Calgary gave American right-wing commentator Ann Coulter a mostly warm welcome recently with a scattering of protesters outnumbered by the nearly 1,000 people who paid to hear her speak.

Coulter would be expected to draw fewer protesters in Calgary because that is basically Conservative Party country and they are probably closer to her beliefs than any other group in the country.

According to Shannon Montgomery of The Canadian Press, security personnel at the Red and White Club, a University of Calgary-owned venue, said that about 20 protesters broke a window while banging on the door during Coulter's speech.

They held signs. One of them said "Calgary is Cold to Coulter." A small child's sign read, "I don't have a camel or a flying carpet, can you lend me your broomstick?" -- a reference to a comment Coulter made earlier this week to a Muslim woman at a university in London, Ont.

According to the Montgomery account:

"The scene was vastly different than the one Coulter faced in Ottawa a few days earlier, and she remarked how she felt so much safer and that she knew it would be the best of the three stops she made in Canada.

"The audience gave a huge cheer when Coulter proposed making Calgary the 51st of the United States.

"She said Canada was the least diverse country she's seen -- which brought objections from the audience, but she pointed out that everyone in the crowd looked like she did.
