Throne Speech Protest: Bridget Marcelle Stood Up For Canada

Stop Harper Sign

Earlier this afternoon, Brigette Marcelle, a 21 year old senate page, reminded Prime Minister Stephen Harper that most of Canada doesn’t share his vision. She marched into the Canadian Senate chamber during the throne speech bearing a red “Stop Harper” stop sign. The sergeant-at-arms immediately escorted her out of the room.
