Toronto gets its Irish up


The auditorium at the Ontario Institute For Studies in Education (OISE) in Toronto was filled with Irish nationalism on Saturday.

Posters with photos of men and women such as Michael Collins, an Irish revolutionary leader and Bobby Sands, a hunger striker who was elected into the British government in the 1980s, were spread, among other Irish nationalists, along the stage.

At the podium in the middle of the stage, with a large white banner across the front stood, a bearded man with glasses and a thick Northern Irish accent.
