QUEBECOIS DAN BUSSIERES IS PUSHING NEW BRUNSWICKERS TO THE LIMIT!!! METAL DETECTORS IN THE PEOPLE'S HOUSE!!
I heard today there's metal detectors in place.
Very sad day indeed!!!
Yes, there's many citizens in the Saint John area who truly misses the show and Saint Johners should have the right to a talk show.
Abel LeBlanc is suppose to work on this issue.
A person sure cannot go by the Irvings papers!! That's for sure!!!!
This accident happen in Saint John South End this afternoon.
Tim Smith took these pictures and I’m surprise the Saint John Police Force didn’t arrest Tim and deleted all the pictures?? < I had to say that one >
Ok...the accident happen 5 minutes after the closing of the school and a Mail truck went through a stop sign and hit another vehicle.
From what Tim told me over the phone. A four stop system should be in place close to all the schools in the Province.
Thank God no one got killed!!
In closing, Tim told an Irving photographer Noel Chenier - It’s ok!! I’m here!!! You can go home now!!
This is what is good about the internet. You don’t have to wait till the morning Irving Paper and you can post as many pictures as you want!!!
He said- Hmmm??? There’s Bernard Lord!!!
I said to myself - Yeah right!!
I turned around and sure enough it was the former Premier of New Brunswick.
I quickly reached my hand out saying - Bonjour Bernard!
Now, will he just keep on walking by and ignore moi?
He came forward and reply- Bonjour Charles!
Sure was different seeing Bernard Lord with no one in the area.
He had a leather jacket on.
I said - Come on Bernard? I got to take a picture of this one??
He said - No Charles! You’ll use it against me....lol...He was laughing and I told him that I wouldn’t because he’s no longer the Premier.
I insisted for a picture and he agreed only if I let him take the picture.
Now, That was scary stuff giving the former Premier my camera.
Would he dropped it by accident??? < He would have good reason to do so!! >...lol
Bernard took this picture and I must admit that he’s pretty good with the camera.
Afterwards, I shook his hand and told him that I didn’t have any hard feelings towards the former Premier.
I believe he understood where I was coming from because my issue is the drugging of the children and that’s the way it is.
We continued to chat about different issues and I won’t disclose our little chat because it was off the record. Off the record is off the record.
Afterwards, the guy on the bench told me that he has never seen Bernard Lord on the streets.
This was his first time.
This is what Shawn Graham has to do as Premier. He must continue walking on the streets meeting people.
The guy was surprised that there were no bodyguards around the former Premier.
I told the guy that New Brunswick isn’t the States. T
The Irvings and the Premier can walk freely on the streets.
If the day arrive that Charles LeBlanc, the premier or the Irvings are shot on the streets?
Than it’ll be all over for New Brunswick.
Lets face facts here? If I was as outspoken in the States as I was in this province? What do you think would happen?
Think about it!!!
We live in a beautiful part of the world! It’s a darn shame that the drug problem will ruin everything we have.
It was good to see Bernard in a happy mood and it looks like he’s happy!
Well? It’s official!!! I never expected it would come down to this but it did.
Jamie Irving is totally out of control in Saint John.
The Irvings are denying the right to New Brunswickers to write letters to the Editor.
Remember this story the Irvings covered my court appearance?

Blogger to argue police violated his Charter rights
SAINT JOHN - A lawyer for a blogger charged with obstructing a peace officer at the Atlantica conference earlier this year will use the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms to defend his client.
Harold Doherty served notice Wednesday when he appeared in Provincial Court to set a trial date on behalf of Charles Joseph LeBlanc.
"It will be a very interesting trial," Judge William McCarroll said as he set aside a full day for the proceedings to take place on Nov. 2. "I am looking forward to it."
LeBlanc, of Fredericton, and Andrew Morgan Webber of Halifax, were charged with obstructing a peace officer during a protest at the international Atlantica conference held in the Saint John Trade and Convention Centre in late June.
Webber initially pleaded not guilty, but changed his plea to guilty and apologized. He was granted an absolute discharge because it was his first offence.
Doherty supplied a brief to the court when the judge asked how he planned to use the Charter for the defence.
