….lives and mostly hides out these days in Surrey. She is just being cautious. But she has to be. She is not alone. Her neighbours are being cautious, too. There have been a lot of shootings in Surrey and the last ones were on her street. She doesn’t feel as if she can go for a stroll in her neighbourhood anymore without thinking twice. Maybe three times. She doesn’t even think about it in the evening. Nobody does. She has to be really careful – even parting the curtains to look out the window. Her kid can’t go out to play.
No one lets little kids go out to play in the streets and parks alone anymore anywhere it seems but her new level of security is a step up. In fact, it is a form of ‘lockdown’ for her and her child.
Harper and the gang of idiots have concentrated on fear mongering to sell their C-51 legislation but it is ironic if not negligent to concentrate on fears of Muslims, immigrants and terrorists (apologies for the joint reference) when the real danger to Canadians is ordinary money-seeking, low-life, criminals.
I need to reiterate: no one in Canada has ever been attacked by a terrorist. That John Nuttal and Michael Zihaf-Bibeau are trotted out as so-called terrorists is asinine. They were born and bred Canadian nut-bars through and through.
But – you already know all that. I am just re-stating the obvious. But what is NOT obvious is what normal everyday negligence on the part of government is actually doing to the people. Aside from having to hide out (somewhat) in her own home, she is also powerless to move. No one will buy houses in that part of the lower mainland despite record high prices even in Vancouver’s Skid Row. Surrey is deemed by the dollar-voters to be a worse environment than even the Dowtown Eastside. Skid Row. That’s quite a statement.
An intelligent, law-abiding, major contributor to her community (and the province) with a young child has to hide out in her own home because of narco-criminals running pell mell and creating all hell around her. Does C-51 do anything about that? No.
The RCMP are supposed to curb that sort of thing………..but………..well………..maybe they are ………or not…not yet, anyway……………or……………maybe….who knows?
On the assumption that the RCMP is on the up-and-up (an assumption I make generously), why are they so impotent? Why can they taser a teen almost to death or shoot an innocent senior, jump on the backs of traffic violators and occasionally get caught with their fingers in all the wrong places but they don’t seem to be able to catch the criminals who are obvious-by-their-colours, tattoos, cars and street-strutted gangsta behaviours?
I know you NEED proof but you need proof for a conviction, not an arrest. Tasering Robt. Dziekanski to death proves they needed no evidence – just a well founded fear for their well-being even tho – in his case – they were armed and in the majority by 4 to 1. In other words; why not hassle the bad guys instead of the hapless citizens?
Put bluntly: my friend is being hassled by the thugs. Terrorized. Trapped like a rat. Her kid is being stifled in her growth. My friend is losing money (that usually seems to matter) and the police and the government is failing her completely. No Muslims involved. No flag-carrying terrorists. Just the subtle influence of evil and insanity, greed and poverty, isolation and well, just punks-being-ugly, mostly. Young, poor, ignorant and unemployed idiots with nowhere to put their misguided energy.
Some of the crooks are immigrants but just as many are Canadian citizens. This government (Feds and Province) is failing her and them completely. Being an unemployed, ignorant youth-out-of-culture is a recipe for this sort of thing. The government knows that. It is total dereliction of duty and responsibility. Total absence of accountable, constructive presence for her and her neigbours. AND the punks. They are just NOT doing their job. NOT in the least.
How can Harper harp about ISIL and Ukraine and other bloody distant nonsense when the kids next door can’t even play in the park? That guy has to go and he should take Christy Clark with him.
