Since that time I have regularly been putting up posters on my member of parliaments office when they are closed as well as putting them up on telephone poles around town. (200 at a time).
My MP, James (Jimbo) Lunney, has a main office is in Nanaimo but he also has a small ‘satellite’ office (beside the downtown post office) here in Port Alberni that’s only open two days a week; Tuesdays and Thursdays.
A poster put up Thursday night would sometimes stay up until Tuesday morning. Over the last two weeks tho’ I have noticed posters sometimes only stay up 24-48 hours.
This morning I was driving down to mail a letter as well as exercise and enjoy my right to free speech. I got out of my car, walked up the steps and dropped my letter in the big red box and as I turned back to my car to get my posters and sidewalk chalk, there was Jimbo himself pulling up. He didn’t get out of his car and I pretended not to notice him and got back in my vehicle. As I was backing out he did the same and left – so I just went around the block, and proceeded to poster his office and chalk up the sidewalk. This is on a Sunday folks!!
What this really tells me is constant and continued postering of conservative MP’s office windows & sidewalk chalk pro marijuana messages after hours and on weekends is really starting to, well…….taste like piss perhaps?
Activism can be fun…
