During the 1980s peace movement, the Vancouver Peace March once attracted 50,000 protesters at its peak for an annual walk across Burrard Bridge to support global nuclear disarmament.
Right-wing commentators sought to discredit these protests by focusing on the most radical protestors, then painting all other protestors with the same brush. This approach largely failed and was mocked by the press, which showed the diversity of protesters and homemade signs as a sign of the depth of the movement’s support.
