Since I was a kid – since this day in 1972, in fact, when I started writing a daily journal – I have always taken note of April 4, and said to myself: “April 4. Dr. King.”
Today, 46 years ago, Martin Luther King was murdered by a racist in Memphis. Dr. King was a giant of man, the one who – as I write in Fight The Right – anticipated the message at the core of the Occupy movement, among other things. While his message continues to resonate across the decades, the violence of racial hatred continues unabated, too.
It’s April 4, and so I give you some of his most remarkable speech. Surveying the pygmies who now crowd the public stage, I don’t think we will see the likes of him again.
Wow. Gauntlet, thrown. Lisa MacLeod, can you please make some defamatory allegations, just this once, and outside the privileged confines of the Legislature? Please? I’d like to see your wages garnished until the end of time, personally.
A statement by the lawyer to my friend Laura Miller, who is smart, decent and honest, and doesn’t deserve the crap being thrown at her
Given that we’re paying attention to the OPP’s mistakes, this morning, this is appropriate:
It has recently been reported that Laura Miller, a former Deputy Chief of Staff in the Ontario Government, had refused to cooperate with the Ontario Provincial Police in an ongoing investigation. The source of that information is the OPP. For the record, Laura agreed to cooperate in the investigation at all times. Laura spoke to the OPP in September before asking me to facilitate the interview. The assertion that she refused to cooperate is false.
If folks want to know more, they can contact Brian Shiller.
But the OPP’s insinuation that my friend refused to cooperate? It’s bullshit.
And it’s a really, really good one.

“Her supporters packed the church in St. James town….media coverage comparable to a star level athlete. In the political world, we hardly see such high profile media coverage.”
I’ll buy that.
