Vancouver’s casserole march featured two seperate casseroles marching from the Vancouver Art Gallery and City Hall to meet in the middle of the Cambie Street Bridge. 100 people came together on the bridge and marched back into Vancouver. The message of “Stop Charest” and “Stop Harper” was enthusiastically supported by passerby who honked horns, took red squares and even joined the march.

For the 2nd week in a row New Westminster, BC joined Casseroles Night in Canada. A larger and much more rhythmic crowd than last week clanged out solidarity. Every one pledged to make next week’s casseroles even bigger.

On June 20th, Simon Fraser University students have organized the event Red Squares Everywhere: Learning from Quebec, with several speakers from ASSÉ and La CLASSE at the Vancouver Art Gallery to be followed by a casserole event.
