If you don't think one person can make a difference, think again. Watch this.
The Senate page who held up a "Stop Harper" sign during last week's throne speech is getting high praise from the king of the political shock protest.
Filmmaker Michael Moore is apparently a big fan of Brigette DePape, 21.
The young woman stepped into the political spotlight Friday when she looked straight at the cameras and held up a handmade sign, designed in the shape of a red stop sign.
She was briskly removed from the Senate chamber and detained by security officials for over an hour before being released without charges. She was also immediately fired.
Page has criticized the Harper government for its priorities and stance on environmental issues.
"I think that we really need to stop Harper's agenda and people need to take to the streets and Canada needs an Arab Spring," she said after her stunt.
Moore, famous for such documentaries as Bowling for Columbine, Roger & Me and Fahrenheit 9/11, was reportedly impressed enough to offer her a job.
