The problem with aging is that you remember things. You remember what things were like when you were young. You remember when your society was relatively peaceful with people living in relative harmony. You remember when folk lived in their homes not on sidewalks; not in tents or rolled up in snow banks.
Remembering the gentle greatness of your society is surely damaged by the emergence of a tyrannical government that turns on its Citizens; answers to no one and follows subjective and unproven philosophies and in some cases failed philosophies generated by history's most deadly and brutal tyrants.
Recently we are treated with patriotic individuals standing on our streets displaying signs signalling disgust with their government. However, it should be expected predicated on the preponderance of Citizens concerned with the direction our government is taking our country what with terrorism on the rise from the horror faction of newly imported ISIS fighters not to mention the destructive decisions of our tyrannical Prime Minister.
The Group 'A Better Niagara' bolstered by our Brock Professor David Siegel quite rightly champions the right for a school board trustee to speak her opinion publicly even though that same school board trustee demonstrates in public to silence the free speech of others.
Even our Mayor publicly tries to stymie the free speech of his Councilors as if he has never heard of a minority report! Free speech is our only bulwark against the secrecy that breeds Corruption.

It is shocking to me that in 2018 white supremacists would stand up in public, in St Catharines, to promote their hateful, racist views. It happened, today, in front of our office on Geneva Street.
A few showed up and if their intent was to intimidate or shame me in some way, it's done the opposite. I will continue to be a voice against hatred in our community. The Prime Minister often says, and I truly believe "we are strong because of our diversity, not in spite of it".
A big thank you to the Niagara AntiRacism Coalition and Karrie Porter for organizing a counter protest at the last minute. They outnumbered the white supremacists and showed us what Niagara should truly stand for - an inclusive community, free of hate.
Our wanna-be Tyrant PM Justin Trudeau is so far out of step with his Citizens that he considers it normal to castigate anyone who disagrees him by spewing a slew of demeaning names; controlling the media; thwarting the public's right to communicate with each other; penalizing free speech; using Citizens as Tax Fodder and yes importing hate in the form of ISIS Fighters.
It may be that the memory fails or it may be that we have just not been paying attention but it seems that corruption has overtaken nearly every crook and cranny of officialdom!
Sadly, it must be pointed out repeatedly that 'Freedom of speech' is ostensibly protected by our 'Charter of Rights'!
