Protesting Parliament Proroguing

If you don't think Parliment should be shut down, your invited to a rally this afternoon and make your voice heard. What started out as a Facebook Group has grown into a day of protest from coast to coast. The event in Saint John is being organized by Joan Pearce who tells CHSJ News, it's easy to sign your name on-line but another to get out and make your voice heard: The rally gets started at one o'clock at the Germain Street entrance of the City Market.

Weston adds an example of still getting work done even with Parliment shut down is how quickly this country responded with aid to the crisis in Haiti.
