G20 arrestee mystery man (con't)
Toronto police allege he was “involved in the burning of a police car at
Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue” on June 26, the same day a mass protest took place outside the summit being attended by world leaders in downtown Toronto.
But Catenacci remains largely unknown in the Windsor political activist community.
His Facebook page shows a rather mild-mannered cuddly-looking fellow and a description of conventional interests with absolutely no references to political causes.
For example, he’s single, interested in “women” and looking for “friendship.”
He also seems interested in the model Megan Fox.
He attended F. J. Brennan high school graduating in 1985.
The quote on his page states: “IT'S BETTER TO HAVE LOVED & LOST THAN TO LIVE WITH THE PSYCHO THE REST OF YOUR LIFE.., You’ll never find the right person if you don’t let go of the wrong one.”
Catenacci is a member of Carpenters Union Local 494 in Windsor.
But calls to Matthew Kwasnicki, the union’s business agent, went unreturned.
As did calls to Dino Chiodo, president of the Windsor and District Labour Council.
But Enver Villamizar, a member of the Marxist-Leninist Party of Canada and a former federal election candidate, said he had no idea who Catenacci is.
“I don’t know him and I don’t know anyone who knows him,” he said. “I’ve been trying to find out myself.”
Villamizar, former present of the University of Windsor Students’ Alliance, said the way Catenacci was arrested seems “a bit suspicious. If the police were surveilling him why didn’t they just go to his house or something.”
Doug Hayes, chair of the Windsor chapter of the Council of Canadians, also said he doesn’t know the arrestee.
“I don’t know him and he’s not involved with the Council of Canadians.”
And Jim Davies, coordinator of the University of Windsor chapter of the Ontario Public Interest Research Group (OPIRG) said, “No, never heard of him” but would check around if others were acquainted with Catenacci.
Both Villamizar and Hayes attended protests at the G20 Summit that same day along with busloads of Windsor union members.
Catenacci’s Facebook page shows 60 friends, including some high profile ones such as a politician and broadcasters.
But those contacted by WindsorOntarioNews.com said they had no idea who he is.
As one said, “Jeez, you know, I have 800 people....the bad thing is, you add people that you don’t really know.”
An attempt to reach Catenacci was unsuccessful.
