we dog jason kenney and make headlines

Yesterday's protest was noticed. From the Toronto Sun:
New Canucks see protest

Immigration minister Jason Kenney was dogged by a dozen noisy protesters yesterday as he presided over a formal swearing-in ceremony of 98 new Canadians.

Some of the new Canucks took photos of the sign-waving War Resisters Support Campaign, whose members want Kenney to stop the removal of draft dodgers to the U.S.

Kenney was in four areas of the GTA yesterday, handing out cash totalling $1.9 million to seven community agencies that provide resettlement services in 14 public libraries.

Protesters placed their placards against the windows of a Mississauga immigration office as Kenney spoke to new Canadians inside. [More here.]
