Eastern Ontario Rural Revolution

In Eastern Ontario there is a revolution being carried on by rural residents against growing 
bureaucratic control of privately owned land. 

On February 4, 2005 the "Stop the Destruction " convoy reached  Prescott Ontario. 

Canada's busiest Highway 401 and the International Bridge  at Johnstown Ontario to the USA 
were closed for 3 hours by 270 vehicles and 50 tractors in show of the demonstration of rural dissatisfaction. 

The people who make their living on their own private properties were really angry at both the 
federal and provincial governments.  They demanded first and foremost 
property rights inserted in the constitution.

Here are some of the images recorded by tdc's FarmGate.
