The London Tea Party

The Facebook Event description for an "S.O.S. (Stop Over-Spending) Party" planned for October 3 at Reg Cooper Square, behind City Hall in London, ON:

Inspired by the success of the TEA Parties in the United States, it's time for Londoners -- and all Canadians -- to take a stand in the Forest City against the mismanagement of our money at any level of government, and inform Canadians on what the bureaucrats are really doing with our money.

Come and join the Forest City Institute in Reg Cooper Square for music, great speakers, and a rally against high taxes, and tell the government to stop over-spending.

Much like Sting and the Police several years ago, it's time to send an SOS to the world, and you can too by writing your note to city council and sticking it into the FCI bottle. The week after it'll be marched right into the city clerk's office!

So far, the announced speakers are FCI employee and conservative activist Andrew Lawton, former Tory candidate and FCI board member Mary Lou Ambrogio and the Queen of the Canadian right-blogosphere Kathy Shaidle, with more soon to join their ranks, the Forest City Institute says

Thanks for the SHOTGUN BLOG heads up Kalim!
MSM won't touch the story!

I personally have made known to many Canadian corporate MSM and their journalists, about the American style TEA PARTY protest in the heart of southern Ontario, London, Ontario.
As a matter of fact Bill O'Reilly, Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, Michelle Malkin and Drudge Report are also aware of the morphing of the tax protesting TEA PARTIES into Canada, albeit the first one in London.

Come and join us in London on Saturday October 3.
The London Free Press may even see fit to cover the tax protest for their beleagured readers.
All three levels of Canadain governance, take heed!!!

Only for the dogmatic collectivists/progressives is there no story, as dissent must be ignored and/or eliminated.
