On February 15, 2003, 15 million people around the globe marched in opposition to the impending war in Iraq. Despite not convincing the U.S. or UK governments to draw back from their invasion plans, the pressure generated that day did convince several governments, including Canada's, not to participate in what would turn out to be a military debacle that the United States and the United Kingdom are still reeling from more than a decade later.
