Jim Prentice and the Pancake Protest

by


Jim Prentice held his annual Calgary Stampede pancake breakfast in the parking lot of the Italian restaurant Osteria de Medici, the same location former PM Joe Clark used to host his pancake breakfasts. But this year, the industry minister had protesters across the street who were upset over C-61, the bill that will amend the copyright act.
