OTTAWA -- The crowd of about 300 at today's rally on Parliament Hill in support of "net neutrality" was well behaved, but placards clearly indicated their feelings on the issue.

Some of the more notable signs being waved by the crowd:

  • Stop deep packet rape
  • Save the internet
  • Say no to big brother watching you
  • Keep your hands outta my packets
  • Citizens of canada or subjects of bell canada?
