A man with a camera who stumbled on a military special forces exercise in a small Cape Breton town had his patriotism gruffly questioned by an undercover soldier, and was quizzed about whether he belonged to an anti-government movement.
Robert Westbrook said he was also threatened with arrest and he worried the undercover soldier would lash out and strike him.
It was good to hear the photographer assert his rights as a citizen and a photographer. The stance these military people can take is ludicrous if they only thought for a minute and realized "oh, we never notified the public, we're not in uniforms so how the hell could this guy even know why we're here?".
If that's the general level of intelligence among spec ops we're in big trouble.
