Protesters March On CANSEC 08 In Ottawa
Thursday, April 10 was the last day of proceedings at CANSEC 08, a trade show highlighting military and security technologies held at Ottawa's Congress Centre. 30-35 protestors, some wearing masks, participated. A snake march wound through some of Ottawa's busiest streets keeping Ottawa Police on the move. Apparently no route plan had been given to the Police. I saw high numbers of Police, equal in strength to the protesters but no tear gas or pepper spray was utilized. Riot trucks and equipment were standing by but events remained peaceful. One arrest was made.
