Close the door, jail a few student protesters under federal law and move on..
Guess you missed it ... The students are on strike until there is an acceptable settlement negotiated. The government is refusing to negotiate. The universities and colleges are very worried about losing an academic year. Harper hasn't figured out a way to 'legislate' students back to class yet.
(education is a provincial jurisdiction) Charest is trying to demonize one of the student groups (divide and conquer), but the three groups are sticking together.
You can't jail people just for protesting. (freedom of speech and assembly are rights, not crimes)
I assume police are arresting those vandalizing bank windows, etc, when they can, some of whom are protesting and some may be just taking advantage of the situation.
But that won't stop the protests.
Protests are legal.
Do you have any viable suggestions?
