What is bothering me most about the G20 Clusterf*ck

I'm trying to figure out what is bothering me most about what happened a few weekends ago in Toronto - the constitutional abuses that took place or the public reaction to those abuses. That those abuses took place I think will be proved and hopefully we will put in safeguards that they don't happen in the future. I'm not sure but I think what is bothering me more than the abuses is that most Canadians think whatever happened was justified .

On Canada day, one woman in a group I belong to from Hamilton, (and who seems to be pretty smart -thanks Gail) posted the quote from Diefenbaker below.

"I am a Canadian, free to speak without fear, free to worship in my own way, free to stand for what I think right, free to oppose what I believe wrong, or free to choose who shall govern my country. This heritage of freedom I pledge to uphold for myself and all mankind."

I don't know very much about Diefenbaker but I like this quote.
