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
