"Harper gets an earful from students: 'Surprise, we are voting'"

Via The Globe & Mail:

"It looked like a scene from Braveheart, with more than 250 University of Guelph students standing on a hill overlooking Stephen Harper’s campaign stop in the southwestern Ontario city Monday.

Soaking from the pouring rain, the students carried a banner reading: “Surprise. We are voting.” They chanted, “We will vote.”

The rally was billed as "non-partisan", but given the slogan and the voting trends amongst Canadian youth, the event and the message intended wasn't likely terribly supportive of Harper & his party.
