National Guard moving into New Orleans to restore order

2 09 2005

An interesting read on the CBC online website about the National Guard moving in to restore order

A scary quote:

Blum of the National Guard said 7,000 National Guardsmen arriving in Louisiana on Friday would be dedicated to restoring order in New Orleans. He said half of them had just returned from assignments overseas and are “highly proficient in the use of lethal force.” He pledged to “put down” the violence “in a quick and efficient manner.”

Don’t get in their way!

Recreational Sockeye open on the non-tidal Fraser River

2 09 2005

As of dawn yesterday (Sept 1) they opened the recreational fishery for sockeye.  It looks like it will be a 7 day opening at most.  If you’re looking for me this weekend, I’ll be on the river 😉
