Protests in Ottawa


All in all, it was a quiet day. President Bush is still here, of course, probably over in Quebec right now waiting for the Secret Service to finish doing a security sweep of the Museum of Civilisation (and surrounding neighbourhood) so he can hunker down with the PM for a nice meal of Alberta Beef and…er…squash. Or whatever they’re serving up over there tonight.

The security downtown was minimal from what I saw, other than the “security bubble” that followed the pres around all day. As far as I can tell from the news reports, basically nothing was accomplished, and Bush has remained wilfully ignorant of the general dislike and distrust Canadians feel towards him. Whatever.

Winning sign of the day: FREE BEER!
Winning protest group of the day: Belly Dancers Against Bush.
