  1. I sure hope the creator can whisper a message in Dalton’s ear….the sooner the better, before any more communities are fractured, habitat is destroyed and people’s health is jeopardized.
    Keep praying!

    • In order for McSquinty to hear the creater, he needs ears and a processing centre (brain) He has neither, as a matter of fact an earthworm comes to mind. Hope I didn’t insult those little critters lol

  2. I hope the First Nations will be in Toronto tomorrow with their drums it would add a great deal.

  3. Wow. Much like at the beginning of our Zephyr protest in Watford this spring- a flock of tundra swans flew overhead… a month early… protesting with us.
    Good on you Manitoulin– keep your island beautiful and clean!
