When the Conservative Party of Canada met last week for their Convention in Ottawa, Police cordoned off a city street so protesters could have their say. The along came the Canadian Taxpayers Federation and their debt clock. The clock has been on the Canadian political scene for twenty years, and was pulled out of storage last year, yet the only thing that has blown up in that time is government spending.
So when Conservative delegates reported the clock as a “suspicious vehicle,” Ottawa Police naturally did what the RCMP did back in March, when the clock made a visit to Parliament Hill, they prevented it going about it’s useful business. Ottawa Police detained the clock, and CTF staff while they investigated the suspicious horse trailer with numbers. Police were able to determine that the large numbers, counting upwards, where not a detonating device, but not without calling in the bomb squad.
Watch the CTF’s video of the morons of the Ottawa Police force violating the charter rights of CTF staff below:
If you have a blog of your own, get some suspicious numbers to put on your sidebar:
