Doug Ford protest at City Hall draws huge turnout (PHOTOS)

Wednesday was a rather unusual day at Queen’s Park.

Not only were numerous protestors seated in the public gallery escorted out in handcuffs, the Ontario Government also officially reintroduced the bill slashing Toronto city council nearly in half, which led to every single NDP MPP in Legislature to be kicked out for pounding on their desks to protest Doug Ford.

Tension continued to build in the afternoon when hundreds of demonstrators headed to Toronto City Hall toting signs with messages like “Democracy not dictatorship!” and “Our city! We decide!” to continue protesting Ford’s efforts to revive the bill.

From 4 pm to 6 pm, protestors cheered and chanted alongside a lineup of City Councillors, including Kristyn Wong-Tam, and mayoral candidate Jennifer Keesmaat.

Demonstrators even called on Attorney General Caroline Mulroney to “Stand up for Democracy” by signing a poster of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
