March for Freedom
April 27, 2003
Sunday was a brilliant spring day -- clear blue sky, bracing winds -- in London, Ontario. Several groups answered the free speech call and rallied to the freedom banner, including supporters of the Canadian Association for Free Expression, the Canadian Heritage Alliance and the Northern Alliance.
We staged a march starting from the Cenotaph in downtown London's Victoria Park. With our large Red Ensigns snapping against the deep blue sky, were certainly created a stirring sight.
The London Free Press covered our protest.
We were warning Londoners of a serious threat to liberty in the form of a proposal crafted by lesbian leader Debbie Lee to make London a "hate free zone." This would involve a ban on renting municipal facilities to "hate" groups and surveillance of "hate" groups. We know that "hate" is a label the politically correct, the sexual special agenda lobby and the anti-White anti-racists love to attach to any who disagrees with them.
For six months, we've sounded the warning about the threat behind this legislation. The march was to again highlight the message.
The march went very well. It was peaceful and constructive.
Sadly, London's meddling "hate squad" chose to dog our every move. Sgt. Don McKinnon, the head of the squad, and his new sidekick Const. Christine Weston, the blonde with black roots, were busily snapping scores of pictures of us. They trailed us right around the large park, photographing us all the way.

I immediately fired off a protest. We are not criminals or haters. Free speech and dissent are not crimes. You wonder at the waste of manpower. Are there no youth gangs, drug problems or illegal immigrants that the trusty two might more profitably pursue on a Sunday afternoon?
The London Hate Squad has a sordid history of harassing young White political activists. It's latest outrage -- prior to today's photo session -- was a campaign by Const. Weston to contact clients of Melissa Guille, the head of the London Branch of the Canadian Heritage Alliance. Miss Guille designs websites. Several of her clients report being contacted by the London cops' Farrah Fawcett wannabe and being informed that Melissa is being "investigated."
The same scuzzy tactics were used a decade ago in Ottawa by "hate squad" supremeo Dan Dunlop, since apparently demoted to a more modest role as a lowly beat cop. Dunlop used to visit the employers of young activists and comment on their political involvement. Many subsequently lost their jobs.
Stopping the development of a political police is one of the key challenge of free speech activists in Canada.Paul Fromm Director CANADIAN ASSOCIATION FOR FREE EXPRESSION INC.
