The intro to this post is in part 1.
These are photos I took at the anti eco-fee demonstration today if front of Bob Charelli’s costituency office in Ottawa. While not all the people there were wondering whether taxes ought to be voluntary, it does appear that many Ontarians have reached the breaking point and will simply not stand for any more taxes.
By the way – it was revealed that, among the protesters, were not just conservatives and libertarians: a few card-carrying Liberals were noticed by their neighbours. This does not bode well for the McGuingy gang….
Now, to the pictures:
While the above sign warns of ‘Liberal spies amongst us’, I do suspect that most of the Liberals there were in agreement with the protest – after all, even many Liberals opposed Premier McGuinty’s idea of permitting industry to levy taxes on the citizens of Ontario. After all, ‘fascism’ is, by definition, the collusion of government with industry…
This young nman, however, self identified as being from Mr. McGuinty’s office: and, until his batteries ran out, he did record the protest!
This protest also drew a lot of ‘political’ people – more photos and ‘who’ was there will be in part 3!
