Activist Brigette DePape was a page in the Canadian Senate when she came to the attention of the public on June 3, 2011 by a protest she made during the first throne speech of the majority government of Stephen Harper. By silently holding up a sign that said "Stop Harper!" she earned dismissal from her job, the media nickname "the rogue page," and the admiration of Canadians concerned with the undemocratic, ideologically extreme tendencies of the Harper government.
On the occasion of the Conservative Party's Ottawa convention, Brigette DePape speaks at an Anti Harper Rally, June 10 2011. A week earlier DePape gained international attention as the "rogue page" who interrupted the Speech from the Throne, as she held up a "Stop Harper' sign in the Senate Chambers.
She's still my favourite.
