Black Lives Blackmail

More opinion that stems from the Black Lives Matter Blackmail efforts during the pride parade of 2016. Members of Black Lives Matter obstructed the parade for half an hour until their demands were met. Their demands were the removal of Toronto Police from the parade. During the blackmail, Toronto Police did not removed the obstructers and charge them with Obstruction.

I am not terribly fond of the Toronto Police; they shoot to kill people that they donít understand.

I am equally unfond of Blackmailers.

Overall, to my mind, it doesnít say much for the bulk of the Pride organization, its members and its participants that they concede that blackmail is a valid tactic in todayís world.

Last Friday I drove to Ottawa and back to achieve several objectives, one of which was to stop in Perth, buy a postcard and mail it off to my son.

Here is a row of what nowadays would be called Townhouses just off the main street in the heart of the old town.

Here is an adjacent house, same street, same area.

I have a friend who works at a Metro store, and she is very keen on Scottish Country Dancing.

The tartan car caught my eye.

Then I read the documentation. On my way back to my car, the driver of the car was nearby. I struck up a conversation.

Perth Ontario celebrated its 200th year last year, and, I gather, made the Guinness Book of World records for the most numerous crowd in a Kilt Run. 4,500 if memory serves.

I gather too that cities around the world are now taking on the challenge of the Kilt Run.
