Regina: Slightly Occupied

Today was the anniversary of the start of Occupy Wall Street. But hey, Regina was occupied for a while too, remember? And sure enough, the occasion was marked by a small but boisterous group of protesters on the Scarth W. Frederick pedestrian Hill mall. Speakers–including Sask Green Party leader Victor Lau, Ward 9 (northwest Regina) candidate Dawn Thomas and recently rebooted mayoral candidate Chad Novak–spoke on topics including citizen engagement, the new stadium and the general total trashing of the environment that’s popular these days. All in all it was feisty and well-organized, and the speakers were articulate.

Hey look! Photos!

  1. WTF they let Chad Novak speak???? Chief spokesperson for “Unoccupy Regina” when the camp was still in play Chad Novak? I was in Ottawa for the Parliament Hill protest so I didn’t know this until now… and you didn’t bring it up? Same with media who covered “Occupy The Stadium” mentioned Novak and gave the impression he was part of Occupy… WTF????
