According to the Liberal government, after spending billions on convention centres, 10 lane bridges, Olympic Security, the Canada Line, etc., etc. there isn't any money left for frivolities such as school music programmes and libraries.
The Carnival Band joined the Drive Street Band to play some tunes and march in a protest against school budget cuts.
There is no question we were heard, the question is, 'will we be ignored?'
The rest of the images from todays rally can be seen in our flickr pool

b) the Art Relations (8:00 p.m.)
On Thursday regular time slots were replaced by the 35th Anniversary Extravaganza.

Alexis and Cory
On Thursday evening the band played for the Homeless Soccer fundraising event held at the Rickshaw.
The PFC (Portland Football Club) Homeless Soccer Team hopes to raise enough money to take the team to South America for the Homeless Soccer World Championships.
Roisin and John Cl.
The evening wasn't without surprises. On a whim Marc invited the band to come down the street to CFRO, 102.7, Co-op Radio to play a couple of tunes on air.
Fred, Eddie, Roisin and Fearless Leader (Tim)
When the dust settled the band had played four tunes on Marc's show, and Fred, Eddie, Marc, Roisin, Wayne, Tim and Ross squeezed into the studio to jaw with Marc for 10 minutes or so.
