parked at the entrance; I was also lucky enough to see, in the dark, an individual walking by said shitbox, wearing a dark jacket with the word "SECURITY" emblazoned in white on the back so, at this point, I think we can all safely conclude that TUPOC has moved in for good, and they are not interested in any company or community engagement or your opinion; what they want is a base of operations for further mischief and mayhem.
More disturbing are the rumours that Canada's white nationalists are planning another invasion of Ottawa the weekend of September 10-11, and I'm sure it's just the most glorious of coincidences that that is the same weekend of the Conservative Party of Canada's leadership convention, where insurrection and violence fan boi Pierre Poilievre hopes to land the top job in Canada's fascist party. (No, not the PPC, the other fascist party.)
So, prediction: TUPOC's "Embassy" on St. Patrick St. will become more locked down and militarized over the next few weeks, culminating in a full-blown occupation come that weekend in September. I'd love to be proven wrong but, sadly, I have an annoying reputation for calling this stuff.
A MODEST PROPOSAL: While TUPOC refers to their home base as their "Embassy," if we could all start describing it as their "military compound," that'd be great, thanks.
P.P.S. I predict security fencing by the end of August. Let's watch.
