Later-morning visitors to the Guelph Farmers' Market Saturday experienced an extra dose of Guelph this weekend.
In addition to the unique Guelph market experience, there was a very Guelph-development outside the facility.
At around 10 a.m., a rally of sorts -- complete with large banners -- came about to express concerns about the Line 9 project and 'Tar Sands' development generally. The peaceful but police observed event popped up just outside the market's front entrance.
Then, not too many minutes later, the same space hosted the start of a rally event to express concerns about the federal government's Fair Elections Act. Again, it was peaceful, featured significant signage.
