Today’s Toronto Casseroles- A Deflated Soufflé

I’ve just come back from Toronto’s casseroles march tonight- it was a beautiful evening for it, lovely weather. I Ieft early, at about 8:30- there were only about 125-150 people there at the time. This is a far-cry from the 600 who turned-up last week, and the 3,000 who showed-up the week before. It seems to me that the people of Toronto aren’t that enthusiastic about having a Marxist revolution.

The ghost of Vlad Lenin is rolling in his mausoleum…

After the march began, the police refused to let the marchers block the main streets. When you have a small crowd, the police end-up having more power. I’m not sure where all of the International Socialists were today, the Bolsheviks didn’t even show-up.

The Euro Cup is going on today- but, for some reason, I’m guessing Toronto’s Marxist community wasn’t watching…

    What Ruth calls “lively” many of us call senseless.

    I, for one, will not be attending any more “peaceful protests” in Vancouver unless there is a group within the protest tasked with making sure that needless violence perpetrated by masked thugs does not occur around families and children.

    I understand that some people are uncomfortable with that but if you won’t go to the police you must police yourselves.
