Jon Stewart’s rally, Toronto branch

From the website of Democrats Abroad:

On the September 16 episode of The Daily Show, Jon Stewart announced his “Rally to Restore Sanity,”scheduled for October 30, 12 noon – 3 p.m., at National Mall in Washington, D.C., just three days before the U.S. Mid-term Election Day. Stephen Colbert announced his “Keep Fear Alive” rally the same day, time and place as Stewart’s.

To support these dueling rallies, the Toronto chapter of Democrats Abroad Canada will host a satellite rally for American citizens living here, to help Restore Sanity and Keep Fear Alive. One of dozens in the U.S. and around the world, the Toronto rally will be held at Spirits Bar & Restaurant, 642 Church St., just south of Bloor East, west side of Church Street, 11:30 a.m to 4:00 p.m.

A day of fun and serious mockery, Toronto chapter members will be celebrating the fact that 80 per cent of Americans are actually very reasonable people who do not shout at one another. Canadian themed signs include “Canada supports American Sanity-We Have Universal Healthcare” and “Take it down a notch America; we’re trying to sleep up here in Canada.”

(See and

Did you see President Obama with Jon Stewart last night? There he was on a Comedy Channel mock-news program, a dignified, articulate, extremely intelligent and thoughtful leader, nearly buried in slanderous rhetoric and vicious politics.

Jon Stewart has been voted by the on-line website as “the most important man in America.”
