Senate Page disrupts Throne Speech
Harper&#8217;s disastrous agenda needs to be stopped with creative action and civil disobedience
Ottawa - During the reading of Prime Minister Stephen Harper&#8217;s throne speech today, a young page was yanked from the Senate Chamber as she tried to hold up a stop sign placard reading &#8220;Stop Harper.&#8221;
"Harper&#8217;s agenda is disastrous for this country and for my generation," Brigette Marcelle says. "We have to stop him from wasting billions on fighter jets, military bases, and corporate tax cuts while cutting social programs and destroying the climate. Most people in this country know what we need are green jobs, better medicare, and a healthy environment for future generations."
Brigette Marcelle*, 21 and a recent graduate from University of Ottawa, has been a Page in the Senate for a year, but realized that working within parliament wouldn&#8217;t stop Harper&#8217;s agenda.
"Contrary to Harper&#8217;s rhetoric, Conservative values are not in fact Canadian values. How could they be when 3 out of 4 eligible voters didn&#8217;t even give their support to the Conservatives? But we will only be able to stop Harper&#8217;s agenda if people of all ages and from all walks of life engage in creative actions and civil disobediance," she says.
"This country needs a Canadian version of an Arab Spring, a flowering of popular movements that demonstrate that real power to change things lies not with Harper but in the hands of the people, when we act together in our streets, neighbourhoods and workplaces."
