Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament. If you’re not aware, our Prime Minister has decided to stop working for the second time in two years. Which means that we currently have no working government. Long story, just look up some Canadian news and you’ll get the gist, I just don’t feel like elaborating here and now. In any case, there was a Rally on the Hill on Saturday, and I went. I’m glad I did, I feel proud that I did, and what an event it was.
There were so many people with flags and signs, including the one on a hockey stick. Win.
Elizabeth May spoke, leader of the Green Party.
Michael Ignatieff spoke, leader of the Liberal Party.
Jack Layton spoke, leader of the New Democratic Party.
I will now admit to a little bit of Fangirl Squee, because all these people were only about 20 feet in front of me. I somehow managed to squeeze my way right up to the front and sat in between two camera tripods. It was great. Cold, but great.
There was also one really amazing guy with an awesome sign.
More pictures (as always) on my Flickr.
