Edmonton Activist

By  | 

An Edmonton woman is standing up for what she believes in but she's not using her voice.

Lynda Farley has been speaking her mind about issues concerning many Americans for a little more than a year.

"I call it the liberty van," Lynda said. It all started on a trip to Illinois.

"They had just passed the Chicago smoking ban and I was so a angry about that smoking ban that I stopped at a Wal-Mart and picked up some poster paint and pulled over at the first rest area right off the Illinois state line and I painted in great big letters on my back window, smokers not wanted in Chicago, boycott Illinois," Lynda said.

Her need to stand up for what she believes in grew from there. Lynda places signs on her van about issues ranging from no smoking laws, to private property, to pet owner's rights.

"I'm hoping we're going to go back to the constitution of the United States as it's written. I don't want to live in a communist country... that is where they have communal property and there is no private property," Lynda said.

Lynda said decorating her van has also become a hobby. She's even made stickers displaying her beliefs and wears them whenever she's out and about.

"People ask me for some and I usually have some in my pocket," Lynda said.

Whether you agree with her opinions or not, most people are intrigued by her van.

"I had so much fun on that trip ... 99 out 100 people ... waving ... thumbs up ... victory signs ... lots of positive responses ... cheers applause ... even a whole car load of people from California blowing kisses at my van," Lynda said.

Lynda said she doesn't plan on taking the signs off her van anytime soon. She also has websites expressing her opinions.
