Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall continued their tour in Quebec Tuesday with a visit to the Montreal Biodome, but their trip to the Blackwatch armory on de Bleury St. was postponed as riot police tried to calm protesters in front.MontrealGazette
About 70 riot police cleared the street in front of the armoury to clear the way for the arrival of the Royal couple. Two protesters have been arrested and about 150 others have been pushed up the street. Protesters carrying Quebec and Patriote flags had gathered across the street from the front entrance by 4 pm in preparation for the Royal couple's 5:30 pm arrival.

I am not a fan of royalty either but you would not catch me protesting the visit of royals. I wonder if these same protestors would come out in force if the Iranian madjacket or other similar madmen happened to be visiting their city. What silliness, what stupidity! Why do French Canadians go out of their way to show that they are different from the rest of us? Is it an inferiority or a superiority complex?
