An Echo In Here....

The first 'real' post I ever wrote here was this one, about the situation in Caledonia, Ontario, and how the McGuinty Liberals' lack of response to the crisis would simply reinforce the use of thuggery, violence, intimidation, lawlessness and general brouhaha by other groups who happen to dislike their lot in life.

And now, lo and behold, another group of native 'protestors' are taking similar actions in Desoronto, Ontario. Coincidentally, this is another situation in which a land claim has suddenly become significant when there is the prospect of the land in question being developed and there is money to be made. I'm not a betting man, which means I will likely not ever attend the Caledonia Casino when Ken Hill gets it built, but if I was, I would wager that this Deseronto situation would not even arise if the McGuinty government had mounted a half adequate response in Caledonia. As it is, they're going to roll over and play dead in Deseronto as well.

Watch this particular snowball begin its journey down the hill, gathering weight and momentum all the way....

For those that might wonder, my daughter would still eat all the chocolate in the world, given a chance. Sadly for her, her parents are not as weak or easily swayed as an Ontario Liberal.

Call me wacky... but when your best alternative to a negotiated agreement is shutting down legitimate businesses and threatening to kill people... isn't it time to back up a little and punt?

McNutless' inaction has us in a wonderful situation now. Mike Harris knew how to handle a bunch of lawless native thugs ... Betya dollars to the Ontario Paralyzed Police's donuts the native issue gets real ugly come spring.
