Jade Sambrook at ‘Pegida Meets Anti-Pegida’

Jade Sambrook at ‘Pegida Meets Anti-Pegida’

Jade Sambrook attended the Anti-Pegida protest against the Pegida group who were scheduled to march through the streets of downtown Montreal. Both groups faced-off in Place Emilie-Gamelin Park before moving into the intersection of Saint-Catherine and Berri Streets. There was a very large police presence as well as many folks from the media. Considering that it was the end of September, the weather was more than pleasant, akin to a beautiful summer day.

The Montreal Police kept both groups apart, and the Anti-Pegida movement was ultimately successful in preventing the Pegida group from marching through the city streets as per their original plan. In fact, this was the second time in less than a year that the Anti-Pegida movement was able to stop the Pegida group from proceeding with their planned march.

The Anti-Pegida group was also successful in getting the message out that Canada and Quebec should be open to receiving more refugees and immigrants so that we may build a country that is more just for all and where everybody can prosper. Canada has always been a country that believes in compassion and fairness. Those are true Canadian values. And the majority of Canadians understand that refugees who come here do so for a better life – a life free from the horrors and war that many of them unfortunately had to witness in their countries of origin.

Canada’s refugee protection programs have helped the world’s most vulnerable, while ensuring the health and safety of Canadians.

Through our refugee protection programs, refugees bring their experiences and skills as well as their hopes and dreams to Canada which, in turn, has contributed to an even richer and more prosperous society for us all – Citizenship & Immigration Canada (CIC).

And just in case you were wondering, the video was filmed using an iPhone 6 with the Filmic Pro App. Additionally, the audio was recorded using a Rode SmartLav+ lavalier microphone.
