A video & message from the CTF
We took the National Debt Clock to the Conservative Party Convention this past Thursday as a friendly reminder to the Prime Minister, MPs and party delegates that their government is still overspending by $1,024 per second (Read: time to roll up the sleeves and control spending in order to meet the 2014 balanced budget commitment).
However, many delegates didn’t see it that way reporting the vehicle as “suspicious” resulting in the Ottawa police detaining both the clock and CTF staff. Incredibly, the CTF’s clock and vehicle were subjected to inspection by a bomb squad — but found the only thing exploding was the federal debt!
Perhaps it should come as no surprise that when it came to nutty protesters the Ottawa Police were all too willing to accommodate including blocking off an entire city street so they could cart around signs inviting people to “beat back the Tory attack” — far less “suspicious” than the National Debt Clock.
