Protest Parliament... Being Back in Session

All jocularity aside, a group called Guelph Participates is holding a "Searchlight on Democracy Walk and Talk" tomorrow evening:

The Guelph chapters of Council of Canadians and Canadians Against Proroguing Parliament - Guelph Participates is holding "Searchlight on Democracy Walk and Talk" on March 2nd. The event is being held to highlight the return of the MPs to the House of Commons after the controversial prorogation of Parliament on December 30, 2009. People are asked to gather at 7:00 p.m. in front of Guelph City Hall (1 Carden St) and are encouraged to bring flash lights or candles to the event. Several speakers will address the group. Following that, the group will walk to Norfolk United church for presentations and discussions on how to hold government accountable for their actions and to consider changes in parliamentary practices to avoid such abuses in the future.
