I went to shoot some pics at a protest in downtown Ottawa. It was Civil Service Union protest against the Phoenix Pay System which runs the payments for government workers.
The system has been causing problems for some time with some workers being under or even overpaid. Even overpayments are causing problems with peoples taxes, they also have to pay the money back.
The federal government announced it was looking to replacing the system in the near future. This doesn't solve the workers problems in the short term, hence the protest. Hopefully there will be a solution soon!

I've been a photographer for quite a long time now. So hopefully I have something to say about it.
