More Staggering Numbers

This time from Ottawa:

Hundreds in Ottawa join global occupy protests

The Ottawa region has a population of well over a million. Why do these protests get so much attention?

Oh. And this is cute:
"Most protesters were there to demand higher taxes for the wealthy and curbs on banks, but there were also animal rights activists, people claiming the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks in the U.S. were an "inside job," and homeless people who normally live in the park.

One of the demonstration's leaders was Brigette DePape, a former page in Canada's Senate who was fired on June 3 for protesting on the floor of Canada's upper legislative house during a speech delivered by the Governor General."
Don't worry, Brigette, sweetheart. We figured you out a long time ago.
