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 and marketing practices been carried out
by vendors of Farmers' Markets.

On October 6, 2005 the Leeds and Grenville Chapter of the Rural Revolution protested against Ontario
Health Units imposing unfair safety regulations and targeting Farmers' Markets in Eastern Ontario.

The protestors set up a Farmers' Market across the street from the Health Unit building in
Brockville Ontario from 8.00 am until noon.

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