So what can be done about this common nuisance? I would personally suggest that when a cop says "move or get a ticket and or get arrested" to someone "filming" them and if the person filming or taking pictures or even simply observing is not interfering with their work, the reply to said cop should be "do you want to do 2 years in jail?"

@PeterSchiefke of the Liberal Party speaks to the protesters.
Les libéraux veulent nous faire croire que les hydrocarbures sont une bonne solution à l'austérité. À nous de leur rappeler que l'austérité est un choix politique. Refusons de financer nos services publics par la destruction de notre environnement. The Liberals want us to believe that hydrocarbons are a good solution to austerity. It's up to us to remind them that austerity is a political choice. Refuse to fund our public services by the destruction of our environment.
