Continuing the discussion from CBC warns Canadians: US cops will pull you over and steal your money:
There’s one exception to that. Organized protests, especially those involving land claims.
What do you think would happen to a group of Occupy protesters who blockaded train tracks?
Or a group that occupied a subdivision under construction.
I’m not saying that the cops should put on riot gear and break up the protests, I’m saying that that’s what they would do if it was any other group. This also seems to be a recent change. I think there might have been a change in policy after Dudley George was shot and killed by the cops at Ipperwash.
