The squally nature to the incoming of May was matched only by the exuberance of the great news simultaneously taking place. Most notably from our neck of the woods in Mississauga is that the mayoral race is on! There was a freedom for speech rally that took place over the weekend in the UK that effects us. And Canadians all over the nation are headed out to march in protest against the Liberals.
Thousands gathered in London's famous Speakers Corner over the weekend to hear some amazing people exercise their rights for freedom of speech at the #DayForFreedom event. Tommy Robinson, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes and Lauren Southern were just a few of the powerful presenters at this event.
Canadian Lauren Southern has been banned from entering the UK and labelled alt-right, so the organizers streamed her message to us via a large video screen. The importance of free speach is beautifully ilustrated when we hear Lauren's inspiring message. Cameras panned the crowds as many appeared choked up with tears of pride celebrating western virtues together. It was incredibly moving. To hear Lauren watch the following: https://youtu.be/sFiMRdZEVLk
Tommy took a moment and acknowledged the mastermind group who made it all happen in a brief introduction, bringing them up on stage. It was a truly humbling moment and illustrated why people follow and admire his leadership. Milo was his usual self triggering everyone and doing it with such humour and finesse. And Gavin always makes us Canadians proud, or at the very least, translates British wit perfectly for those who appreciate that sort of thing.
The best news is the mayor race in Mississauga is underway. So far we have two candidates. One appears to be open to discussing and answering the questions Mississauga voters really want to ask and one is more guarded. Let's follow upcoming messages and debates from both as well as keeping an eye out for others who still have time to become a candidate and may apply.
