I wrote this blog a few months ago!!!

Some people might be angry with me after this little blog then so be it.
The T.J. Burke issue really hit a nerve with me.
I told someone Saturday morning that this was all F@ . . . Bullsh@t!!!
< Excuse my language! >
I just couldn’t believe the Irvings would scoop so low to degrade a politician?
Now, I guess the story is that T.J. Burke had a fist fight in a bar. < No big surprise! > I had my share of fights in the bar in my lifetime. It's no big deal!!!
He pleaded guilty and that was that!
It was a minor offence and he moved on.
There’s another politician that I blogged on a few occasions < Many didn’t agree that I should blog it > and it was about Carl White.
He’s a councillor for the City of Saint John and the only case worker of the New Brunswick Human Rights Commission in the Southern part of the Province.
I had a very strong case against Gulf Operators < Irving Company > This very racist company had a supervisor name Brian Grant.
He told his employees - If I owned this Empire? There would be no Niggers or Frogs working here. Why do the States have the Niggers and Canada have the Frogs? They had first choice!!!..ha.ha.ha...
I’m not sure but I believe this is pure RACISM!!!!
This very racial atmosphere lasted for months.
After my fall in with the Racists Management?
I decided to put a complaint with Carl White.
I won’t go into the details of the whole story.
Anyway, I was supposed to have the verdict from Carl White on a Friday but he wasn’t at work so I called the guy over his house.
Guess what? He hung up on me and told me not to phone his house again.
Well? Especially him at the time being the Deputy Mayor?
A black guy who supports Racism? Sorry but something is very fishy here?
Ok . . . I began asking around about Carl White and I soon found out there were more people from the Black Population who couldn’t stand the guy.
Then one day, I was told that he was convicted in a court of law.
The story is that he stole from Stresscom < Irving company >
So? A convicted thief as a politician and to make it worst? He’s the only individual who takes cases of human rights Cases in the Southern Part of the Province.
There has never been a Human Rights Complaint accepted against the Irvings!!! I wonder why? < I’ll let you make your own judgement >
Would you be comfortable having a convict thief serving as a Civil Servant and a politician?
How come the Irvings don’t cover Carl White?
Because he’s black????? Give me a break!
Just for the record? I’m not a big fan of T.J.Burke. I had my confrontations with the Native MLA and I believe that we have both learned to debate and move on.
The bottom line of this blog?
If the Irvings wish to act like the National Enquirer?
They should treat all politcians equally!!!!
Why did the Irvings go after T.J.Burke????
The Irvings used this section to go against their enemies
The sad part is that New Brunswickers are not allow to write back!
The Irving papers are moving towards the style of the National Enquirer and this is very scary stuff!!!!!!
I’m not a great fan of Terry Totten but I have to side with the Saint John City Manager Terry Totten in this one.
Jamie Irving have decided to crucify this guy?
I wonder why?
The Irving paper is quickly changing into the National Enquirer and people should be concern.
If we had a Radio Talk show to condemn the Irvings? They would soon back off!!! Saint Johners sure miss their CFBC TALK OF THE TOWN!!!
But New Brunswickers don’t have a voice.
The only true newscaster is the CBC!!!! < Sorry Spinks >
Other media organizations don’t have the resources to investigate issues like the Irvings.
There’s a protest set for tomorrow at noon in Saint John and people should be there in numbers.
But they won’t because many people are still afraid to be on the Irving’s blacklist!!!
If you’re on that list? You could be in big trouble and be force to leave New Brunswick with your family.
Very sad indeed.
Here’s a blog I wrote in January from last year-

Am I pissed???? You darn right I am!!! I learned late this afternoon on CBC that Josh Beutel was force out the door by the Irvings.
Who’s Josh Beutel you may ask?
He’s just the best political cartoonist in New Brunswick.
As a matter of fact? He could be the only one?
I quickly made a few phone calls and this is what I’m told.
Jamie Irving ordered Josh to do political cartoons on the daily editorial < Irving way > only!
He wasn’t allowed to do his own work.
Just like this one he did a few months ago about the friends of Rockwood Park.
This is pure dictatorship! But then again? This doesn’t surprise me because he was truly the last freedom of speech left in the Irving papers.
It’s all part of the final solution in New Brunswick by the Irvings.
Take a look how the Irvings have changed their style to brainwash the readers via their newspapers?
It all started when Peter Haggert came from Ontario and took over the Telegraph Journal.
He told me via a phone that no critical letters of the Irvings will be printed in the Irving papers. I told the Canadian Senate about this issue.
The only reason he phoned me is because I made a complaint to the Atlantic Press Council.
This group doesn’t exist any longer. I believe the Irvings got rid of the Press Council.
During the summer of 2003 Peter Haggert wrote a column telling the public that from this day on? Only one letter per month will be printed by a writer on any issue.
Three weeks later, the Irvings close the shipyard and the regular writers had their say and that was the end of that.
But the editor told the regular writers that it was old news.
Then came the famous donation of one million dollars to Saint-Thomas University. < Journalism course >
The Irvings will train their future soldiers ...oppss I mean future journalists to follow the Irving’s way!
If these journalists dare to write or investigate the Irvings?
They will be fired right on the spot! Therefore, since the Irvings owns all the newspapers in this Province. These young journalists will be force out of the Province.
The Irvings had to take care of the HERE Paper because it was beginning to be very critical of the Irving Empire.
They bought the paper and ordered in their soldiers...opppsss I mean journalists in their place.
The Irvings even played a role in cancelling the talk show CFBC talk of the town.
They will crucify in their editorial anyone who doesn’t follow the Irving’s way.
Took a look at my trial in Saint John? I wrote a letter complaining of their tactic but it was never printed.
Democracy is truly dead in New Brunswick and there’s absolutely nothing we can do.
I will send a letter to the Senate asking for an investigation but it will be a total waste of time.
As for Josh Beutel?
Well, being a person who loves to give his views on issues? He sure can email me his work and I’ll blog it! It doesn’t pay one single cent but his message will be out there for his fans...lol
Just for the record? He’s the one who made this funny piece of work which became my trademark.
I was surprised that the Irvings printed his piece of work of me being ban from the Legislature.
Regular readers of the Irving paper will say- Ohhh??? This is not bad because we will still read the views of Greg Perry < political cartoonist > but there’s only one itty bitty problem?
This good cartoonist is from Halifax!!!
He phones the Irvings < Jamie Irving > and they tell him what to do?
Sorry that’s not Josh’s style. He likes to do it his own way!
As one idiot told me this evening? If you work for a person and get paid? Therefore, you should follow the boss orders!!!
Boy? Did I ever went over that guy!
THIS IS SUPPOSE TO BE A NEWSPAPER NOT A REGULAR WORKPLACE!!!!!!
It’s supposed to be a place where the citizens have a say!
Many of you readers get very upset when I use this picture -
But really? Beside not executing the people? Is there really a difference?
When Hitler took control of Germany? He took control of the media and we all know what happen?
What can New Brunswickers do?
They have to good underground.
What happen to Josh Beutel should concern everyone in this Province and the Senate should investigate this issue!
Freedom of speech is OFFICIALLY dead in New Brunswick!
