Quebec City Anti-Austerity Arrests

over 300 arrested for peacefully marching in Quebec, a city of a half million. Nothing in the mainstream news, of course.

Laws regulating protests in Canada give the police a lot of discretion in deciding, first, what assemblies are peaceful, and second, when peaceful protests are not allowed.
Quote:
There is no absolute freedom of assembly in Canada. First, the Charter itself limits it by guaranteeing only "peaceful" assembly. That's why the government can restrict certain kinds of assembly that it considers not peaceful. Such restrictions do not infringe on the Charter freedom of assembly unless the courts disagree with the government's interpretation of what's "peaceful."
Seems there was someone who said how a country (specifically Saudi Arabia) abided by its laws wasn't our business. He didn't care of human rights abuses because it's Saudi law and the people should just shut up and take it. (Paraphrasing, of course.)

Canada is actually a free country with elected representatives and its citizen's votes actually matter; whereas Saudi Arabia is a monarchy with no power for the people.

So, why the concern over this issue? After all, it's Canadian law and the people there are able to change it if they don't like it.

Re: Quebec City Anti-Austerity Arrests

well, good points. i never meant to imply that i didn't care about human rights issues, anywhere; even KSA, halfway around the world. But Canada is quite a bit closer to home--right across a bridge, for me. Also possibly a case of knowingly breaking the law v peacefully protesting. This one surprises me, because it just doesn't fit with my perception of most Canadians.

also, i often argue points just to present the other side of an unbalanced argument--i would most likely be the biggest troublemaker in KSA

Once the establishment gains control then wresting back that control from said establishment is almost impossible without confrontation.

Welcome to socialism.

Coming to a US city near you.

well, we were warned, in 1Sam8. So now a believer is inevitably drawn in to the world, in taking a side.

Oh yeah, definitely a correlation between Quebec City Anti-Austerity Arrests and 1st Samuel 8.
