Protesting the Anti-Muslim Anti-Immigration protesters in Vancouver

Today's anti Muslim - anti immigration protest at City Hall was countered by an estimated 4,000 Vancouverites who believe in the value of inclusion.

As usual there were some terrific signs! One of my favourites said "No Alt-Reich".
