NORTH BAY — Nine people who all showed up to the Fraser St. Twigg’s were mistaken for a rally Saturday afternoon.
According to eyewitness accounts, “at least” 9 people all appeared at the coffee roasters wearing blue shirts, hoodies, and coats.
Witness Kayleigh Rose recounted the event.
“I was ordering a medium dark roast and as I was waiting I noticed I was surrounded by blue shirts.”
Rose says she asked one of them what they were protesting, but was met with a blank stare.
“I asked a blue shirt what they were upset about. Was it immigration? Trudeau? Carbon tax? The overreaching, cloven-footed United Nations? Brown people?”
“But he said he was just there for a bagel.”
Despite being a coincidence, the unofficial “Blue Shirt Rally” still had more attendees than North Bay’s first “Yellow Vest Protest,” the city’s first tentative step into the murky waters of public fear-mongering.
