Thousands joined actions across Canada in the biggest coordinated action since the anti‑war protests in 2003.
Every province saw protests—but the biggest were in the cities of Toronto, Vancouver, Montreal and Ottawa.
In Toronto a mass meeting in the financial district, Bay Street, was followed by a march through the city centre.
Young people and students dominated the event, many of them first-time protesters. But there were people of all ages and backgrounds.
Indigenous First Nations activists led the march. Anti-war activists marched to join it from a peace conference.
Toronto’s St James Park was taken over by protesters camping out.
