I saw your post (via questioning covid) and thought I’d respond. I don’t really know anyone in the group, and since you brought up ‘poor communication’, I’ll tell you what happened. It’s no big deal but still …

I took a bundle of Drudgers and hit the Ford City businesses. The store owners were all really great (except one store), and were happy to carry small piles of Drudgers in their stores/restaurant/bar. The ppl I talked to didn’t know about Stand-up Windsor, or Chris Sky, or about any of the rallies by the river.

Anyway, 2 storeowners (Kat from Pretty Baked and possibly Michael from Reclaimed Artistry) were interested in speaking at the rally on Sept 18. They would be strong community voices and offer a collective support. Since I don’t know how you set speakers up, I told them I’d get back to them with info. I sent messages to Currie (I didn’t know who else to contact) in different ways, mentioning their names and could they speak. I never got a response. I know things are super busy and my mssgs probably got buried by the hundreds of others, but I felt bad about not being able to get back to Kat and Michael with an answer.

In the end, I don’t know if Kat or Michael got a spot, because I had to go out of town the day of the rally. But I agree, having small communities like Ford City Business join the movement is a good thing, and so’s good communication.

About me: I moved to Windsor a few months ago and have been to several of your rallies, which are great. My father was Eastern European, he escaped Communism, and I have a book out on Stalin, so, I’ve been pretty stressed out over all this for some time. Emma

Hi Eno/Emma!

I'm glad to see another Windsorite here.

Sorry I didn't respond sooner. I've been having technical issues with my SaidIt messages this month, and only just discovered they weren't all resolved. So I have to discover responses to my posts manually for this month. Any responses to my comments (like this one) will go direct to my messages.

I sent messages to Currie [...] I never got a response.

Sorry to hear that. She's not only overwhelmed and not delegating well, she may pre-judge your activism. IMO, we need to welcome all voices and have all voices weigh in on what is or is not acceptable in general for our groups. Some of us are working on better flexible frameworks.

and have been to several of your rallies, which are great.

Please find me (I'm hard to miss) and we can talk to Currie and find some solutions for you and the Ford City Businesses.

I live at Riverside and Pillette and I walk down Riverside to Oullette when I have no gear for the rallies, past Ford City. Tomorrow and maybe Thursday I'll be helping Don, Ted, and Donna clean up at 1629 Drouillard, further down from your friends.

Hi Jason, Thanks a lot for your response. I’m really stressed over Build Back Better but I’m no activist, so nothing to prejudge there. LOL.

Since I live in Ford City, I thought I’d pass around copies of Druthers to the businesses. Then it turned out some ppl were interested in speaking. It would be great if there was a way for them to contact you for info. (One person mssged your website but got no answer.)

If I go back out, it would be good to have a contact number to give out.

I may come to the rally Saturday. If I do, I’ll look for you to say hi.

Thx again!

Hi Jason, I don't really use SaidIt. There's something I'd like to ask you. Can I private mssg you somehow? - FB? Email? Thx. Emma.

Winton and I met and had a good chat today, he read this post I made, liked it, and gave me some feedback which lead to other related discussions.

In short, this post is the "cart" and I didn't even know the "horse" existed until we developed it in our discussion - so this is the cart before the horse. Today I'll draft up the horse, pitch it by Winton for more feedback, and we'll share it soon enough.

ironic that you're named for the queen's family, which is a fake name

You mean the City Of Windsor - not my name, not where I was born, nor lived until grade 7, and I've certainly lived a lot of other places since then (more than most folks). It's where I live now by happenstance and I had nothing to do with the origins of nor naming of this city. It's not not my favourite or my least favourite, but it is now my home with all the pros and cons that come with any place. With the uncertain future under globalist tyranny, and because big pharma already destroyed my life and career, I've accepted that it's likely that I'll grow old and die in this swell town, resisting all the way.

Like many larger cities, Windsor, Ontario originally had different names and many growing towns have merged under centralized management and control. Among the many communities, " Windsor was incorporated as a village in 1854, became a town in 1858, and gained city status in 1892. " It was named after Windsor, Berkshire. Windsor, is also the name of many other cities, towns, villages, people, titles, fashions, structures, transport, etc.

As for the phony Queen's name - the House of Windsor, " is the reigning royal house of the United Kingdom and the other Commonwealth realms. In 1901, the House of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha (a branch of the House of Wettin) succeeded the House of Hanover to the British monarchy with the accession of King Edward VII, son of Queen Victoria and Prince Albert of Saxe-Coburg and Gotha. In 1917, the name of the royal house was changed from the anglicised German Saxe-Coburg and Gotha to the English Windsor because of anti-German sentiment in the United Kingdom during World War I. There have been four British monarchs of the House of Windsor since then: George V, Edward VIII, George VI, and Elizabeth II. "

As a figurehead of the establishment, everything her family does is considered "legitimate", so I don't know if the name is fake so much as changed. There are far more severe crimes her family and establishment are responsible for than not being "authentic" Brits.

I'm not sure why you think it's ironic. Is it because you think I'm fake or a truth-seeker? Is it ironic because we're subjects / "slaves" of the Queen that are resisting her?

tldr but it's the name of the royal family after they changed it, you guys have it as the name of your town or whatever because your slaves to the royal family, canada is part of the commonwealth

But, but, but...

Your astounding ignorance is compounded when I've kindly briefly corrected your bullshit spam on my post yet you can't even be bothered to read it and instead you'd rather double down to prove yourself obstinately exceptionally ignorant.

Don't come at truth-seekers smarter than you with sad stupid bullshit, misinfo, and lies. Don't be a "but"-head. Read the the fucking comment and shut the fuck up. Popper, I know you can do better, you simply have to try.

You could apologize instead of being an asshole to my local community, and me, in front of them.

calm down hoss

When there's no indication that I'm up tight, it's messed up to tell me to settle down or calm down - and doubling down on your trolling bullshit makes you twice as shitty. Shape up, wise up, and make up by apologizing - or just fuck off and leave this sub alone.
