Mr. Floatie, the environmental champion

Saw this great entry in The Poutine Diaries:
"A man dressed up as a giant piece of faeces has been refused entry to a government meeting in Canada.

James Skwarok arrived as 'Mr Floatie' to represent POOP, People Opposed to Outfall Pollution, reports

But the cross-party meeting in Victoria-Beacon Hill refused him entry.

Skwarok said he wanted to protest against the daily dumping of 120 million litres of raw sewage into the Pacific ocean.

He said he was 'a little bummed out' by the politicians' refusal to meet him and that British Columbia province should look good for the 2010 Olympics if it didn't want to get a 'brown medal'."

I think we need to follow this example of creativity if we want to win the media war.
