Bert Easterbrook, hero of the Stanley Cup Riot that started at a Waves Coffee shop, and that Harsha Walia denied was connected to the #BlackBloc has just disclosed he was one of the people arrested at the port demonstration today! Bert is involved with Occupy Vancouver, but the port action was called-off by OV a few hours earlier.
Vancouver’s SunVinceTai published a story about Bert on June 17th that labelled him A hero among the rotten rioting pack! That’s quite the compliment!
Bert is a writer for Cannabis Culture magazine, and Facebook friends with Dana Larsen– a former candidate for the Pot Party and leadership candidate for the NDP who was ousted because of his background in horticulture.
This happened only one week since Mayor Plasticman made the announcement he would support pot legalization!
At the last convention, there was speculation from Alex Tsakumis that Eby could have spent time “in the Larsen hospitality suite with the windows shut and a wet towel under the door…”
Is this what Mayor Gregor means when he says he want’s Vancouver to be the world’s “greenest city?” Or, is that as a reference to the green-coloured sleeping mats that Michael Geller has been quoted cost the city $2,800 per month per-mat!
And, how did this story get linked to so many damn politicians…
“Bert Easterbrook is the grandson of a Vancouver Policeman, a photographer and care worker for severely disabled people.”
The comments section is deja vous….
The above picture is of me, Ben Peason, one of Bert’s best friends. That pic was taken on Wall st., on our way to the Occupy The Ports Protest and was a sweet opportunity. Why is it up there?
It was in the collection of pictures that were given to me from the day of the port incident. I thought it was the one of the best pictures I’ve seen from Occupy Vancouver- many people have told me the same. I’ve met the guy in the picture, and am having trouble putting the face to the name. But, if you’d like it taken down are, and you can prove to me that you are this person, I’ll gladly take it down.
Do you remember who I am? We’ve had some nice conversations in the past. ;-)
Many of these types have NDP connections! It`s pretty sad to think the this socialist party may run Canada after the election in October!!
