Thank You Dan !!

Hi Dan,

Thanks for holding your head high, and not being afraid to speak out about these agents provacateurs of the Harper Regime.  Ultimately the Dictator Harper must take responsibility for his undercover stooges and the intimidation tacics you are being subjected to. 

Every Blogger and every activist in Canada needs to be aware of your persecution and join the resistance to this injustice.

These lowlife undercover agents provacateurs must be stopped and held accountable.

They are an insult and a danger that threatens to undermine our legal right to exercise our fundamental freedoms. without government interference.

These dickcheeze  pigs suck and they make me sick. They should move to North Korea where they would fit in better.

... is a website in the US that keeps track of such things, have never been pursued for posting info on such things (they've even got posts on two SW Ontario undercovers from back in the summer last year)
