 I love it Sonny.

I wonder what would happen it you demonstrated by the park gates when the skiers from Marmot are going home?

Wait. you would need news coverage for that.

By Golly, your town still is known for being the Wild Bunch. Good on you Boys.

Now where is my yellow vest, I do have one.  Need to hang it up by the door just to be ready.

https://www.foxnews.com/world/french-yellow-vest-protesters-tear-gassed-in-violent-clashes-with-riot-police-in-paris

"We are not here to destroy Paris, we are here to tell Macron we are f--king fed up," said one protester before the clashes with the police began, adding that the people are protesting ever-increasing taxes on the working class.

That f''n Macron idiot is Trudeau's hero. 
But you know, it wasn't long ago that the French people elected that make-up wearing little Fem.  They were so scared of Conservative,Marine Le Pen.  She was touted as the Donald Trump of France.  Well, they are getting what they voted for.  Same going on here in Canada.

I would say they were southern BC people because the northern folk are pretty awesome people, no different than being in Nisku when your up north.

Had a little showing in cold lake today as well, I'd say about 30 people were out. Kind of pointless in Cold Lake though lol, like no shit we all support the oil industry, oh well still good to see people making a point.

Oh yes I have.  They still hide out at the top of the east hill, and just below that hill before the Parks Gate.  They just have yellow legs these days, and have GRC (Gravel Road Cop) written on the cruiser.

I am just too old too change a favourite term of a bunch of geezers who used to drive the then Death Highway of Alberta.

Highway 63 has now taken over that term. "Pray for Me, I drive 63.

Today’s yellow vest rally in Hinton only had four of us show up but the response from the people driving by was great. Lots of honking and waving going on.
 Also had folks stopping by and giving us coffees. :) :)
