Photos: Hold the line rally reprise

...also, if this rally sounds familiar, it's because Council already decided this issue back in June. There was even a rally, on May 12th:

A number of councillors were at last year's rally, and many of them spoke. Councillors Cullen and Jellett were both in the crowd at the rally today.
