  • Canada's youth vs. Bush

    Iíve never started a thread so I hope this is in the right place as well as it being appropriate.

    As many of you know, Bush is coming to Canada to make a speech on Tuesday. Well, many of the students I attend school with think it would be a great idea to go and protest, not only this but to smoke a joint while doing so. They want to do a kind of ďFill the HillĒ thing like they do on 4 /20. Personally I find this a stupid excuse to smoke pot and also find it quite rude, if you donít like the guy then donít go... or protest in a peaceful way but donít embarrass our country and portray the image that our youth is obsessed with the idea of protesting with the use of illegal narcotics. But I was wondering how you feel?

    I've served this country to give them the exact right to get arrested for stupidity.

          maybe they'll even learn something useful from it, like don't mess with the police

            Yeah but most will grow out of it, adults do the same crap and they have no hope of growing up.

              I heard the kiddies were planning that. Doubt they'll actually get to group on the Hill though. We'll see as the day goes on.

                  He may even miscalculate and slide these weapons off to terrorist groups to invite them to be a surrogate to use them against the United States. Itís the miscalculation that poses the greatest threat-John Kerry

                      It turns out protests were smaller than expected. At its peak, there were no more than 5000 protestors near Parliament Hill, all peaceful. With Martin ordering his Liberals to keep their mouths shut, Carolyn Parrish kicked out of the party, and the NDP noticing the negative backlash from Canadians towards the anti-American remarks of Parrish, it seems Bush should actually have a peaceful visit.

                        Ahh.. it's still disappointing that they had to pull in riot swat and use tear gas. In my opinion i don't find that peaceful, but it may well be One of the more peaceful ones. :)

                              "On Tuesday, Bush dismissed concerns about strained ties between the United States and Canada, thanking those Canadians who turned out to wave "with all five fingers" during his first official visit." LOL Maybe relative to getting the finger by some.
