On a bright, sunny, peaceful Sunday afternoon, three large white SUV’s, bylaw enforcement printed in large bold black letters on both sides, pulled into a quiet suburban crescent.
Three young male bylaw officers, physically fit, dressed in all black para military style clothing jumped from their vehicles and surveyed their surroundings.
They were met with stares from the numerous senior citizens, practicing safe physical/social distancing from their doorsteps and driveways. ensuring they were the required six feet apart.
The neighbors started to congregate in the street discussing the meaning behind this intrusion.
The bylaw enforcement officers walked around in a manner determined to fulfill some divine purpose before disappearing into the walking trails at the back of the crescent.
The crescents residents, 70% seniors, turned to each other in bewilderment and whispers of Nazi Germany and Stalin’s Russia echoed through the street as the gulf between government and its citizens became wider in an increasingly legalistic society.
