March New

It was a spectacular day for the Climate March in Montreal inspired by the sixteen year old Greta Thunberg who came into the limelight when a year ago she took to the steps of the Swedish parliament with a homemade cardboard sign to take a stand against climate change and global warming.
Uncounted millions have now marched world wide because of that (once) obscure Swedish teenager skipping school repeatedly to sit alone outside the Swedish parliament with her simple protest sign.

I arrived to take part an hour early at the starting location of the lovely Jeanne-Mance Park on the eastern side of Mount Royal in the Plateau area.
At that time the park was quite empty and I worried that the march was to be a fizzle.
