Bush in Montreal: demonstration in front of Queen Elizabeth Hotel

World Wide Panorama, a project from the University of California Berkeley

Thursday Oct. 22, former U.S. president George W. Bush faced a demonstration against his presence in Canada for an event organized by the city’s chamber of commerce at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel. Ironically, this is the same place where 40 years ago, John Lennon and Yoko Ono held their famous one week bed-in and recorded the anti-war anthem “Give peace a chance”. Inside, nearly a thousand people paid $400 each to hear Bush speak while on the outside a riot squad in full gear and several horseback police officers held back a crowd of shoe-tossing protesters who were accusing G.W. Bush of war crimes and torture.

Solstice of the Nations at the Parc du Mont Royal

World Wide Panorama, a project from the University of California Berkeley

The drum salutes the sun at the summer solstice on Canada’s National Aboriginal Day. The ceremony, first celebrated in 1996, is held all across Canada. In 2007 First Nations leaders and dignitaries from different levels of the Canadian government gathered to celebrate the Solstice of the Nations. Innus from the Uashat-Maliotenam community, lit a fire that was passed to the organizers of the Fête Nationale du Québec to bring together and create stronger bonds of friendship, between the peoples of Québec.
