Before heading over to the Israel Consulate Gary McHale (photo right) – ‘The Caledonia Crusader’ (as dubbed by SUN TV’s David Menzies) – recorded a session for the Brian Lilley show yesterday w/Menzies to talk about the recent decision by the Supreme Court of Canada to affirm racial justice as the law of the land, thereby devaluing the lives of victims of crime – native and non-Native – when they and their communities are victimized by repeat native offenders.

When the JDL folks found out that Caledonia hero Merlyn Kinrade had made the long trip to stand with them despite feeling unwell from the cancer growing inside him, they honoured him by giving him an Israel flag, and with a special ‘Mi Sheberach’ prayer for the sick during their reading from the Torah. You can see a picture of Merlyn and me with our UN blue berets, and read the prayer here:
