No Missile Defence in Canada!

At least, that's what 200 raving lunatics said in Ottawa this weekend at a rally:

A group calling itself Raging Grannies believes that the system will eventually lead to the weaponization of space.

I'm not even going to touch that one.

NDP MP Alexa McDonough, who spoke at a rally, called on Prime Minister Paul Martin to abandon any ideas of participating in the defence system.
In Vancouver, NDP leader Jack Layton who was attending a protest rally said, a free vote should be held in the House of Commons on the issue.

Well, I guess that makes it 202 raging grannies. Conservatives in Canada know that Layton is an absolute loonie-toon, but I will say this for Alexa: at she isn't a complete liberal moonbat. She does have a history of trying to bring her party towards the centre.

But if only a few hundred people protested this weekend, that makes me think that the majority of Canadians just don't really care about the "evil" missile defence program. They aren't buying into the scare-tactics and hype of the left.
