Not much news coverage to be found on yesterdays protest at the GG’s mansion. I did find this article in the Ottawa Sun.
It describes the crowd in attendance as “mostly geriatric” and “carrying a ceramic baby Jesus, wearing rosary beads and crucifixes and carrying signs.” What image are you getting in your mind’s eye right now? (My first thought: How did people grasping walkers and canes manage to also wield signs and ceramic babies?) Clearly, the writer was attempting to make this crowd seem as abstract as possible. We obviously can’t rely on the media to be objective.
Thank goodness for video, one of which is posted alongside the aforementioned article. It’s worth a watch, and probably provides far more objectivity. One young woman (Faytene Kryskow), after listing examples, states that she’s against abortion primarily “because it has hurt [her] friends.” She was rosary and walker free.
