Saturday, June 24, 2006
This afternoon, I bumped into this guy.
I asked him if the Frdericton Police Force have bothered him?
He told me last night around 2:00am? He was surrounded by five police officers and they kicked him.
He couldn't understand what was going on?
They told him - MOVE ON YOU PIECE OF SH@T!!!!
They turned around and gave the guy a $70 ticket.
So? Did this story truly happen?
Is the Police truly out of control? Who knows?
I have been told that I shouldn't be walking alone at night. I don't get scare easily.
Can someone send me the letter in the Gleaner that he said that the poor should be exterminated from the Legislature. He never said it that way but pretty darn close.
Hey? If he can say lies about me? I'm going to return the favour.
Someone appraoched on the streets and he told me that he read it in the French Newspaper.
Now? We have a labour leader going against the poor.
As far as I'm concern? This man should resign but I can't wait ti face this BIGOT in person.
What else do you call an individual who goes public against the poor of this Province?
Send me that letter. Merci Beaucoup!!!!

I had a very busy week. Running here and there. Even for a person with ADHD? It can bring a person down.
So, a couple sent me an email asking me if I would be interested to attend a BBQ and of course lots of beers?
I gladly accepted their offer.
There I was in la la land on their deck relaxing with a nice cold beer.
No bloggling, no MLA, no police officers. NO NOTHING!!!
I decided to listen to CBC radio for the news at 5:30pm.
I almost chocked on my beer when I heard that Labour leader Tom Mann speaking in support of me being banned from the Legislature?!
This appointed official told the listeners that I was harassing the employees of the Union.
THIS IS A LIE!!!!!
Well, trust me! I don’t care how big the labour movement!!!
They’re not going to get away with this one.
C.U.P.E. is supporting a Communist system?
Trust me, I’m going to walk in their office next week and I’m going to get to the bottom of this.
Maybe Bob Hicks put in a complaint when I took this picture?
Maybe Bob Davidson told the security staff that I was harassing him?
I don’t know but I’m going to get to the bottom of this.
How can the Saint John Police Force investigate my complaint if they belong to a Union????
Did you know that the members of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission belong to C.U.P.E.!
Ok....Maybe this is the reason that those people wouldn’t accept my case?
Shame on the union and I will confront these people next week and of course I will have someone with me taking pictures!
This is changing into a war! They would love that I crossed the line but I flatly refuse to do so.
They go public with these statements and what did they expect me to do?
Always something......I will go in the office of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission next week and demand a non-union person investigates my case.
I took this picture yesterday and the guy told me that he was surprised that he wasn't arrested by the Fredericton Police Force.
It's About Poverty - Not Panhandling
Public Forum June 28, 2006 - 7 - 9 pm
(June 19, 2006 - Fredericton, NB) - The recent crackdown on panhandlers in Fredericton's downtown core will be the topic of discussion at a public forum organized by the Fredericton
Anti-Poverty Organization (FAPO). The event will be held on Wednesday, June 28, from 7-9 pm at the Monsignor Boyd Family Center, 120 Regent Street, Fredericton.
Guest speakers include Pat Carlson, Executive Director of the Fredericton Emergency Shelters and George Piers, Administrator of the Fredericton Community Kitchen.
Dan Weston, FAPO Coordinator, says the panhandling issue is a lightening rod for the underlying issues facing the poor in Fredericton and throughout New Brunswick.
"The province of New Brunswick has the lowest welfare rates in the country and an affordable housing crisis sparked by soaring energy costs," Weston said. "Single welfare recipients who get $270 a month cannot afford decent housing or food: consequently, they're out begging on the street to make ends meet."
Weston says it was bad enough before the price of oil "went through the roof" but he predicts it's just going to get worse over the next few months as expected rent increases take effect.
"Expect to see more people begging in the streets and getting arrested. At least they'll have a roof over their heads and three square meals a day courtesy of the taxpayer," says Weston.
Weston believes that it's in everybody's interest to come up with better ways to get people off the streets. He suggests "jobs and affordable housing are a very good place to start and if we can't
give them jobs, then the provincial government has to raise welfare rates to accommodate rent increases."
Both Pat Carlson and George Piers have worked for many years with the city's poor and homeless and view the rising tide of poverty with alarm.
"Understanding the root causes of social issues means examining poverty," says Carlson, whose men's and women's emergency shelters provide housing for the city’s poor. Calling panhandling "a by-product of poverty," she invites everyone, including the city's poor and homeless, to attend the public meeting.
Refreshments and sandwiches will be served and all are welcome.
