Haiti and the CAPP Rallies

I came across a tweet this morning that I've had a hard time wrapping my head around.

How could any Canadian suppose that participating in a CAPP rally today would in any way signify the diminished importance of the Haiti disaster?

To me, the very extent of the disaster bespeaks how vital it is that Canadians protest the actions of government. The prior treatment of Haiti by Canada (not to mention the very real possibility of further exploitation) provides more reason, not less, for raising our voices against the erosion of our democracy.
