CTV's Lisa Laflamme lets us, you know the Canadians, know the image that we will always remember about the G20. How nice of her; too bad that the image she wants us to remember doesn't exist.
"the overriding images that this summit will always be remembered for will probably be, you know, turned over police cruisers on fire and smashed windows..."
Turned over police cruisers on fire? Really? I have seen several hundreds of pictures from the G20 trouble spots, including hundreds of the police cars that were burned, but none at all of any turned over cruisers, on fire or not.
( My Andrew Brietbart moment) I am sure Lisa, "CTV's national affairs correspondent", had her facts straight before speaking on national television, so to help her out I will pay cash to the first person who can provide me with a legit picture taken on June 26, 2010 of an overturned, burning Toronto Police cruiser, in downtown Toronto.
UPDATE: Lisa get rewarded for her hard work by getting the anchor job at CTV as Lloyd Robertson announces his retirement after 34 years. 34 years is a long time, in fact it is as long as Ignatieff was out of the country.
--------More weirdness:The secret (fake or not) 5 meter law, a video of a guy it was enforced against, and a guy arrested for impersonating a police officer; which coincidentally is the same guy from the 5 meter video above.
This story is just too weird and it would take way to long to do it all justice, so here are the necessary links with some commentary to put it together.
The so called secret 5 meter law becomes "public" on Friday.
It was not such a secret as it was online on June 16th, but few knew about it and McGuinty's pathetic after spin that this newspaper ad should have lead people find that webpage is a joke. (where in the ad does it tell you where to find the law changes?)
Police Chief Bill Blair now says that there was no 5 meter law.
But it was just days ago that Blair talked with the media about the law and as did Sgt. Tim Burrows of the G8/G20 Integrated Security Unit who said the new regulations are needed to ensure security and strangely enough also said that police have already made "two or three" arrests under the new rules as of Friday morning. ( How do you make arrests under a law that is not really exist?)
Here is the non law actually being used and cited: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=stzTeJuBI7M&feature=related (video to youtube posted June 25th)
The fellow in the video is one Charlie Veitch.
The same Charlie Veitch who was arrested Tuesday the 29th at Pearson Airport for impersonating a peace officer, possibly in relation to the events in the above video. (update: I believe this may be video that brought about the charges. FF to the 6:20 mark)
If the 5 meter law was not real, what business did the police have asking him to identify himself in the first place?
Madness; all of it.
Well all of it but my offer of cash; that is the real deal.
