Mississauga students vs. the PMO - "protesting?"
A story that has gained some buzz today...
A group of high school students from the Woodlands school were calling the Prime Minister's office urging PM Stephen Harper to attend the UN Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in two weeks.
The school's office manager, Gurpreet Bassi, says someone identifying themself as being from the PMO called urging her to "please have (the) students stop calling -- they are jamming up the switchboard."
The story has been branded in various media outlets as 'students protesting'.
But as a good friend put it: "I never really thought calling the PMO's office as protesting, but more of our right as Canadian citizens. I guess anything young people do these days is labeled protesting in the media...."
