Tory Leader Stephen Harper, like all federal leaders, is a favourite target for protesters and when he arrived in downtown Quebec City for a speech, he encountered the omnipresent FRAPRU (Front d’Action Populaire en Reamenagement Urbain) group of social housing activists who dog politicians of every stripe whenever they turn up in Quebec.
When one was asked whether the Tories are better than the Liberals on social housing policy, the assessment was blunt.
"They both suck," said Nicolas Lefebvre-Legault.
Not content to just protest on the sidewalk, several activists from the group bought tickets to the Chamber of Commerce luncheon at which Harper was speaking and on cue jumped up to shout him down.
"We want social housing not tax cuts," shouted one as he was frog-marched out of the room by security staff.
