This might actually be a serious enough topic to move to a more appropriate forum.
Just got back from snapping a few pictures(wish I had a digital camera) of a protest that is going on right now in Toronto. Farmers are driving into the city, using all of the major highways(400 series) with tractors, combines, and sprayers. They are headed to the provincial legislative building and are going to parade around the circle all day. It as been suggested that they might let cows loose on the lawn.
There are many reasons for this protest
1) Green Belt Legislation
2) Closed Border for beef
3) Tobacco Legislation
4) Low commodity prices
5) Nutrient Management Regulations
6) White Trash/Redneck Quotient (my land factor)
While for a few things I can understand their issues and the problems they face, on others I have no sympathy. Maybe it is because of where I've lived the past few years.
Anyways, what are your thoughts on this type of protest?
I'll post pictures next week, check tomorrows newspapers, I was fighting for position with pros at one spot because the compositon of the photo will be cool, tractors on the Gardiner with teh CN tower in the background.
