It has long been opined that the level of government that has the most
everyday effect on the lives of citizens is City or Municipal
government. After that provincial government is the most important or
pervasive influence on everyday ordinary Canadians. Health-Care is
solely under provincial jurisdiction, education is under provincial
purview, most environmental law enforcement, infrastructure an so on.
It has also been long posited that winning a councillor's ,or
alder-creature's seat on City Council is the most difficult electoral
feat in a modern liberal democracy. The vast majority of City, and
Municipal jurisdiction are not part of , or party to...party politics,
and or its myriad of political support systems. It is essentially a
one man show.
It is a civic election year here in Alberta. All of Alberta's cities,
towns, villages, municipalities are having their elections. Here in
Edmonton a largely incompetent incumbent Mayor has resigned leaving
the field wide open for all of Edmonton wannabe Mayors. As Lorne
Gunter says, "the last thing this city needs is another big dreaming,
big spending visionary. When Stephen Mandel became Mayor in 2004
Edmonton was 40 million in debt and Mandel was decidedly
pro-development. Now Edmonton is 2 billion dollars in debt and still
has poor snow removal, roads infested with potholes.
I live in Ward 6, here there are 11 candidates for one Alder-creature
position. Most of the candidates have no money, not well employed,
have no government or management experience, and not particularly
bright. To wit: There is bimbo poet and author Candas Jane Dorsey. She
says her qualifications for city government are: "I have always been
very involved in creating things, and community development in the
arts community." Well that certainly "qualifies" the bimbo to be
involved in taxation, budget making, governance and administration!
Another candidate for ward six alder-creature is longtime unemployed
parasite Adil Pirbhai. Adil is akin to David Amos as he is banned from
every radio phone in talk show in the province, even the sports call
in shows. This must be the third or fourth civic election that Adil
Pirbhai has been seeking a "government job" without any success. He
claims to be an accountant of sorts but there is no listing for him in
any of the accounting professional associations, and he has no
professional designation. Adil is the designated "diversity candidate"
the token ethnic with absolutely no chance of winning and would have
to be assassinated for the greater good if he did.
The very vast majority of Edmontonians commute to work and play by
cars, not Public Transit. And while LRT, more buses, and bikes and
bike lanes may well appear nice to have. Edmontonians drive cars and
trucks to work and always will. So fuck bike lanes, they are only
going to be used, if at all for 7 months of the year.
Outgoing Mayor Stephen Mandel wanted to spend 1 billion over ten years
to provide housing and social management for roughly 2000 homeless
animals. But city is not cutting the grass in parks, maintaining
sports fields, nor maintaining roads.
The government, or level of government that has the most immediate,
direct effect on our lives is municipal government, and then the
provincial legislature and bureaucracy. But most of the time have the
least amount of reportage in the media.
The problem with municipal government is any bimbo, or immigrant,
artist or high school drop-out feels qualified to be a municipal

