We had a good crowd of about 500 people in Moncton, which is quite large for a city this size (the same proportion would be 20,000 people in Toronto). Zero police. A lot of horns being honked in sympathy. Loud drums. Union support. No politicians (none!). A lot of media, who were gone after a half hour or so. Link to photos below. As I write the protest continues, with diminished numbers, in a gale-force wind (really really unpleasant weather). Here's the photo set on Flickr.
