Ms Soapbox is under the weather, as such there will be no blog post today.
I expect to be fully functional next week, at least physically. It will take longer than that to restore my mental equilibrium given the ongoing mismanagement of the occupation of Ottawa, the blockade at Coutts, and the apparent inability or unwillingness of the police to disperse the illegal protesters creating havoc in our towns and cities.
What happens if the police who have a duty to enforce the laws refuse to do so?
And what happens if politicians are so afraid of upsetting those who support the illegal protests that the best they can muster is a mild request suggesting the illegal protesters leave?
And what happens if the illegal protesters refuse to leave?
We all know the answer.
The people lose trust in the institutions designed to preserve peace, order and good government in Canadian society.
My heart is breaking. It should never have come to this.
