This week, I walked passed the Irving Golden Ball in Saint John and guess who came in with his vehicle at the same time?
It was Kenneth Irving himself!!!
The funny part about this little confrontation was I was wearing my anti-Atlantica t-shirt.
Sure was funny. Any normal human being would have quickly zipped up their jacket but not this guy.
Kenneth recognized me and I was covering my t-shirt and said - I don’t know if you wish to chat with me with the t-shirt I’m wearing???
I believe it was the first time that he ever saw the anti-Atlantica T-shirt. It was given to me after I left the jail cell.
The individual knew that I wasn’t a protester so they gave me a free one. Hey? I’m on social assistant so I can use a new shirt...lol...
I had a very good chat with the Irving Billionaire.
As a manner of fact? It went so good that his phone rang but he never took the call.
I will not disclosed our 10 to 15 minute chat because it’s between me and Kenneth.
He’s a truly nice guy. He’s one of the Irvings that I truly enjoy chatting with.
There’s no hold bars and the cards are on the table.
But I will add one thing?
At the end of the conversation, I quickly went for my camera in my pouch.
If there would have been security personal around?
I would have been shot! It goes to show you that we live in a beautiful part of the world.
Where else could Billionaires walk around freely and safely???
Going back to the camera?
I said- Ok....the party over!!!
Lets take a picture of me and you!!!
Kenneth didn’t seems to enjoy having his picture taken. I reminded the Billionaire that I have his cousin J.D. Irving on front blog and since you’re the one that I truly respect? Come on! One picture??
He didn’t like having his picture taken and I respect his privacy. I follow the same action with his uncle Jack. I chatted with him last month but he didn't wish to have his picture taken.
He did allow me to take a picture of the vehicle he was driving.
Pretty one eh???
Yes, it was nice to meet Kenneth Irving face to face again and as I said in the past and I will say it again.
I got nothing against the Irvings.
They’re fine individuals of the society but it’s the Management that I can’t stand.
Too bad that I didn’t get a picture but you readers know that I wouldn’t spend the time blogging a false story like this one.
There’s never a dull moment in my life.
I wonder if the Irvings will print my letter? This is serious stuff!!!!!
To the Editor,
Once is bad enough but twice? I must write a letter of objection to your paper. On July 26,2006 you printed a headline in the court section - Protesters enter not guilty plea.
I wish to make myself absolutely clear on this issue.
I wasn’t a protester. I was covering Atlantica for my blog.
I was in the area when the protesters ran through the doors at the Trade Convention Centre.
As any good journalist. I know a good scoop when I saw one. I was with the media taking pictures for my blog.
The police officers bypassed the protesters and the media. They zeroed in on this little blogger.
The question is why?
I might add that once in jail. The Saint John Police Force deleted all my pictures.
The media of CFBC and CBC covered my day in court in a very good manner. They called me a Blogger but your paper called me a protester.
The question is why?
The Irvings owns all the major newspapers in this province therefore bloggers will be the journalism style of the future.
This court trial will determine how bloggers should be treated in New Brunswick.
It is a first in this Province. This is a very important issue.
I just wish to make myself clear to your readers that I wasn’t a protester but a blogger.
Is his name John Park or John Parks??? This John Parks laid the charge against me at Atlantica. He told the courts that he told me to leave the area and I didn't!
This is a big lie!!!!
Is John Park or Parks married to an Irving Employee???
Why would a member of the Saint John Police Forve lie to get me convicted?
This coming from a member of the Saint John Police Force should be a concern to everyone.
Muffin and Hurricaine are ready to go. They would make a good pet.
