MORE BACKLASH: Quebec Protests Are Now Mob Rule

Protesters claim the new emergency law, Bill 78, is an infringement on their right of free assembly. Nonsense. I was involved in a series of marches a number of years ago in downtown Montreal, in which the organizers worked with police weeks in advance. This was out of concern for those who would be affected by these marches. These boycotters do not care what harm they cause others. Their attitude is "You have to respect my rights, but I don't have to respect yours."

On Tuesday evening, just before midnight, I was assaulted by a police officer. No warning, no explanation, just a swift swing of a nightstick to the back of my leg. The officer chasing after me threw me into a parked van. I am not a student, I don't wear a red square, and I am not on strike. This is Montreal under Bill 78.
