Harper's Day Parade

Onlookers hanging around Union Station today will spot a papier-mâché Stephen Harper handing out fistfuls of billion dollar bills.

The tongue-and-cheek parade, organized by non-profit umbrella group At the Table Coalition as part of the Global Day of Action, will include a procession of bankers and a Human Oil Slick — the so-called “fossil fools” — who will dance around the issues and give away fake bills.

“This government must stop putting $2 billion per year towards subsidizing the oil and gas industry, and invest much more in the clean energy economy,” said Graham Saul, Executive Director of Climate Action Network Canada, in a press release. “Canada must also step up and put at least $1 billion over the next three years towards supporting poorer countries as they cope with climate change.”
