According to the CBC, there was a major disruption of Question Period yesterday, leading to youth being detained, and activist Jeh Custer apparantly beat up. New CBC Ottawa correspondent Evan Soloman interviewed Custer yesterday: http://www.cbc.ca/canada/story/2009/10/26/house-commons-protest-environment.html
The protests arose as the Climate Accountability Bill (Bill C-311) was voted to be delayed by the Conservatives and Liberals, meaning that it won't have any influence on the government when it "represents" Canadians at the Copenhagen Climate Conference.
According to Ottawa reporter David Akin doors of Parliament Hill were uncharacteristally locked this morning, as he tweeted: "#HOC front doors locked and shut this morning. Odd. Hangover from yesterday's bloody protest?"
Were any of you at the PowerShift09 conference this week-end? It was apparently the largest gathering of youth in Canadian history to converge on Ottawa for a week-end of training, strategy, networking and lobbying for climate justice. Sounds like it was an extraordinary week-end in Ottawa!
