#ClimateStrike in Pictures: Quiet, Staid Ottawa Comes to Life
Opinion & Analysis
Angry. Joyous. Creative. Determined. Loud. Ottawa isn’t a town that usually comes out in large numbers for public marches. For #ClimateStrike September 27, an estimated 20,000 people had other ideas.
The sense of anticipation hit before the LRT reached downtown. My first thought when I saw the sea of humanity converging around the rallying point at Confederation Park: Political types take note: If this can happen in quiet, staid, bureaucratic Ottawa, it can happen anywhere. Actually…it already is.
