The coffee meet-and-greet on Saturday, May 18 was supposed to be low-key. MPP Sam Oosterhoff was scheduled to show up at the Grimsby branch of the Canadian legion at 9 A.M., where constituents could show up with questions or concerns or just to say hello. A group of abortion activists, however, had other plans, none of which involved actually asking questions or expressing concerns in polite or civilized manner. Enraged by Oosterhoff’s recent speech at the Toronto March for Life, they decided to show their displeasure.
A few dozen men and women descended on the legion hall, chanting and shouting. Several of them sported the white bonnets and long red dresses of Margaret Atwood’s The Handmaid’s Tale, which delusional abortion activists lacking in both literacy and observation skills have decided is a pro-life parable. They ended up being the best-dressed ones there — one woman went entirely topless, presumably to protest objectification.
