43 Ottawa ACORN members attended the kick off rally for Digital Access, fighting for $10/month internet regulation with subsidized computers on Thursday (April 17). Press included: Ottawa Sun, Ottawa Citizen, CBC Radio, Radio-Canada Television, CBC Television, CTV, CFRA, 1310 News, EMC Community News South, and Le Droit. We then marched 10k around the city taking us 2.5 hours, stopping at Minister James Moore's office towards the end. The minister's office refused to come down, even with the media present. The rally and march was led by board members Kat Fortin and Robert Fitzpatrick.
21 Members crossed the finish line tired but feeling proud of their accomplishments. Members who completed the 10 for 10 will receive special recognition at a later leadership ceremony.
