While walking through the exhibition < Is that what you call it? > building this afternoon?
Someone shouted - Hey Charles??? I didn’t recognize the guy. < I get that often lately >
He told me his name was Trevor Doyle?
At first, I said - Trevor Doyle??? Trevor????
Then it hit me!!!! He’s the new host of the Trevor Doyle Live on Rogers!!!
As you know? I was cut off by Rogers television < Old Germany > from calling the politicians and the other show call Rich Crosby < UGH!! >
Anyway, I heard on the streets that Trevor was a nice guy.
You know what? He is a nice guy and I believe it’s time for me to put an end by calling Rogers television Old Germany.
I might one night phone the show and see what will happen? If I’m once again denied access to the talk show in a democratic system?
Well, we know what’s going to happen?
I’m glad that I met the guy because he’s truly a nice guy with an open mind.
P.S. I even suggested that if he ever wish to do a show on Blogging? I’ll be happy to appear on his show.
For the record I did appeared twice on the Rogers Talk show.

A jury handed down guilty verdicts Saturday against four of five men charged in connection with a riot that included the burning of a house on Grand Manan Island in New Brunswick.
The defence had argued the men were defending themselves and their community in July when they fired gunshots, beat a man they accused of drug dealing and set his home ablaze.
The house was burned to the ground. The house was burned to the ground.
Jurors had asked several questions about the issue of self-defence.
Two of the defendants facing the most serious charge of arson were taken into custody to await sentencing, while the other three were released.
The nine women and three men on the jury made up their minds shortly after continuing a second day of deliberations in St. Andrews.
They delivered the verdicts to an emotionally charged courtroom, where wives and girlfriends of the accused wept openly upon hearing the news. At one point, the judge warned people to remain calm.

Firefighters had described in court how they arrived to a mob scene at the home of Ronald Ross and said some in the crowd stood in their way by forming a human chain around the burning building.
Prosecutors had told jurors that despite their opinions of the man whose home was destroyed on the night of July 21 and the early morning hours of July 22, islanders from the community of 2,600 had no right to bypass the criminal justice system.
Ross, who now lives in Digby, N.S., had testified that he wasn't running a crack cocaine house, as his attackers suggested.
He admitted to occasionally using the drug, but insisted he did not produce or sell the crack to others.
I’m not one to promote Church concerts but this should be a good one. This group are going to sing old and new songs Sunday night.
You know what? I believe that I’m going to be there for that one. It’s located on top of the hill on Regent Street. Should be good!!!
Take a look at the situation of the court case in Grand Manan?
The whole country is waiting for the jury’s verdict.
Now, lets say the verdict comes down today?
There’s no way the public will know the decision until Monday.
Here in New Brunswick? The media are on vacation during the weekend. Of course, we will know the story on ATV News or the radio stations on Sunday morning.
CBC has promise it would post the verdict on their website at http://www.cbc.ca/nb/
So, if someone hears the verdict? Post the comment in this blog and the whole world will know the whole story in a matter of minutes.
The tension is driving me nuts. I sure can’t wait till Monday morning.
Blogging true stories might come to an end in Canada on Monday. New Brunswick could truly become an official Irving State!!!! Stay tuned...
