Michael Moore lauds rogue page
Quietly hoisting a ‘Stop Harper’ sign in the midst of the Throne Speech may have cost Brigette DePape her job, but the protest has gained her some fans in the U.S., including rabble-rousing filmmaker Michael Moore.
Mr. Moore has spent the weekend gushing over the 21-year-old rogue page. On Sunday, he posted a big photo of Ms. DePape carrying out her act of civil disobedience on his website above a bold red headline: “Canada Gets Warmer.”
“For a young person to do that and to do it peacefully, and quietly and with grace, I thought it was a very powerful moment,” Mr. Moore said in a statement on his website. “Every now and then there is an iconic moment where an individual takes action, and it inspires others … I think that Canada and Canadians probably need to put aside the full respect thing and get to work on preventing their government from turning into a version of ours.” (Photo: Chris Wattie/Reuters)
