    I really don't see what going there on a Saturday would do any good anyways.Wouldn't it be better if people showed up during the week at the MP of your area all on the same day across Canada?

    Even if I wanted to go, I couldn't afford to miss two weeks of work when I got home to self isolate.

    Much better idea. The public is poorly educated on the subject anyway, and the media will ensure the coverage is spun to keep them that way. A visit to your local MP on the other hand...hard to duck out of that.

    Didn't you get the memo? Protest are germ/bacteria/virus free environments.

    I had planned to go if I was in the neighborhood, but it turns out the job we are heading to on the 9th is in red lake so no where near Ottawa, and I think the job will be pushed again to the 13th (i hope anyhow there i s course i would like to take on the 12th)

    As much as I want to go, I can't in good conscience go and then attend a wedding the following week. (Not an option to skip the wedding and elderly will be in attendance.)

    Nobody there until 23 Sept. Any "march" will be protesting to an empty building.

    A better use of the money I'd have spent on this silliness will be donated to the CCFR legal fund. A better use of my time would be damn near anything.

    Nobody in the building would care enough to even glance out a window anyway. The point is a show of solidarity within the community as well as an opportunity to engage some of the public about the issue. If we can't even muster that up, then our doomsday clock is at 11:59:59. If you can't make it for legit reasons that's one thing, but not bothering is kind of lame. I'm disappointed how many people will be shooting IPSC matches in Ontario on Saturday instead, massive irony.
