Letter: Protests in support of gov’t that won’t let you protest — crazy

Dear Editor,

If these same protesters were to gather in a public place in Beijing and protest anything, they would be met by a truck-load of police, who would beat them into the ground and destroy their signs. They then would be thrown into jail for disturbing the tranquility of the country. Here, these people are in Canada showing unquestioned support for a government that would not permit them to do the same thing in China.

It is, indeed, a crazy world out there.
