Today was another sunny day at Occupy Nova Scotia, but, rather than soak up the rays, the occupiers decided to confront capitalism head-on with a "Tour de Finance". The Tour was a protest rally / walking tour of the big five in Canadian Banking, which are: Royal Bank, TD, Scotia Bank, BMO, and CIBC. The protestors left the square with support from the labour movement, anti-poverty groups, and interested members of the public. They took to the streets to express their frustration with the banking sector in Canada, and the Canadian Government's penchant for giving them money.

The audio is the opening address by Kyle Buott, president of the Halifax - Dartmouth District Labour Council, who asks what would you do with the $19.3 billion in 2010 profits from the Canadian banking sector?

 

Disclosure: Palmira has been known to hang around Parade Square, pipe up at GA's and even hold a placard or two.
