The above letter was posted on Facebook today by Mike Roy of The Indignants. You may remember Roy and the Indignants from last August when Ezra Levant exposed them as intellectually challenged “know nothings” during an anti-pipeline rally. Roy was part of the “truther” movement prior to Occupy- but, since then, he and the Indignants have kept most of their focus on union related issues. Well, that, and expressing their vile hatred towards the police.
The letter is a response to a freedom of information request to London police asking them to detail policing costs for the 2012 Canadian Auto Workers (now unifor) Day of Action- an event where the Canadian Labour Congress and Ontario Federation of labour invited 1000′s of people to march in support of a labour dispute between the CAW and Electro-Motive (a subsidiary of Caterpillar). The plant was being shut-down, and there wasn’t anything the CAW was going to be able to do to change that- particularly blocking traffic for the 99%.
Roy claims London police wasted $12,273 (which is actually $13,273) in an effort “for intimidating peaceful protesters”- without any evidence of how protesters were “intimidated”. But, is that what really happened here? Digging a little deeper into the situation, the real blame should be pointed elsewhere.
