Blogging Tory "BC Blue" wets himself over the pathetic anti-prorogation protest in Toronto:
Toronto Facebook prorogation protest numbers: “about 35″
After weeks of the media telling us how this internet movement is taking hold across Canada we get the true sense of how committed these protesters really are. In a city of 5.5 million, they managed to get out 35 people ...
Yup, that's pathetic and embarrassing, all right. It's also a little weird since the official anti-prorogation rallies aren't until Saturday, so one wonders what "BC Blue" is yapping on about. Oh:
Anti-prorogation protesters gather outside the C.D. Howe Institute in Toronto, where Prime Minister Harper attended a roundtable meeting on Wednesday, Jan. 20, 2010.
Group gets jump start on weekend rallies by sending vanguard to greet Stephen Harper in Toronto
Let's all check back with "BC Blue" on Sunday and see if he corrects the record. Won't that be entertaining?
HEH. Commenter :Ordinary Fed Up Joe" brings the reality:
It was more like 60 or so.
With about 3 hours notice, in the middle of a work day, way downtown off the subway line.
At the rally meeting for Toronto last Friday there must have been 200 volunteering just to organize and paint signs, etc.
You snobs and your elitist leaders can dismiss us as “elites” and say “Canadians don’t care” about democracy all you want, but the polls and reality are showing a different story entirely.
Unsurprisingly, "Joe" is dismissed as a whiny, little turd with his knowledge and facts and everything.
