Kim Jong-il communication

To the editor,

This letter is in response to David Prior's sarcastic letter, "Crowd control" (November 2), regarding the police presence at the October 28 rally protesting Canada's involvement in Afghanistan. I regret to say that I'm unmoved.

I suppose that his brain has been clouded by the common fantasy that Canada is a country where the police are actually used to suppress protestors, because I didn't see anything of the sort. The copious number of club- and chemical weapon-wielding brown shirts he claims he saw were actually no more than a few officers who had been justifiably dispatched. While the potential for trouble was admittedly minute, I'm glad to see the HRM is proactive in protecting its people and property.

To Mr. Prior, if I've crushed your youthful dreams of struggle against the repressive state, don't despair. There's always North Korea.
