Thou dost protest

More on this in a bit, but here is the news.

A loud protest in the visitors gallery of the House of Commons led to several arrests and the brief shutdown of question period on Monday. About 200 protesters chanted slogans to support Bill C-311, an NDP private member’s bill on climate change. The protesters yelled, “I say 311, you say ‘sign it.'”

NDP house leader Libby Davies seems not to have minded the disruption. Conservative MP Stephen Woodworth dismisses the young people as “thugs.”
