Going Too Far?

According to a Spec report,(see it here or purchase today's print copy), Hamilton police will take measures to keep the peace over disputes involving the installation of super mailboxes, but will not take sides on the issue, citing that the matter is before the courts. This in response to the militant actions of some, who have taken to standing in holes to prevent Canada Post contractors to install the mailboxes.

The Hamiltonian is expecting a statement from city Councillor Terry Whitehead, who  appears to be leading the charge in terms of the city's position on the matter of additional super mailboxes being installed. Clr. Whitehead's comments are expected to arrive next week and will be in reference to a statement released to The Hamiltonian by Canada Post General Manager Jon Hamilton. See that statement by clicking here. 

What are your thoughts. Is this going too far?

    Standing in holes is just plain dumb. Hamilton has to get off the map for silliness. There are laws and stop distracting our police.

  2. I always have respected Terry Whitehead because he is a fighter and one of the few councillors who has the humility to change his mind if he believes his position needs to be adjusted.My only caution to Terry is to be careful that he does not end up inciting disobedience. People can be very easily sparked and he should not be encouraging any of that. Keep fighting, but do it in the courts.
