Huck Farper: PM's visit to Guelph draws protesters
Wednesday, October 15, 20083 Comments
But the visit wasn't all fun and games as a group of about 15 protesters - many of which are current or former Guelph students - arrived just in time to host a small demonstration opposing Harper, the Conservatives, and the direction our country is going.
The demo consisted largely of banners and signs with slogans such as "End the War in Afghanistan", "Huck Farper", and "Honk to Stop the War on the Poor".
One of the demonstrators tried to enter the building where the event was being held but was quickly picked from the crowd by event organizers and he spent the next 20 minutes explaining himself to Guelph police.
Although there was a heavy presence of police and what appeared to be CSIS agents, the protest was non-violent and both sides were respectful of each others rights.
The cannon was able to obtain a photo from the demonstration, which is included in this article.
