In Montreal, Canada, about 500 people protested today against embattled Egyptian leader Hosni Mubarak. About a week ago a protest was held in Toronto. Mubarak continues to receive pressure to step down as protests around the globe take place.
Joining Egyptian nationals in the Montreal protest were additional groups of Tunisians and Algerians, as well as leaders from the Quebec and Amnesty International. Throughout Canada, similar events were also planned for Quebec, Ottawa, Halifax and Vancouver.
