I doubt this would have happened if it had been a police funeral

Had to find it on a Brit news line - not well covered in Canada.

Outrage as military veteran escorting the body of a dead soldier on Remembrance Day was given a TICKET in the middle of the funeral procession


A Canadian military veteran who was dutifully escorting the body of a dead soldier during a funeral procession was outraged after police pulled her over and gave her a ticket.

Debbi Ferguson was stopped by an officer from Victoria Police during the somber procession to lay Private Steven Allen to rest on Remembrance Day in Victoria, Canada.

The 20-year military veteran said that her first thought when the officer pulled in behind her and flashed his lights was that he was going to help the motorcade.

But she was stunned when he issued her with a ticket for $230.

She said: ‘We were already in an emotional state and it was Remembrance Day.

'It was hard on all of us veterans and soldiers that a fellow man at arms would pull me over and pull me out of this escort.’

She said that her car had a flag at half mast on it and her four-way flashers were on, so there was no way that police officer did not realize that her car was a part of the procession.

She said: ‘He shouted out on his microphone to pull over immediately. We were just in shock.’

Ferguson told the officer that they were taking part in a funeral procession.

But he shot back that he didn't care, went to his car, and came back with the ticket.

She said: ‘I looked at him and I'm like I am sorry this is most disrespectful thing I have seen anyone do.’

Victoria police said Ferguson was given the ticket because her 'license plate was obstructed.'

The dead soldier, Allen, died during a military training exercise in Alberta, Canada. The military procession was taking his body from the airport to a funeral home.

Meanwhile, Ferguson said that she was only trying to follow strict military codes which state that no soldier is left behind.

She told CBC Victoria: ‘We never leave anyone behind and we never let a soldier come home alone.’

A spokesperson for Victoria Police said in a statement that the action of its officer was ‘regrettable.’

‘We recognize that this report of a ticket being issued to fellow community members volunteering their time to see a compatriot home is regrettable.

'This is especially true on a day when many members of our community, including many VicPD officers, were paying our own respects to the fallen.’

Unbelievable! If that happened in the US, it would just be part of Obama's Civilian National Security force, greater than the military, flexing their dear leaders "muscles".

Interesting times ahead.

MONTREAL - The Liberal Party convention this weekend in Montreal has a distinctly American flavour.

No less than four senior officials who worked with U.S. President Barack Obama before and after his 2012 re-election campaign were scheduled to speak at the convention.

Liberals said the party admired the effectiveness of the Democratic machine to mobilize supporters using technology and teams of local organizers.

Former economic adviser to Obama, Lawrence Summers, kicked off the convention with a short talk about world finance, before Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau took the stage Thursday night.

Ryan Adam, a senior organizer for Obama's 2012 re-election campaign, gave a "grassroots mobilization" workshop with delegates Friday morning.

Jennifer O'Malley Dillon, former deputy campaign manager for Obama in 2012, spoke on Friday and was scheduled to give another presentation on Saturday.

And the digital director for Obama in 2012, Teddy Goff, was scheduled to speak on Saturday.

Let me see - United States President Oblunder

Hmmm....

Eerily similar to future Canadian Prime Minister TruDope

Somehow I think Canada is going to get a serious spanking when the new Prime Minister is elected and the doors to the worlds underprivileged open and they begin entering at a "speed of light" rate.

This convention in the teat sucking province of kebec is just one example - then we have the US Prez hoards coming forward to provide talks, ideas and advice on how to make Canada even more liberal.

See what you guys have started?

Now it seems it is our turn.

As I stated once already - Pray for us - we will need it.

Internet rumor and Obama's mothers travels... indicate obama was born in Canada..

What was Ann Dunham, at age 18, doing at Mercer Island (outside of Seattle) with a newborn infant for a "brief" visit?

No one knows if Stanley Ann had arrived in Seattle from Honolulu or Mombasa. Or did she just drive cross the border from Canada?

It is possible that Dunham actually delivered Barry someplace close to Mercer Island -- like Vancouver.



The most compelling case for a Canadian birth is the age of the infant when Stanley Ann appeared at the home of her high school friend, Susan Blake shortly after Barry's birth -- unable to change little Barry's diaper.



Blake states, in this interview, that while Stanley was there she stayed with a friend of Stanley Ann's mother, even borrowed a car to come see Susan.



Was Stanley Ann's mother's friend really Stanley Ann's Aunt Eleanor?

and to top it off,.. he will soon be unemployed.. not soon enough...
