My wife and I attended the Worldwide Rally for Freedom, held today on Parliament Hill in Ottawa.
MPP Randy Hillier opened with the Lord’s Prayer. (*Update: someone did; I thought they said it was him, but I couldn’t see the speakers; perhaps it was pre-recorded and was indeed him, because I later learned he attended the Worldwide Rally for Freedom in Toronto, so not sure he could have made both.)
We stayed for an hour, listened to various speakers; some were inspiring, others a bit less so; one individual came off a bit unhinged.
But the crowd was enthusiastic, cheerful, and optimistic, and had great signs and banners.
And hundreds turned out, despite the -20°C weather. (Hey, we’re Canadian; we’re tough. 😉 )
And we were delighted to bump into others from our own church; no idea they’d be there! 🙂
