Small group mistaken for coloured vest rally

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.
