Some 50,000 Canadians marched through Montreal this weekend to protest global warming while wearing down jackets and parkas to stave off the freezing weather.

While the CBC noted that protesters had “braved the cold” Saturday to call for better environmental policies, they failed to point out the irony that people were allegedly marching against rising temperatures.

The demonstrators are part of a movement called “The Planet Goes to Parliament,” which seeks to influence politicians to take a stronger stand on anthropogenic climate change. Among those present were several Quebec politicians, including environment minister Isabelle Melancon and Montreal Mayor Valérie Plante.

Nathalie Roy, the spokeswoman for the group, said that the movement was born out of frustration from citizens who felt insufficient attention was paid to climate change during recent provincial elections
