Greetings all,

I don't wish to be pedantic, but the numbers in the streets were far greater
than 100,000. The police and corporate media have deliberately attempted to
misrepresent the amount of people participating in this great day. It was
by far the largest political demo. in Ontario and Canadian history! The
reliable estimates are around 300,000 participants in the march to the
provincial legislature on Oct.26.
