Thousands rally in support of teachers in Vancouver and across the province. In Prince George teachers and parents joined forces to protest Minister Bond’s inactivity outside her constituency office. Here in Vancouver thousands gathered at Canada Place to listen to Jinny Sims and other Labour Leaders speak.
From our vantage point near the entrance to the Pan Pacific Hotel it wasn’t possible to see the speakers themselves through the large crowd. However, we could hear very clearly the passion, dedication, and commitment of Jinny Sims as she addressed the many people gathered in support of teachers.
Just in the small area around us I estimated that there were several hundred people. Why hard to guess from my particular vantage point I would hazard that somewhere between 4 and 5 thousand people were crowded into the plaza in front of Canada Place.
