Canada passing a law that says that if you wear a mask at a Riot, you go to jail for 5 years.  

Better not use hate speech or you will tack on another 5 years. 

Link 

Now our neighbors to the north can be imprisoned for mere speech or wearing a mask.

To be convicted, offender must cause injury or damages.  Simply, wearing a mask isn't enough.  Participating in a riot or illegal protest is currently a crime punishable by up to 2 years in jail.  But concealing identity may increase term as in other crimes such as bank robberies.  This law helps police and neighbourhoods in dealing with violence..

This is kind of silly...but how do you eventually catch the guy wearing a mask?

perhaps the offense will be grounds for immediate arrest.

If you wear a mask in a protest that is not sanctioned, and the police come to start busting skulls and one trips over his shoelaces and bloodies his elbow, you are guilty of being in an arbitrarily deemed "illegal protest" where an injury happened. 

Anyone think this is a direct shot at Anonymous?  I do. 

Hope nothing bad happens to Canadian websites as a result.

According to Disco, you don't have any crime in Canada because you have stricter gun laws....

Peaceful protests are acceptable in Canada.  However riots are violent and unacceptable. Police injury example is irrelevant because riots start BEFORE the police arrive to protect people and property.

The violence at G20 summit could have been avoided if the police would have done their job and arrested them but they got away

I dislike how the word conservative seems to be interchangeable with authoritarian, or fascist,  our authoritarian liberal president proves that there needs to be a change in the verbiage.

Why don't you talk to the CONSERVATIVE government that are trying to pass this gross infringement of free speech and common sense. 

I'm no bigger a fan of these misguided and uninformed neo-cons than you are rick. This is taking a page out of the GOP playbook of using 'current events' and fear mongering to pass these types of ridiculous laws.

Glad that this is getting attention. What a joke. These clowns will be voted out at the first opportunity.

Interesting point regarding Anonymous. I think they are targeting OWS but there isn't much of a difference really. Plus if you have been paying attention the Cons have run afoul of some Anons lately... Hardly big fans to say the least.

Not really necessayr for manifesto destiny.  Americans already own much Canadian stocks and real estate.  Also huge influence on Canadian government.  When the elephant and mouse share the same bed, the mouse knows it.