Anatomy of a Troll
Trolls come in a variety of different sizes and shapes. Some are the
hit and run types and will create a different username and profile for
each attack while others are in it for the long haul and stick to a
Trolls have been studied for awhile and the more thats learned about
them the more an understanding develops of what they have in common
and what drives them. Trolls love anonymity and there's usually a good
reason for it. We're not talking about successful popular people when
it comes to trolls. They are very often exactly as they would be
imagined – basement socially awkward dwellers with little to offer
anyone or anything. Trolls are angry at the world and try to take out
that anger by causing grief to others.
One troll in particular was outed by the BBC as part of the
documentary Panorama. A reporter tracked down a troll in Cardiff,
Wales, who goes by the handle Nimrod Severn. His real names is Darren
Burton, and he comments on memorial pages set up on Facebook to honor
those who have died. In particular, he's fond of posting that he hopes
the deceased "rot in piss". See the thumbnail to the left above that
was posted on Rehtaeh's memorial page and you get the idea.
Burton fits the profile perfectly. He's a lonely angry little man and
he gets off lashing out and causing pain to others. He didn't seem to
impressed when he was outed. Below is a segment from the documentary:
Another famous troll was outed last year by GAWKER's Adrien Chen.
Michael Brutsch, aka Violentacrez (pronounced Violent-Acres), was a
Reddit moderator who was responsible for creating such categories as
r/creepshots, r/beatingwomen, and r/jailbait. Yes, jailbait as in
images of minors.
A week after being outed, Brutsch held an interview with CNN's
Anderson Cooper. In the interview Brutsch was apologetic about his
activity and said he made a mistake by not listening to people
concerned about his "contributions." He also lost his job.
The risk factor in trolling has certainly changed. Anonymous and other
groups have begun outing and reporting pedophiles, rapists, and online
tormentors. They helped bring down hate pages set up following Rehtaeh
Parsons death and have been helpful with Amanda Todd's case. Anonymous
also drove the Steubenville Rape Case and helped bring justice to a
Edmontonian/Calgarian Barry (Walter) Winters
Given the costs and embarrassment of being exposed why troll at all? I
recently asked that very question to a blogger who has written some
very disturbing things about my daughter as well as me, her mother,
Arabs, Muslims, First Nations Peoples, and many, many others. His
response thus far, other than to "dissuade" me from emailing him, has
been silence. He has gone on a panic posting spree. Getting as much
hate spread as he can before he's gone.
To be clear, I fully support freedom of speech and am not interested
in censoring anyone, especially not for a lack of taste, class, and
decency. He can post away for all I care. I doubt anyone even visits
his pathetic site and if they do I'm sure they leave rather quickly.
I do believe there is a point when behaviour online becomes criminal.
Stating to have seen images of an underage girl naked could very well
mean this individual is accessing child pornography and that may need
to be looked into by law enforcement. I have been in touch with the
police in Edmonton. If he has accessed these images they may be on his
This is Barry (Walter) Winters. Winters does work the the Department
of National Defence in Alberta, possibly in a security role. He's run
his blog since 2009 and appears to have covered every topic under the
sun but is fixated on an individual I'll not name (besides me, he's
fixated on me too).
Winters emailed me, much to my surprise, when I found out through
another source he was behind the site. At first I really didn't care
because he's just one nut and the bowl is full, so to speak. We've had
lots of trolling on the memorial page and I've had some comments
posted here that are disgusting to be polite about it. Ignoring them
is the best policy unless they are threatening or criminal in nature.
I can't understand the why though? Why post this type of hateful
dribble if being exposed for doing so could have serious consequences.
Winters works for DND. Do they know he wants to shoot Palestinians, or
as he calls them, "the under-evolved animals."
The Muslim and self described "palestinian" immigrants aren't
Canadians or fit in here as real Canadians. Lets give them, Fatima and
the kiddies ten minutes to clear out of Canada, and then start
shooting the under-evolved animals.
Or how about this one:
Indians are drunken pigs.
His claims to have seen child pornography involving Rehtaeh Parsons is
puzzling. Usually the kinds of people who view something as sick as
child porn don't openly brag about it.
I HAVE SEEN naked pictures of Rehtaeh.
There's a lot more filth and hateful comments on his site. I can't
read it, it's nothing more then the ramblings of a sad angry little
man who is so frustrated with life he just wants to share his pain. I
really hope DND takes a look at Barry. Our tax dollars should be going
to better Canadians than him.
Trolls do what they do for a reaction. They almost never think there
will be consequences for it.

UPDATE: A police report has been filed with Edmonton Police to verify
whether or not Barry Winters has accessed child pornography like he's
claimed to have done.

Glen, keep us updated. Blogs, Twitter and Facebook are delivering the
news that matters. Deeply saddened that you've been forced to contend
with this after the loss of your daughter. Bullies want our silence.
Heartened to see you have the courage to take a stand.

silence of our friends. ~ Martin Luther King, Jr.

What an evil, disgusting, miserable POS Barry Winters is. Glen, I am
so sorry about this nightmare you and your family have endured. I know
that nothing can ever bring Rehtaeh back, but I hope and pray that
justice will eventually be served. Sending you, Leah, and Rehtaeh all
of my love.
