Here are seven things that brought Canadians into the streets in the dead of winter between January 1st, 2017 and mid-March, 2017d
1. U.S. Presidential Politics.”Like-minded anti-Trumpeters standing against the Donald” protested at the U.S. consulate on January 20th.
2. U.S. Women’s Marches. Reports say thousands of Canadians gathered in cities and towns across Canada on January 21st, 2017 to show solidarity with the massive Women’s March in Washington, D.C.
3. U.S. Presidential Orders. In March demonstrators reportedly returned to the U.S. consulate in downtown Toronto to protest against the U.S. Executive Order on immigration.
4. U.S. Civil Liberties. On February 9th, 2017 a “friendly” gathering in Toronto was held to protest against “the current state of the U.S.” and to collect money for the American Civil Liberties Association.
5. Fur/Down Products. Every weekend through to March 25th, 2017 protesters braved the winter weather to demonstrate against a retailer selling fur/down products.
6. Hundreds of protesters demonstrated in Toronto, Vancouver and elsewhere in Canada against opposition to Islam.
7. A smaller group reportedly protested in Toronto against the Qur’an, sharia law, and Motion 103.
None of the measures already in place to curtail basic freedoms in Canada brought any of us into the streets!! None! This has to change!!!
