Alberta Legislature PRESS PASS PICKET 80 Days
Day 79: Quick draw in the back parking lot of the Alberta Legislature while picketing for a press pass. A CBC reporter took a photo of my news poster after I completed it. Several MLAs and many in the general public enjoyed the context of my news poster relating to News Item: Notley says Alberta will buy rail cars to move oil, wants Ottawa to chip in - CBC.

I'll continue calling on my Government and opposition parties of Alberta to remove obstacles that infringe on the rights and freedoms of Canadians who live by democracy and not the corporatocracy of the news media that presides over our individual rights and freedoms inside our Alberta Legislature.

Global and CBC reporters watched, one reporter is seen laughing during the assault. I contacted the Edmonton police service later this day and they suggested I take this up with Canadian Press first. More soon

November 16, 2018: The Edmonton police service confirmed I was assaulted by the Canadian Press reporter Dean Bennett. I decided not to lay charges. The Edmonton police service gave a warning to Canadian Press instead. Today 630 CHED radio talk show host Ryan Jespersen was having a round table discussion with reporters, talking about on the increase of hate and lack of respect towards the news media in Canada and around the world. At one point Jespersen told his guests and listening audience that he won't turn the cheek if he was slapped in the face...
