Thousands of people attended rallies in towns and cities across Canada on January 23rd to speak out against Prime Minister Stephen Harper's decision to suspend Parliament until March. At a rally in Halifax, the crowd of about 500 chanted anti-Harper slogans outside the legislature. Retiree Hazel Hanson said Parliament should have been leading the charge on a variety of important matters -- not shutting down. (About two-thousand people gathered on Parliament Hill where NDP leader Jack Layton called on Harper to open the doors. Other protests were held in Vancouver, Edmonton and Toronto.)
