Supporters Chant "Harper! Harper! Harper!" at No Coalition Rally at Library Square
Today's rain didn't stop a few hundred people from showing up for an outdoor rally at Library Square to oppose the NDP-Liberal-Bloc coalition that could topple Prime Minister Stephen Harper. A number had traveled to the downtown Vancouver rally from outlying areas; the young couple standing next to me were from Abbotsford.
Stockwell Day, a Conservative cabinet minister, was the first to speak from a small stage under a white tent with a maple leaf on the roof. Then a number of MP's and three non-politicians spoke.
I'll post more on the rally later, but for now here are some photos.
"Don't Mess with Success" is the line at the bottom of this cut 'n paste poster.
Stockwell Day was accessible after the rally. People were walking up to the stage to offer a comment or a handshake.
But he soon had to give his attention to reporters.
