OF THE COPS
Days after former
top and front running mayoralty candidate Jacques Duchesneau was
publicly cream-pied, two "polite" officers from the SQ
called on François Gourd, mouthpiece for les Entartistes,
the local wing of the Internationale Anarcho-Pâtissière
founded by Belgian entarteur Noel Godin.
The SQ spooks advised Gourd and his merry band of pranksters to
"think twice" about carrying out future pie hits on prominent
Québec politicians Lucien Bouchard, uber alles. A few days
later, says Gourd, two "very, very polite" RCMP officers
showed up with a similar message about federal politicians.
"Both the SQ and the RCMP told me it was their duty to prevent
us from throwing pies," recalled Gourd. "And I told them
both it was our duty to throw pies"
Despite the ominous undertones, Gourd thinks such dialogue between
Les Entartistes and the police is a good thing.
"I saw a lot of police hostility during the SalAMI demonstrations
," he said. "That`s not good; it`s not healthy for the
police and no fun for demonstrators. We want more peaceful demonstrations,
Police concerns that a future pie thrower could be injured (or worse)
by a robot cop bodyguard mistaking a cream-pie attack for something
more sinister are very much appreciated by the pie man.
"I suggested that they assign security people to protect us
from their security from their security people," recounted
To that end, they returned the courtesy call Wednesday, showing
up firts at SQ HQ, later at RCMP HQ, bearing cream-pie "gifts"
for their new police friends.
"We want to collaborate with them ," explained Gourd.
"It`s important that they got to know the difference between
a cream pie and a gun."
To help foster police-community relations, Les Entartistes volunteered
to conduct cream-pie workshops and seminars for law-enforcement
agencies they may encounter in their pie campaign.
Les Entartistes also told Hour that Reform Party leader Preston
Manning has been "unanimously" selected as their next
