Civil Liberties, Politics, Ninjas & Cream Pies!

David Eby: Got a cream pie in his face

David Eby: Got a cream pie in his face

Shortly after the Olympics, Vancouver was entertained with a type of event I’ll label ‘Ninja theater’. Two participants of Occupy Vancouver were victims of a vicious cream pie attack by Black Bloc apologists…

The attack was intended for David Eby, the head of the BC Civil Liberties Association. He was accompanied by Chris Shaw, UBC Professor, author of anti-Olympic book Five Ring Circus, and a candidate for today’s election!

Eby & Shaw share at least four commonalities- both were involved in anti-Olympic protests, both are involved in Occupy Vancouver, both have spoke out against the Heart Attack incident, and both have had to brush cream pie off of themselves after a (supposed) Black Bloc retaliation.

I wonder what they have to say about our ninjas? Chris Shaw was the first to speak-out last weekend when I asked a panel of candidates if we should use riot squads to shutdown OV. His answer was quick, and the same as the other candidates- A Resounding No!

Guys, can you throw in a word or two about your opinion on the appearance of Black Bloc at OV a couple weeks ago? Why were they there, and how do we make sure they are gone?

That’s how my eyes go too!
