“If there were a global competition for the most brazen and preposterously transparent attempt by a ruling political party to change a necessary subject of national debate with alarmist distractions and hubbub, the Conservative escapade engineered in Ottawa these past few days really deserves some kind of grand prize.”
Update 11 JAN: The Toronto Star calls a Cabinet Minister using that rhetoric “nuts”. This passage contains a more realistic assessment: “The parody lies with the fact that Canada’s oil industry is dominated by multinationals. That means there will indeed be a lot of big-money foreign interests pushing the three-person federal review panel to okay a pipeline from Alberta’s oilsands to a tanker port at Kitimat on the British Columbia coast.
Update DEC 5h 2011: The “ominous” bill C10 just passed the first vote in Canada’s House of Commons.
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.
