Bush visits Canton report
by elle Monday, Aug. 02, 2004 at 2:06 PM

Saturday July 31

In Canton more than 125 protesters were outside the Canton Memorial Civic Center Saturday voicing their dissent. Bush arrived to his scheduled speaking appearance 90 minutes late. He was late due to two unscheduled stops at the Cleveland Browns training camp and then in Fairlawn to pick up 10 Timken workers before heading to canton.
Among the protestors lining Market Avenue North was Scott Albertson , a steel worker from Perry Township for 23 years and one of the 1,150 unionized Timken Co. bearing division workers whose jobs may be lost in a planned plant shut-down. He stated, “The people protesting on this street are a testament to how people in this country are hurting under this administration.” Bush stated in his speech, “I’m out asking for your vote. I’m out asking for your help.” It leaves me to ask the question where is his help for the lives torn apart over the past four years?
signs at the protest in Canton included:
“Hey Bush my kid is in Iraq, Is yours?”
The Iron workers held signs reading: “Where are the jobs George?”
