Bens response to Jo Perkins on twitter about the announcement that VicPD are investigating assaults etc


What an as$hole







Also love that Ben now believes himself to be omniscient. There couldn't have been any assaults because Ben didn't see them. And then any chance to stoke his own fantasies about the police... today he imagines them to be spreading fake news, no doubt because his fantasy involves them being racist tools of an oppressive colonial regime. I really don't know how the police chief can stand to be around this buffoon.

i wonder if this "i didn't see it happen so it must be fake news" applies to everything... he didn't see the bike get stolen so it must not have gotten stolen, he didn't see the store get broken into so that must be fake news.... he has never seen a shop lifter in action so there must be no shoplifters where he shops

All entrances blocked?

 

 

 

It was not clear how or when Austin entered the building, given the blockade, but she was inside by the time ceremonies began in the early afternoon. https://www.cbc.ca/n...esday-1.5459097

 

 

 

 

.....Douglas Building..... and a lower level that connects to underground service tunnels that run throughout the legislative precinct.

Just the ones we know about.

Of course, I forgot about that. I've been in that tunnel decades ago. Connects the Leg with the Douglas Building. Ingenious.

Knew a guy worked there claimed he kept a liquor cabinet with some other folks off one of the tunnels and said to make stops in between fetching files don’t know if that’s true

https://vimarina.ca/...ls-victoria-bc/   FROM THE PARLIAMENT BUILDINGS

Having driven and walked past the nondescript Douglas Building on Government Street many times, it’s exciting to learn of the tunnel that runs beneath. Intended to offer dry access between the Parliament buildings, the ‘Bunker’ (as it’s known), then to the Douglas Building, a tunnel, now locked to the public, runs beneath government street. It’s suggested that such tunnels run throughout the legislative precinct.

This is probably a good time for Trudeau to return to Canada.

Overnight campers in Vancouver at Broadway & Cambie. Should be an interesting morning commute.

The Victoria Police Department says it is investigating reports of assault at the B.C. Legislature building during ongoing demonstrations in support of Wet’suwet’en hereditary chiefs.

 

In a statement, VicPD asked witnesses and victims to contact them “after receiving reports that people were assaulted and injured during the protest.”

 

VicPD said it is aware of “reports in local media and on social media of people being assaulted and injured” and is actively investigating those reports.

 

 

 

 

 

if the protesters would have been moved out of the doorways several days ago there would have been no reason for close interaction with the workers and public.  that's what should have happened.

Instead we got this: https://twitter.com/...3599132679?s=21

Police asking a protestor/organizer if people needing access to the building will “have safe passage.”

Then reports of assault and injury emerged. Police may be investigating now but clearly “safe passage” did not apply to all individuals who needed access to the Leg.

As for Isitt, his political career beyond Victoria is over. He’s caged himself into municipal politics unless he runs as an independent federally or provincially and against all odds manages to win.

Meanwhile the MP for Victoria, former Vic councillor Laurel Collins, had zero to say via twitter yesterday. Zilch.

as usual the reason for the protest escalation to roads etc. is the enabling stance.  if police never move in the protesters of course become emboldened and then try for the next most outrageous location.

 

protesters have thousands of places to protest in canada where they will be heard.  they should go to those places and not block roads railways offices and other buildings.

A kind of social terrorism has taken hold in our communities - where a vocal minority can disrupt and make miserable the lives of a conventional majority.  Polite social discourse has dissolved and the ability to navigate the nuance to good public policy is being lost.  If ever there was a time for a pragmatic movement towards civic responsibility, it would be now.

Protestors are leaving the Leg grounds after vying they would remain until police removed their presence from Wet. territory and the gas line was cancelled.

This begs the question, what’s going on?

What's going on is the protesters are being strategic. Art of War. Make it unpredictable. Instead of a big protest that fizzles out, you have guerilla protests that can pop up at any time. Keeps people on edge.
