$200.00 AN HOUR WHICH REMINDS ME OF A STORY IN THE SUMMER OF 2003!!!!!
While walking by the Legislature this afternoon. I noticed they were removing the Union Jack from the People's House.
I wonder why is the reason the Legislative Assembly has to pay $200.00 an hour for a crane?
You would believe there would be a cheaper way to fix these flag poles? Only in New Brunswick!
I wrote a book about my protest and I found this little story in my emails.
This story goes back to the summer of 2003. Enjoy....
Yesterday, I told Andre the commissionaire the Union Jack was flying loosely on top of the Legislature.
It was a terrible sight!
During that time lots of tourists from all around the Globe were taking pictures of the Legislature with
its Union Jack flying like a pirate flag.
It was like this fo four days.
I once again approached Andre inside with my concern.
This was my third attempt to ask Andre about this ugly picture.
The Protocol of this Province must
I have had enough of this waiting game
so therefore I phoned my bigot buddy Matthew Glenn from the Anglo Society.
For you people who don’t know Matthew Glenn?
He’s a member of a group that would be to me like the KKK to the blacks!
They don’t respect the Acadian
population in this province.
This was the first time that I ever phone Matthew over his private home.
This is how the conversation over the phone went - Hello!!! Is the bigot there?
He answered- CCCCharlie??? Is that
I said- It’s me Bigot! Get your bigot butt in front of the Legislature.
He insisted that I told the
story over the phone but I hung up and told him to meet me near my tent.
I was surprise because he showed up a few hours later with his Anglo Society
flag on his truck and blowhorn.
He said - What’s the problem Charlie?
I directed his attention to the Union Jack.
He said- Ohhhh that’s not good. How long it’s been like that Charlie?
I told the bigot - Eight days!!!
He said- I’m going to have a chat with the people inside the Legislature.
He was inside for around 10 minutes
and it was too quiet.
I opened huge doors and shouted- IF
IT WAS A FLEUR DE LIS?? IT WOULD BE FIX! FIX THE UNION JACK!!
I proceeded to shut the door.
Once Matthew was outside, a staff told the bigot that he couldn’t fix
the flag because they couldn’t reach it.
I found the staff was very rude to the bigot.
He went to his truck and put his uniform on with his signs.
He walked towards the Legislature with his blowhorn and shouted- Fix the Union Jack!
I watched the bigot for around 10
minutes and told him - Ok, lets get this show on the road. GIVE ME THAT BLOWHORN!!
At first, he didn’t trust me with the little toy.
He made me promise that I wouldn’t damage to loud speaker.
Once I had the toy in my hand I told Matthew - A lot of Acadians would
love to take this little blowhorn and throw it in the Saint John River but we’re going to make history
because this is going to be the first time that a Acadian have ever spoke Le Francais throught this bigot blowhorn.
I took a deep breath and shouted-
HONTE ..HONTE HONTE..ARRANGER LE UNION JACK!!!
Minutes later, people started to come out and wanted to know what was going on?
The tourists told me to continue because they could hear me loud and clear
from the inside.
I shouted my objection en Francais
and he spoke in English.
One hour went by and I must admit that the staff inside the Legislature were
getting very ugly hearing my voice loud and clear.
They were used listening to the bigot statements by Matthew but this was a total different story.
The protest was very quiet until I got the little toy in my hand.
Can you imagine a person with ADHD with a blowhorn?
It even scares this Acadian.
Later on, Bev Harrisson the speaker of the house showed up in his car.
I told the bigot - Hey? Do you know who that guy is?
He didn’t know.
I told him that it was Bev Harrison the speaker of the House.
He said- Ohhhh..is that him Charlie? I
got to talk to him.
Before he left I ordered Matthew
to give me his blowhorn.
Once the speaker got out of his car he was confronted by the bigot and you can
imagine the look on Bev’s face once he saw him in his face and noticed this Acadian 20 feet behind him
shouting - YOU’RE A PROUD MONARCHIST BEV!! FIXE THE UNION JACK!!!
I’m certain that at first Bev must have believed it was a revolution.
A Acadian and a bigot side by
He quickly made a disappearing act in the Legislature.
I might add that I never saw Bev moved so fast in all my life.
Around 25 minutes later, I believe that we heard some noise from the top of the
We both look but the flag was the same.
A few Acadians told me that I shouldn’t be fighting for the Union Jack!
I flatly told them it was the protocol that I was concern about.
It’s been the protocol since 1984
and should be respected.
One young beautiful girl came
by and it was the mystery person who dropped by the muffins and orange juice a few days back.
I call her – Angel because she acts like one.
She wanted to know more about the policies of the Anglo Society?
Matthew tried to explain to her what his Party was all about.
I quickly intervene and said- Don’t talk to him because he’s a bigot!
She was confuse that I called him an insult.
If we’re a team on the front lawn of the Legislature? Shouldn’t we be friends?
I explain to the girl of the situation and told her to watch carefully the question that I’m going to asks the bigot?
I asked Matthew- If the Acadian Flag.... He quickly jumped in and said –Banner!!
I said - Flag he said Banner.
At the end to make peace, I called it a Banner and asked him if the Banner was
unhook as the Union Jack would he be here protesting?
He quickly answered - Of course not!
I told the Angel this is where the difference lies?
I don’t care for the Union Jack but it’s the Protocol that I respect.
That’s the different between myself and the Bigot.
The next morning at 8:30am while enjoying a nice coffee, I noticed a Crane from Capital towing in front of the Legislature.
A worker from Supply and Services when up and fix the Union Jack.
It took only 30 seconds to fixes the
flag but at a cost of $200.00.
I guess that it’s worth the money to keep Charles LeBlanc quiet and they did
let it known that they don’t ever wish to see me with a blowhorn again on the front steps of the Legislature.
BERNARD LORD WILL CONTINUE TO DRUG AND KILL OUR CHILDREN!!!!!
WHAT'S WITH THE LITTLE STONES ON THE HEADSTONES ANYWAY???
I love walking in the cemeteries. It goes to show you how life is so short. The Fernhill Cemetery is the most beautiful one in the whole Province.
In the back, there's a Jewish Cemetery. I noticed that many of them have little stones on the headstones. Can someone explain to me the reason of this action?
Yes, life is indeed a short ride and enjoy it while you're here. It doesn't matter if you die at a young age of 4 years old or 100!!! It's still a very short ride.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SHEANA!!!!!
