THEN AND NOW

In 1963 when I was a grassroot, a Tory born and bred, I travelled with a student and his father by car quite a ways from one evening.

The Right Honourable John Diefenbaker speaking was the reason for the drive. 

No one knew we were coming. No one checked us over as we entered the big room at Prudhommes, just off the Queen Elizabeth Way.

"The Chief" made our trip well worth the while. He was assisted by others delivering one of his usual sterling performances that made the trip well worth the while.

In those far away days, if you can believe it, it was accepted those of other persuasions would be present - and there were that night.  We used to call them "hecklers". To John George they  were used as straight men or women for him to  react to. And he did. And in return get a long laugh or sustained applause from an appreciative audience.

Couldn't happen to-day.  Sign up before a meeting and even then expect to be expelled when you show up if you are deemed as having fraternized or, in the recent cases, "sorornized"with the enemy. opposition parties.

"Heckling"? Forget it. Interesting to me that while Canada seems to be going in one direction, the Land of The Patriot Act and Homeland Security still tolerates their Leaders  being subjected to what I so much enjoyed in the Canada of what's now gettin' close to 40 year ago.
