From the article...
"Mr. Cheney accepted an invitation to speak in Vancouver from a local book club. Approximately 250 men and women gathered outside the Vancouver Club to protest his visit. “We’re very angry that he has chosen Vancouver as the first location outside of the United States to do a book tour event,” one protest organizer told reporters, “and we feel it’s important that citizens of Vancouver show that we won’t tolerate a war criminal coming and speaking in our town…We hope to set an example that Cheney doesn’t see Canada as a safe haven.”
As far as I know he hasn't been convicted of a crime and Canada still has the freedom of speech (sort of).
"We hope to set an example that Cheney doesn’t see Canada as a safe haven.”
We can see that!
ONE [/B]death is too many.
Well, I just watched the evening news and these protestors impeded the ability of those who wanted to see Cheney to reach the venue, so I think a person's right to protest end when he/she starts impeding other's rights like (of assembly)
You should know by now that freedom of speech is only for the lefties and ultra-libs. All speech that they do not agree with must be silenced at all costs. And yes, even if it infringes on other people's rights.
Which terrorist organizations sanctioned such events? Give names so we can lambaste them.
The U.S. was not the only country selling Iraq weapons during the Iraq/Iran war, Russia, China, Cuba, plus most of Europe. But for some reason I do not see you picking on them.
