    Your comment sums things up completely. I really don't think there is anything else I can say in this thread. I'm bowing out with this comment, it's spot on.

    I have watched this video 2 times, I don't see this being any where close to peaceful, and I also can see that it was edited in some way. I personally think that more then one person should have been arrested. There is no way any one should be screaming in anyone's face at any time. If they want respect then they could have respectfully asked for the name tag, I seen there was one man with a beard who was talking to the cop and the cop pointed out his name tag, He showed the cop respect and he got respect in return.

    Is there some reason why my posts were deleted? Would prefer to be notified before that happens again.

    So conclude as you will from the following article.
    I'll have to ask my friend who works for the CBC. Of course, if things were so strict with the new code of conduct, I would have heard an earfull (she's not a Tory ).

    Yep, the ruling party rules the media...even if they get slammed in the papers/news/radio every day.

People get angrier when they see police with no ID and refusing to ID themselves. The charges against Derek will be dropped because they are bogus.
    Maybe I'm missing something? I find it highly unnerving that folks are protesting in the middle of the street with cars going around them. No, it's not a riot, but playing in traffic is never a good idea (& this is long before the gentleman is arrested).

    First, we weren't playing in traffic, we were protesting Second, the charge of inciting a riot is heavy and carries a heavy consequence and it's clearly not what was happening here. Charge him with Jaywalking or find a comparable charge of being in the street but don't trump charges up for inciting a riot. And since he wasn't the only person in the street if these "police" were being just and fair they either would have arrested everyone or no one at all.

    Good point. My tongue-in-cheek observation is that it has seemed to me for decades that the CBC is biased in favour of whatever party the accuser doesn't like! They are regularly accused of being pro-Conservative, pro-Liberal and pro-NDP....and often all on the same day.

    ...From what I've always heard, cbc is liberal biased. This is the first I've seen them being accused of Conservative bias.

    perhaps it was because you were being rude in parts of your posts telling ppl what to do ...this is not permitted on SC

    Insulting or attacking another SmartCanucks member = BAN

    I am not being rude towards you ...your posts were reported and I am telling you why.

    The mods have the right to remove posts that they seem not suitable for SC. SC is not a government run forum, and the owner and mods have the discretion to remove posts.

    From Boo...
    "If you directly or indirectly, explicitly or implicitly attack, insult, mock, moderate or tell another Smartcanucks member what to do or not do while naming them or not mentioning their name in the Rants section or any other section on SmartCanucks you will be banned period.

    No second chances... no warnings.... learn to be respectful and polite... life is too short to be rude to others.

    We don't want negative people on Smartcanucks. We pride ourselves on being a positive stress free community and we want to remain that way. If you want the drama and negativity there are loads of other forums out there geared to your desires."

    Not to tell you to do your job but perhaps you should inform a new person of that and not just delete them? It's very unwelcoming.

    A private message board does not equal the govt...

    A private message board like this can have as many rules regarding what is and isn't posted as they like . and the admins/mods can define and redefine those rules as circumstances allow.

    And you just did the same, so shouldn't you be reported as well? (I'm aware you're a Mod but you are seemingly like the police in this case)... I didn't TELL anyone what to do, I wasn't the one being rude, obviously. I was pointing out that people are bullying this poor girl over something that has nothing to do with the question.

    Methinks perhaps SC is undergoing a technical glitch. I can view the last page if I'm logged out, but not if I'm logged in? I also tried to post, saw the post, refreshed & it was gone, reposted & it was there.

    Maybe someone's telling me it's time to go to bed?

    Hope everyone has a good night.
