At the Alberta Legislature

Homeschooler's protest to amend Bill 2
Originally uploaded by amkb

Today, the girls and I walked over to the Alberta Legislature to take part in a protest to have a proposed bill that would affect homeschoolers amended. The photo I took with my phone and posted previously was taken about half an hour before everything was set to start. By the time things got going, an estimated 350 people were there, with more coming in during the hour it took place. At its height, there were an estimated 500 people. Some drove 6 hours to attend.

Of course, being homeschoolers, there are a LOT of kids there of all ages. I can't help but notice the very polite sign being held by several of them at the front. :-D
