There wasn’t a huge turnout. It could be that this is one of the "lessor days" of protest (compared to the anniversary of the Iraq war, for example). Also, I’m thinking with Obama in office, and a deadline for Canada to end combat operations in Afghanistan, there’s a lot less popular anger about Canada and U.S. military policy.
The Canadian Peace Alliance organized protests across Canada against involvement in the war in Afghanistan on April 4, 2009. Calgarians gathered at Tomkins Park (17 Avenue and 8 Street SW). It happened to be the same place as an unrelated public pillow fight.
