Any other protesters would be sitting in jail by now

I’d really like to know why the current Indigenous pipeline blockades aren’t being broken up by the authorities (RCMP and whoever else should be doing it) when these protests aren’t even licensed and, more to the point, aren’t even legal.

If it were me or any other Canadians doing this, we’d be sleeping on a cot in a small, cold room behind bars in a heartbeat.

Just the mere fact that people going to work, and possibly, emergency vehicles trying to reach people in distress, are being blocked by these idiots, should constitute reasonable cause for their removal.

This political correctness has to stop and this might be the best possible scenario for it to start stopping right here.

Bobbie Norman, Airdrie
