At Queen's Park - day 60

Today was the day the e-health scandal unraveled. I was listening to the transmission of a press conference live on the radio as I was coming from Queen's Park. So the heads rolled. The Minister of Health is not the Minister of Health anymore, and the Minister of Children and Social Services is now the Minister of Health. So we have a new Minister of Social Services. I wander if it is good or bad news for us.

Today is the biggest demonstration I have ever witnessed in the two months I have been coming here. Bus after bus was arriving, and people poured out on the green grass. Over a thousand Nortel pensioners came to make sure that their pensions will not disappear. Andrea Horvath is speaking as I am writing this. Flags are flapping on the wind.
