Edmonton - "Remember, remember the fifth of November." Guy Fawkes Day also marked the Million Mask March against government corruption.
Marches were held around the world on the same date to protest government corruption, everywhere, in all forms. Otherwise, there was no specific agenda or list of issues being protested. When speaking to several participants in Edmonton, they also discussed such topics as fluoride being added to drinking water without consent, the dangers of eating genetically modified foods, and the need for a new federal administration. "It's not one thing - it's everything" sported one of the placards being carried under the cloak of darkness on this early November evening.
