Is this making news across the country? It's the movement started on the Prairies with all kinds of flashmobs, road and rail blockades and protests here there and everywhere... I won't get into the political debate side of it, although I will say I feel the whole message has been completely lost as I have spent significant time trying to find out why they are upset, with no real idea of what's going on. Dh seems to think it's somehow environmentally based, but the upset comes from the rights to land and $$. I'm very confused.

But have you been effected by any blockades or protests in your area?

We had a lot of family members late to our Christmas celebration because #1 Hwy traffic was re-routed to make space for one of their blockades, and I have changed shopping plans twice because protests etc were being held in the city and I don't have patience to deal with that.

Not that I paid much attention, but at least I partially understood the Occupy movement last year... I'm just generally irritated by this.