Doherty said he will seek a stay of proceedings under a section of the Charter because LeBlanc's rights were breached under three different sections. He said his client's rights were violated when LeBlanc was arrested arbitrarily and without justification.
His rights were also breached when a police officer retrieved LeBlanc's digital camera from the floor after his arrest and, without a search warrant or reasonable grounds, viewed the images in the camera and then deleted them, his lawyer contends.
Doherty said the "intentional deletion of images" was in fact a deletion of evidence that might have assisted LeBlanc in the presentation of his evidence for his defence.
He said the photographic images were of the events, people and places that had figured in his arrest.
The lawyer also said in the brief that LeBlanc's arrest, search of his camera and deletion of images, constituted a breach of a section of the Charter that guarantees freedom of thought, belief, opinion and experiences, including freedom of the press and other medium of communication.
In a letter to this newspaper, LeBlanc maintained that he wasn't a protester at the conference. He was covering the Atlantica conference for his blog and happened to be in the area when the protesters ran through the doors at the Trade and Convention Centre.
Bloggers are the journalism style of the future and the trial will determine how bloggers should be treated in New Brunswick, he said in the letter.
LeBlanc has been banned from entering the provincial legislature or its grounds by a committee of provincial MLAs. The committee said he was banned for showing disrespectful behaviour and harassing legislature and security staff and members of the general public.
Jamie Irving did good until the last paragraph. I wrote this letter over two weeks ago.
To the Editor,
I must send you a letter explaining a little more details of me being banned from the New Brunswick Legislature.
I was told there was a story in your paper of my court appearance in Saint John on Wednesday.
I read the story and everything was ok until I got to the banning of the Legislature.
At the very end of the Story you wrote -
LeBlanc has been banned from entering the provincial legislature or its grounds by a committee of provincial MLAs. The committee said he was banned for showing disrespectful behaviour and harassing legislature and
security staff and members of the general public.
I got one question?
What does this has to do with my court appearance in Saint John?
I just wish to make myself very clear on one issue.
The former Speaker Tanker Malley told the media that I was warned on many occasions to stop harassing the public or the staff.
I got news for you? I was never warned once!!! Not one single instance has the staff approached me asking me to stop harassing people in the People’s House.
As a matter of fact, I never chatted with the staff for over one year but that’s another story. The story is in my blog of the way the Sergeant At Arms Dan Bussieres went out of his way to have me fired from a job that I found working at the New Brunswick Legislature.
It’s a darn shame that your paper had to mention the banning because I believe it’s only one more way to dis-credit this case.
Blogging is the way of the future and this is a very important case in New Brunswick.
The Irvings should concentrate of the way the Police Department deleted all my pictures from my camera and not the banning of the Legislature.
This is Canada and not China!!!
There’s going to be a new Speaker in the House and maybe the sad issue can be settle.
Trust me, I will find out the true reasons that I was banned from the Legislature and then maybe the Irvings can do a story on injustice of New Brunswickers at the Legislature.
Please put aside Charles LeBlanc in your story and concentrate on the issue in hand,
That issue is democracy as we know it!
So? Jamie Irving took the unusual step in denying my letter to be printed.

The Irvings can write a story discrediting a citizen but that individual is not allowed to fight back!!!
This is pure Germany all over again!!!
It was bad enough that the Irvings twice called me a protester in their paper but now this???
I sent a couple of private letters asking them if they would print my letter but I got no answer.
They did tell me that they got the letter but wouldn’t tell me if it would be printed?
This is a very serious issue.
If we had CFBC Talk of the Town on the air?
I would just call in and blast the paper but we don’t have a talk show and Rogers Television < Old Germany > made it very clear that only certain New Brunswickers will be allowed to call the Talk show!
So? What’s the next step? Well, maybe I can organize a little protest in front of the telegraph Journal in Saint John.
I am going to wait a couple of more days and sent a letter to the Atlantic Press Council < total waste of time >
I appeared in front of the Senate last denouncing the Irving Monoply in this Province so I’ll send them a letter.
Do I wish to cause a bad public relation nightmare with Jamie Irving?
Of course not but I will fight for freedom of speech! It's bad enough the Irvings have a Sleuth section to discredit anyone who crossed their path but now this???
A paper who discredits a citizen? They should allow them to fight back!!!
Freedom must remain alive in New brunswick!!!!
