The Protesters today are terrorists. There is Freedom of Speech in this Country. But, they threw that right out when they began to vandalize and destroy property. They all taunted and threatened civilians. Notice that yesterday the police and general public of Vancouver allowed the protesters their democratic right. Well, they certainly pissed that away this morning. Strong work. You really got your message across. That your idiots unable to communicate intelligently or with any sort of class.

Who cares if someone, or two thousand people were involed in breaking the window that contained the deeply offensive and fallacious Olympic display?

Nobody that is posting here lives next door, nor do the vast majority of you shop there or at the Bay at all, so why the outrage? Isn't your anger misplaced, misguided, and fake?

Is the Hudson's bay company not just another corporation that has raped Canada of its resources for what amounts to hundreds of years now?

what is tenthousand dollars to a corp of that size who can just use it as yet another way to cheat our government out of tax revenue?

Nobody should care one way or the other about the Hudson's Bay robber baron's, or their window that we were going to have to pay for one way or another, sooner or later anyways.

People who do not protest are the stain not the other way around, worship those willing to stick there neck out, not jocks.

I'm from Vancouver. I find these protesters disgusting. They are a stain on vancouver. Their actions are disgusting. I plan on hampering their activities with my friends. We will do anything we can to block their activities and make protesting a HARD thing to do. I will exercise my rights of expression and try to get them to become violent. Then deal with them accordingly.

Equating all protesters and the reasons why they are there with the few hooligans who cause trouble only serves to show how uneducated you are. For god's sake there are dumbasses at every large gathering who do this kind of stuff. If I recall there were rioters destroying stuff at a Vancouver hockey game. The sad fact that you are not even aware of is that many of the privileges and rights you have are a direct result of protest and social action. Wake up sheeple.

The best was on friday when a reporter asked one of the protest organizers as too why they need to wear balaclavas for a peaceful protest. Her response was "What balaclavas? I do not see any one wearing those" the reporter then said "That guy there, that guy there, and you have one around your neck..."

Bold statement there Roy Ennis, notice you blame 'undercover police' as the cause of the riots, and not the professional anarchists who show up no matter what the event in order to cause trouble.

Nice grasp of reality, the two smashing the Hudson Bay windows were female and just more than a little appealing because of what appeared to be high fructose corn syrup free bodies and therefore more pure than any and all of you combined. What could be more appealling than feamle anarchist with more testicular fortitude than all of you but a few here.

The men here are duds, it seems any invading army such as the OIC for instance is met with open arms instead of contempt,nice backbone servants.

I am not sure what is wrong with my son Jimmy, but he knows better than to challenge the wisdom of someone like chuck. My apolgies Chuck I will put Jimmy over my knee when he gets home. :)

Roy Ennis (where is your proof of this?)

In just about any big event in the world there are protesters. The violent ones get what they deserve.
