The black bloc are NOT protesters

REPEAT: THE BLACK BLOC ARE NOT PROTESTERS. I’m listening to the CBC and they keep saying it, over and over. They are hoodlums and thugs. As Miller said, they are criminals.

Okay. Moving right along to more important things. The mangoes this month are beyond heaven; I just picked 20 fat raspberries and 12 cherry tomatoes from my garden and watched a butterfly sipping rainwater from the clematis. The riches of planet earth; beautiful living things.
That the real protesters are trying to protect.
Help – I can’t stop!!!
