Video: Peace protesters confront Liberals Dion and Rae

Carrying signs: ‘Canada’s war in Afghanistan, don’t extend it, end it, bring the troops home now’, a group of anti-war activists lead by James Clark of the Toronto Coalition to Stop the War disrupted Liberal Bob Rae’s March 7 by-election rally at the St. Lawrence Market in Toronto. Just as Rae began his introduction of Stephane Dion, calling the opposition leader a ‘man of peace’, Clark asked his questions about why the Liberal leader is going along with Harper’s 2011 extension of the Afghan war. Clearly, Dion and Rae were uncomfortable, but the cameras focussed on James Clark kept rolling. Dion heard the message loud and clear, but walked away without a comment or answer.
