Protesters charged with criminal mischief
The protesters that occupied Environment Minister Jim Prentices' constituency office in Alberta were charged with criminal mischief yesterday.
The citizens, who were all members of Jim Prentices' constituency, staged the sit-in at the office beginning at 10am yesterday.
In the end, all of them were charged with criminal mischief, with a court date set for Dec. 31. The protesters said that they were able to talk to Prentice on the phone from Ottawa about his lack of leadership on the climate change front.
The CBC aired an interview with one of the men involved on 'Power and Politics' - see below.
