On Wednesday the 25th, activists staged a sit-in at the office of federal labour minister Rona Ambrose. The ten people were members of Citizens for Climate Justice. They remained in Ambrose’s Edmonton office for seven hours demanding action on climate change from the Harper government.

Sam Power brings us this awesome piece.
