U of Guelph students continue to attack Gen. Hiller

These photos just in from my contacts at the U of Guelph... even after their vicious article attacking retired Gen. Rick Hiller was removed from the UofG's website thecannon.ca (the replacement note from the operating committee is rather interesting, posted below), a small group of extremist students at the University are continuing their personal attacks on Mr. Hiller, subjecting the institution to further shame and criticism, such as David Akin's public and scathing one from late last week.

It seems a group of students have just unfurled this banner in the U of Guelph's student commons...


But I'd like to draw your attention to the following photo, because it appears my contacts have identified one of the other masterminds behind this shameful display... former Guelph Communist candidate Drew Garvie.



My contacts have let me know that instead of just letting this issue go, the group responsible for these disgusting attacks on the General are continuing their vicious attacks by reading their pulled article in public over a megaphone. Guess it's a good thing I posted the original article in full.
REPLACEMENT POSTING AT THECANNON.CA

Editorial: Rick Hillier Editorial
by The Cannon Operating Committee

Jan 11, 2009 - The Rick Hillier editorial written by Scott Gilbert and posted on The Cannon Friday, January 9 has been removed while The Cannon operating committee investigates its appropriateness. As with other writing that appears on this website, this editorial does not necessarily reflect the opinions of the Central Student Association and the Guelph Campus Co-op who jointly administer The Cannon.
UPDATE: Well I've obviously got the attention of the protesters at the UofG... some interesting Google searches wound their way to my blog this afternoon.

Hey guys... sup.

    Is it just me, or does any one else find a person who purports a communist view being against war rather ironic in light of the history of communism being established and maintained by force of arms?

    An interesting aside, if one looks are their current poll, "do you support the Israeli invasion of Palestine", it seems that 85% of their visit do support it.

    Excellent!

    Democracy means the ignorant get to speak too! Funny...the poorly fabricated bed sheet reads, Hillier go Home....its almost like they thought he wasnt a Canadian.
    They must have missed that day.

    Rileysowner,

    There is lots of irony here as regards the two communist editors of the cannon, tweedle-dumb- Gilbert and tweedle-dee-Garvie. Although they purport to be against militarism, they both appropriate a WW1 cannon as their symbol and in an effort to recruit writers, they borrow from the military again. Here's an example from their home page: "Help us to load the cannon. Write. Shoot. Contribute." these are war/fighting words and a cannon is a symbol of violent conflict. I think that reveals just how unpeaceful and unoriginal the cannon and it's staff really are.
