If this is the face of Cobourg’s future we are in good hands!

This was the scene yesterday afternoon in the Town of Cobourg. Upwards of 700 people marched, and some stayed in Victoria Park, to demonstrate against Police Brutality.

The fact that the majority of marchers appeared to be much much younger than me lifts my soul. Just how many of these wonderful youth will stay in Cobourg we do not know but even if only a few remain they should infect this Town with the energy needed to invigorate the place.

For a fuller report and a video seven minutes long visit “Northumberland Today”. I had a problem with the interview video when the reporter asked twice, of a young woman, “What do you think about the killing of Police Officers?” Hey Pete the demo was about police officers brutalising and killing minorities, easy to see your bias here!

    Once we were the future

    So Wally isn’t the only one who’s reminded of the summer of ’68. And Ben, I share your joy at finally seeing some of the youngsters rising up at last. My oldest grand girl’s partner is busy radicalizing the patrons at Kitchener Public Library where she works, I’m enjoying seeing her posts very much. University towns seem to be fertile soil for dissent.

    It looks like there is still hope for our liberation after all.
