Just the Tip of the Iceberg in Truro

On August 3, 2007, Truro Mayor (aka Bible thumping homophobe) refused to raise the Pride Flag, quoting scripture which says it goes against his beliefs, yet strangely he did not ban seafood or those of cloven hooves.

On Sunday August 12, 2007, Truro Councillor Raymond Tynes was subjected to racist slurs by white youths which apparently was not the first time he has to deal with this sort of thing.

This two stories do not bode well for this community, especially when your elected mayor is lumped into the same group as racist youth. It just looks really, really bad.

As I said about Herouxville, Quebec, it is best to get the hell out of dodge. This is symptomatic of a serious underbelly of hatred brewing and not much you can do about it but leave and watch the town slide into oblivion. As well who wants to deal with such pigs on a day to day basis?

When stories like this make news nationally, and internationally, its a safe bet they will be paying the price through loss of jobs and business. Who wants to locate a company in an area where their employees are subjected to homophobia, racism and general bigotry? Who wants to hire potential employees that will gum up the operations with human rights complaints left and right ? I know I'll be putting up my windows and locking my doors as I drive through that hick town for now on.

To hell with Truro. It'll be a nice picturesque ghost town or retirement town for old bigots. Maybe Suzanne at Big Blue Wave has already bought some waterfront property. Who knows.

Be sure to check back to read the racist, bigoted, and homophobic comments that will surely follow this post.
