As I was walking the Drive yesterday, I came across an anti-poverty rally down at the corner of 7th where the speakers, cleverly, can use the staircase as a podium.
This took place at the wettest time of the morning but they still managed a decent crowd. From the signs, this was a crowd that supported increases to welfare rates and the re-establishment of bus passes for the disabled. Not too many votes there for Christie Clark I’m guessing.
I didn’t see any of this on the news last night. Maybe I blinked.
