American Universalist P.T. Barnum is famous for saying ‘There’s a sucker born every minute.’ Robin Edgar has certainly has his share. He has often fooled others into buying into his endless complaints of ‘abuse’ by the Unitarian Church of Montreal and others.
His latest mark? Montreal’s independent police watchdog group, Mouvement Action Justice, which let loose with his latest claims of abuse against the Montreal Police.
Apparently, the MAJ did not do its homework. If they had, then they would have easily discovered that Robin Edgar’s ‘peaceful public protest’ is just a thin disguise for a campaign of vitriolic harassment. They would have also found that the minister against which he complaints yet again, Reverend Ray Drennan, had left the church many years ago.
Then again, it could be that the MAJ simply accepts any and all complaints of ‘police abuse’ at face value, without ever checking their credibility. Perhaps there is somebody in Montreal who can shed light on their history.
Even so, if the MAJ is indeed reliable, and they decide to look into the facts before following through with Robin Edgar’s ‘case’, we may find them moved to another list of individuals and groups – the ones who learned the hard way that this man is never satisfied with anything less than unquestioned support of everything he says and does, no matter how outlandish and inexcusable.
We can only wait and see how this plays out, as with the other melodramas created by this poor, disturbed man.
