Rebel without a brain

Canada's own version of Ismail Haniyeh is still making vague threats about disrupting "something or other" this holiday weekend.

-- DESERONTO, ONT. -- Mohawk protester Shawn Brant has emerged as a lonesome voice of hard-line native militancy, plotting major economic disruption as his way of making Canada sit up and listen.

Any move Friday to block thousands of commuters on Highway 401 or the CN rail line will depend on last-minute circumstances, police presence and safety issues, Mr. Brant said.

"We're going to have that expression of strength and solidarity across this country," he said in an interview at the quarry he occupied on disputed land last March near Deseronto, west of Kingston.

"Then we'll step back and say: 'You absorb this.' Because the next time we come out, it's going to be harder, it's going to be longer and it's going to have an impact on this economy that Canada can't imagine at this point.

"We've had enough."
Well Shawn, apart from the sexual imagery... you took the words right out of my mouth.

My guess is though, that Dalton McGuinty will let this one, whatever it turns out to be, slide too.

Which can only help the Conservative's chances in the coming Ontario elections.

So bring it on, baby.

A little short term pain will be worth the gain.


UPDATE: Kingston Mohawks want in
We encourage the participation of as many people as possible, in as many ways as possible.

Some people may choose set up lawn chairs and “relax on the tracks,” while others may choose to stand by the side of the road and pass out pamphlets and refreshments to motorists.

the opp down here should ask for a long weekend loan of the toronto public order unit... it's not like they use it anyway these days.

All is well gents, the Rgt Hon Paul Martin has come out and advised that this protest would be against their best interest. I'm sure the Mohawks will listen to Paul. Just incase they don't though, I'm heading North on the 62 this weekend.

No point in calling Toronto law and order unit. They were in Caledonia last summer and left when the found out they were there to face down the residents not the illegal occupiers.

Shawn Brant, 'Rebel Without a Brain.'

Hmmmm. Give the person who runs your title department a raise. Wish I'd thought of it!
