I chatted with a few people so we could hold a protest at that meeting.
Denouncing the way, this appointed Commission treats the poor people of this Province.
The meeting was invited to the public but there was a catch?
You had to pay $60.00 to go in.
Over the weekend, I came out with an idea? I will show up on my own as a blogger.
They were celebrating 40 years of Human Rights in New Brunswick.
I was prepared for a showdown. If the media was there than I should be allowed in there also.
I had papers in my pocket of the verdict on bloggers in Saint John.
This would be great!
These people would stop me at the door and I would tell them to call the Police.
What a way to denounce the Commission at this event.
I have enemies in that Commission and this would be a great show down!
I showed up around 11:30am and walked right in the conference room.
They were nice as pie to me!!!! They even invited to have lunch!
But I quickly learned that as a journalist I had to bite my tongue BIG TIME!!!!! < My tongue still hurts!!! >
They were talking about mental disabilities and these are the same people who told the Government that once a child takes Ritalin?
He or she will be labeled to close to mental retardation as an adult!!!
I had to remain silent and it almost killed me!!!
I went around the room and took pictures and no one told me to leave!!!
ARRGGG . . . I wasted my energy in waiting a good showdown!!!!
Lately, I can go in these events and no one bothers me. There’s no showdown!!!! I hate it!!!!..lol
Here’s some pictures -
As in past practice, I would sneak my way towards the group.
I was surprise because it was a couple of students from the Journalism class at St.Thomas.
One of the student asked me - What would you say if I didn’t wish to have my picture on your blog?
I quickly replied - Well? I love taking pictures of the media behind the scenes.
They join the gang at a very early stage –

They sounded like a couple of good future journalists.
