Protesters Interrupt Mulcair Book Launch

TORONTO NDP Leader Tom Mulcair's book launch was briefly interrupted today by protesters pressing him for a position on the Energy East pipeline.

As Mulcair was reading passages from his autobiography, "Strength of Conviction," a couple of people stood up and unfurled banners.



The small group was quickly escorted out the room by Mulcair's security detail as they yelled "Stop Energy East" and asked if Mulcair would say no to the project if it's incompatible with national action on climate change.

Mulcair responded by saying "Of course we will," adding that's why a new system is needed.

Both Mulcair and Liberal Leader Justin Trudeau have said they don't trust the current federal pipeline review process and would introduce what they call stricter and more thorough analyses of proposed energy projects.


TransCanada's Energy East pipeline is particularly sensitive because the pipeline's projected route goes through several provinces.

At least one of the protesters returned during the book signing and posed for a photo with Mulcair.

So some goofballs protested something the beard already is on record as opposing?
Can you say set up?

And according to CP one of the protesters buys a book from Mulcair and poses for a photo with him. Nothing but a 'free, anti-energy, pro-green, save the world' publicity stunt?

I doubt that many are paying a lot of attention just yet. We're still at the 'trash talk before getting into the ring' stage of things, the real fight begins in september.
