  1. What a day!…exceptional work!…..MSM…documentary (Ill Wind ) ,students writing about the subject….. a few politicians… Stephana……so much more…..could not have asked for much more and it was all from our point of view………..tired…bed time!….thanks Lorrie

  2. Thanks Lorrie, it was a great day supporting each other. I would like to think we got the message out, I hope at least a few more were given something to think about. Main stream media continues to say little about this issue.Thank goodness for Sun News & Sun Media they are in my opinion the only places you ever find much truth or coverage. A big THANK YOU to them. Premier Dad is sill saying he is listening and we have a choice. What a joke!!

  3. That looks likeChatham-Kent Mayor Randy Hope(less) and Diane Zimmerman of Suncor spinning around together on that protester’s turbine?? Do tell…are they in bed together… so to speak?????
