Global Warming Protest Impaired By Snow Storm

From the November 16, 2013 Calgary Sun, news coverage of a protest against oil sands development:
Chantal Chagnon with the Idle No More movement, said they’re trying to get the attention of the energy industry and the Canadian Parliament to the growing global opposition to “pipelines, tar sands expansions and other polices that contribute to runaway climate change.”
“We’re seeing theeffects of global warming and we can’t keep denying it because obviously something is happening,” Chagnon said.
It would have been a bigger demonstration, but:
Originally about 300 people were slated to participate in the Calgary protest, but due to a snow storm only about 50 showed up.
I don't know when it normally starts snowing in Calgary, but mid-November?

Calgary is one of those places where the snow can fall in July and August. Or when a chinook hits in February, it can go from -15F to +50F in a couple hours.

Cheers

I think that's called "the Gore effect."
