NOTICE to the Community - Native land disputes and airsoft

Folks,

After watching the news this morning, and reading the threads on ASC regarding the current Native protests taking place across Southern Ontario, I thought it might be a good idea to remind all members of the community from the Halton / Hamilton / Niagra / Caledonia ( and any other regions where Native communities are common) to excercise additional discretion when travelling to or from games or events.

In all likelihood, regional police agencies as well as the OPP and RCMP will be looking for "suspicious individuals or activity" that may be associated with the current Native protests, or any activity that may suggest an escalation by Native groups such as those observed during the 1990 Oka / Akwasasne standoff(s). Groups of young men and women in camouflage clothing seen publicly may generate unwanted attention.

Please be extra sensitive to this issue.

it's a bot that automatically finds stickied threads in forumsites, and posts their crap in them.

It's been flagged for removal

Would it really be a problem, as long as you weren't standing beside a roadblock with a black bandana over your face? Not to nit-pick, but there's common-sense, and un-necessary self-censorship & deprivation. Remember, there will ALWAYS be a crisis for the news to broadcast, and grab people's attention, ALWAYS . If you let it affect you then it becomes a problem.

I'm sure you'll be saying the same thing after youve driven past a protest, and were pulled over for wearing head to toe camo, and had all your airsoft guns siezed?

And dont tell me they dont have the right to sieze them, because we all know cops will do whatever they damn please and can get away with. In this sport, it is necessary self-censorship. Because it doesnt matter how you percieve airsoft, or yourself dressed up in camo and carrying plastic guns, it is not a socially acceptable sport as of yet, and the guys with real guns may not see it your way.

I guess I sort of understand, then. Perhaps in the future we should refer to places as 'Socialist Occupied Territory' and 'Free Canada', so that we avoid these confusions. My bad for confusing BC or Ontario with the latter
