Patriots Rally Canada Day
Press Pass Picket 3 Years 220 Days2020-07-01 Updated Alberta Legislature Family Canada Day & Rally: About 100 or so Albertans, many calling themselves patriots, took the stage where Black Lives Matter protest took place a couple weeks ago on the south back lawns of the Legislature. No antifa counter protesters were present to disrupt the event or to prevent me from filming and no and corporate news media were present at the time of my arrival to news cover this story, so I published this YouTube to share what I saw... Enjoy your freedoms, thank a veteran Main gallery
Alberta Legislature - All Dressed Up and No MLA Invitation
2020-07-07 Watched the Government online this morning, went down to the Federal Building & tried to get into today's committee meeting. As it turns out according to Sgt-At Arms LASS staff, I have to be invited by an MLA... Wow, No #FreePress, No transparency, no public access, all dressed up with no MLA invitation... #Democracy is in serious trouble in Alberta. Pete Guthrie said he will look into what he can do to help me get back inside the public gallery.
2020-07-08: Alberta Legislature public gallery: First, I want to thank the (Hon) Speaker Nathan Cooper, Alberta Sheriffs, Sgt-At-Arms and LASS Staff for accommodating myself and other visitors to the public gallery today. I felt very safe and warmly welcomed back into the house that belongs to all Albertans. Thank you (Hon) Peter Guthrie, what a thrill watching 🇨🇦👍Alberta democracy in action. #UCP & #NDP. Today Nathan Coopered tossed out 4 points of order, reminding house leaders on both sides of the floor not to use the time slot set aside for points of order to carry on earlier debates. Outside MLA Drew Barnes commented on my tenacity with activism, that I've had some practice with 13 years. I said, I'd like to get my grand kids involved in political activism but my kids won't let me do that... yet. Six pages of notes taken during my stay in the public (not empty press) gallery. I'll post some more tomorrow.
