Anti crime bill (C10) protest in Ottawa

Update DEC 5h 2011: The “ominous” bill C10 just passed the first vote in Canada’s House of Commons.

Anti Crime Bill (C10) protesters in front of Canada's Supreme Court with the West Wing of Parliament in the back in Ottawa SAT 26NOV2011

I heard the demonstrators were 2 meet at Confederation Park @ NOON and then march to Parliament 2 protest the Omnibus Crime Bill C-10. Info here. I caught up on the hill and started taping when some of the protesters stopped on the Western leading 2 lanes of Wellington @ Kent Street. My estimate: there must have been around a 1000 people protesting Saturday, 26th of November 2011. Traffic was passing @ all times, even with some sitting down on that Northern half of the street. Although traffic had 2 slow down 2 pass the protesters, there was a rather supportive reaction from most of the drivers, some of which were sounding their horns and waving their hands. Please press play 2 see 4 yourself.

A number of interesting speakers on the steps of Canada’s highest court of appeal are next, the speeches are all complete, my edits aim 2 make my crappy recordings a little more bearable in a number of ways. In the order of their appearance:
