Oh Canada! "Free Speech Areas" to be defined for 2010 Olympics
Read it on the CBC!
I am sure they'll be near the arctic circle, if they don't arrest people for applying for a "permit to protest." Add to it the recently filed lawsuit against the RCMP going by known protesters' houses and telling them "we're watching you" and this is taking on a whole new dimension. Tasering with abandon is nothing new, but the subtle intimidation has eluded authorities in Canada for some time. Now they're brazen enough to flaunt it on the CBC.
Jokes aside, this paints a frightening picture of the "authorities" and their opinion on what criticisms they should face.
