Excerpt 



Windflower had been away for the past few days when this ‘direct action’ had begun. He was working on a special assignment with Acting Inspector Bill Ford in Marystown but got regular updates from Eddie Tizzard. At first, the RCMP allowed the protesters to assemble and delay the trucks from leaving, but when they started blocking access to the fish plant, the RCMP stepped in and started arresting people. About 40 locals had already been arrested and released on bond with conditions to stay away from the fish plant.
And now 44. Windflower sipped his coffee in the corner.
Finally one person emerged from the coffee klatch on the other side of the café. It was the Mayor of Grand Bank, Bill Sinnott. Windflower wondered what he wanted, but the Mayor’s open smile disarmed him, and he quickly smiled back.
“Mornin’, Sergeant,” said Mayor Sinnott. “Looks like we’re in for a bit of snow. Forecast says we’re getting a little, ten centimetres I think they said. But my old bones tell me there’s more blowin’ in from offshore than dat.”
“Good morning, Mr. Mayor,” said Windflower. “You may be right about the weather. I never know what to expect anymore, except that we will get snow, and sometimes a lot of it. And a big snowstorm that keeps everybody at home for a few days might help defuse the situation around here.”
“It might,” said the Mayor. “But you know tings have a way of working themselves out. Sometimes we have to sit back and let nature run its course.”
Windflower just sat quietly again with his coffee as he pondered the Mayor’s quirky, but often correct philosophy on life.
“And sometimes we have to let the people we love make their own way in life,” Mayor Sinnott continued. Before Windflower could respond to this bon mot, Sinnott lumbered his way back to his constituents to continue his informal consultations.
Windflower suspected that he’d heard about Sheila. He was still in a state of melancholy and amazement that the woman he loved was now in the back of an RCMP paddy wagon, on her way to being booked for trespassing and public nuisance.
