A small crowd rang out the vocal chords during the “Harperman” rally Thursday afternoon at the Nelson City Hall Courtyard.

The event was part of a nation-wide sing-a-long of the song that critiques the Conservative government’s record.

The “Harperman” sing-a-long in Nelson was led by Keith Wiley.

The song “Harperman” was written by Tony Turner, an Ottawa folk musician who is also a a migratory bird specialist at Environment Canada.

The recording accuses the PM of muzzling scientists and suppressing freedom of the press, among other criticisms.

The government said Turner’s song represents a breach of the ethics code, according to his union, the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada.

The nation-wide rally also found a sing-a-long spot on Parliament Hill.

Hundreds of people showed up to sing “Harperman”.
