Aug 7 2022 DemocraCycle Interview Nine, Perth, Ontario

Perth, says Wikepedia, is a town in Eastern Ontario, Canada, over 200 years old. It’s on the Tay River, 83 kilometres (52 mi) southwest of Ottawa, and is the seat of Lanark County. Population is around 6,500.

I stayed at an Airbnb hosted by a jaunty fellow named Marcel. Originally from a place outside of Sudbury called Azilda, he has lived in a series of small towns. In his living room hangs a caricature of him done up like Marcel Marceau, the famour mime. But the Perth-based Marcel is not silent. He has a lot to say about Canadian democracy. He also comments on the February 2022 Ottawa convoy. An expressive guy holds forth on his views.
