Yes, The Irvings sure can’t stop themselves!!
I wish this wouldn’t cover me! They cannot be nice!!! Not even if it’s a good thing!!..lol
This afternoon, I was told that I was in the Irving paper.
It’s a paper call - HERE!
It used to be a good little paper until the Irvings bought it.
Anyway...I said - Ohhhh?? They covered my trial??
Nope!!!!!!!!!!!! I was wrong!! < Not the first time >
It was the final result of a survey. Personally, this was the first time I ever heard of it.
So I read it and this is what they said-
12) Local hero for actions in the last 12 months:
Charles Leblanc. Well, if blogging a record amount of misspelled words, calling people bigots and creeping out MLAs and the media makes you a hero, congrats Charles. You've earned your cape. Notwithstanding this, you have to admire the man's tenacity; something everyone can respect.
Now? I was honoured that the public voted me in their survey.
The public has spoken and called me their local hero for the last 12 months but the Irvings just had to put their little jab against me.
They just can’t stop themselves!!...lol
The Irvings are always jabbing anyone that don’t follow their way of thinking.
It’s call brainwashing the public.
Take a look what the Irvings said about me when I was arrested? They twice called me a protester!!
I got nothing against the reporters of the HERE paper. I’m certain the Irvings called them and said - Good job guys!!! Nice Jab!!! ..lol...
I wish to thank everyone who voted for me and I never knew anything of this survey!!!
The old saying - Bad publicity is better than no publicity sure goes a long way with me and the Irvings!!!!...lol..
Sigh...What a bunch!!!!
This is one of those stories that I waited to blog away. Dominick was a fine individual! This is a picture of his wife Debbie.
The City should add the name Eden to Horsfield Street. Here's some past blog on Dominick-
This is a story that was printed in the Irving paper last June -

Horsfield St. 'mayor' wins McGloan award posthumously
By Bobbi-Jean MacKinnon
The so-called Mayor of Horsfield Street has another credit to his name.
Dominick Eden was posthumously given the Thomas L. McGloan Award by Uptown Saint John Inc. Wednesday during the fifth annual Uptown Awards for Excellence.
President Dick Daigle cited Mr. Eden's "relentless efforts to improve the quality of life for residents of the uptown peninsula."
He started by revitalizing Horsfield Street, then went on to fight for any neighbourhood causes, he said.
Debbie Eden, his wife of 22 years, accepted the award on his behalf.
"A handful of individuals . . . continually end up in the forefront and work hard for their community and Dominick was certainly one of those people," she told reporters afterward.
"He had a profound love for this crazy little city and would have loved this honour."
Mr. Eden, 42, died last February of lymphoma, a form of cancer.
He became the inaugural winner of the Thomas L. McGloan award, created in memory of the first president of Uptown Saint John Inc. for his pioneering spirit and devotion to his community.
Mr. McGloan, who died in May 2005, played a major role in the development of several community projects, including the construction of the Harbour Bridge, Market Square and the renovation of the Imperial Theatre.
Other awards included:
Enhancement of a public space: the city and Saint John Energy for the reconstruction of Water Street.
Festival or event: the Winter Lights committee for its "significant efforts in pulling off Canada's largest Christmas party."
Maintenance of property: Prince William Developments Limited for its "attention to detail and high level of care taken to maintain 115 Prince William St., better known as the Old Post Office.
"This building now shines like a crown jewel at night" with newly installed flood lights, said Mr. Daigle.
Renovation or new construction: Commercial Properties Limited for its "exemplary work" on CenterBeam Place, the block of heritage buildings bounded by Granan Lane, King, Canterbury, and Prince William streets.
"This project clearly illustrates the potential of so many buildings in the uptown."
