Most of the demonstrators marched down to Lois Brown’s constituency office for the second half of the demonstration (my leg was killing me, so I drove). Here’s pictures and comments. Note that even though (or maybe in spite of) being told that we’d be coming, Lois wasn’t in.
Here’s the crowd starting to form in front of Lois’s office:
And another picture, a bit closer. By this point I wasn’t moving very fast 🙂
Even Elvis showed up. He was in worse shape than I was, being stuck in a wheelchair.
The sign on Lois’s office
Liz with the megaphone!
Nick, one of the other organizers, setting up the amplifier.
Hardcore protestor carrying two signs.
People were having a good time, even if it was awfully cold.
Lots of signs, lots of different messages, one thing in common. No one is happy with Stephen Harper.
Another view of the Anti-Stephen Harper club.
Proof positive that Canadians are crazy, this young lady road here bike to the demonstration.
Why did the chicken cross the road…
We had a pretty good crowd that stuck around till the end.
I talked to this lady, she is a teacher, and heard about the demonstration from her students parents.
Another enthusiastic protester, carrying a Canadian flag.
The media showed up – finally.
Rogers Cable videoing Nick – I wonder if this actually got shown on the news?
Elvis waiting for a chance to speak.
The cops – I get the impression that they really didn’t know what to make of us.
In closing – Liz says some final words.
Again, thanks to Nick, Liz, and whoever else helped organize this.
