Wifi-Free Wednesday Protest in York Region Nov. 23, 2011 video/news article and pictures (Ontario, Canada)

Today, in Aurora (near Toronto) Ontario there was an anti-Wifi in schools protest outside the York Region District School Board office. The main organizers did 6 telephone interviews today with one scheduled for tomorrow.  CTV, CITY, and CBC sent cameras and reporters.  There were about 40 people, some of whom were children. The protesters were just down the street from the School Board Office at the side of the road near a traffic light. The protesters had sandwich board signs set up at either side of the Board Office driveway, lawn signs along the road, hand held signs, plus handouts for the public. Some people honked their car horn in support as they drove past.
 
The York Region Parents are encouraging other parents groups across Canada and worldwide to participate in Wifi-Free Wednesday.
 
Here is another news story.  Apparently, some people are complaining that their comments, which are supportive of the protesters are being 'lost' in moderation without being posted.  Unfortunately, this gives a very unbalanced view of public opinion.
