I've noticed this more and more in the past few years, in politics: Accuse your enemy of what YOUR guilt is. A prime example of this is during Obama's first campaign in 2008, the Republicans kept accusing him of wanting to end Medicare and Social Security, and wanting to "push grandma off a cliff." And this was AFTER Bush started advocating privatizing SS!
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, which is a real danger when all the stupid people who believed your name-calling get together and gang up on me . . . " Okay, I kind of "re-did" that one.

Your signature has been recorded.
Absolutely signed. The 1% doesn't have a moral leg to stand on. The reason why they have to stoop to lies and dirty tactics is because the TRUTH WILL NOT SET THEM FREE. They are terrified of the truth and that is what the protesters are telling.

signed. Nothing like using the knee jerk buzz word of "terrorist". A few years ago, they would have been called "communists", a few hundred years ago..."heretics" and waaay back in cave man times "lunch".
Guaranteed to stir up the Fox news ant hill and the morons that watch it. After the 6th beer of the night ANYTHING activists are called makes sense to the viewers.

"Terrorist" is a loaded word these days. Which is, of course, why it's being used against people whose intent is the farthest thing from terrorism. Sickening! None of the parties truly deserves that title, and certainly not the activists, whose goal is to promote only peace among all creatures, species (animal and plant), and within all biospheres.

Seriously, terrorists? These people are not in the same category as the scum that bombed Boston or the ones who flew their planes into the WTC. Animal/environmental rights activists have no blood on their hands...unlike a real terrorist.

Just shows how far right our stinking republican er Tory government has gone. There is little difference between Harper, Bashir(Syria) and Erdogan(Turkey) - we're almost ashamed of being identified as Canadians. This isn't the wonderful country we chose with this creature and cronies in power

Mike and Janis, I sympathize, but don't sell yourselves short, you're still one of the best places on Earth, despite the Harper Hooligans, except for your weather. Please keep the Alberta Clipper up there where it belongs. ;o)

What amazes me is that the police seem to be willing goons for the corporations. Don't these people live in the same places as the activists? Don't they face the same environmental issues for themselves and their children? Don't they have minds of their own? To claim that they are just doing their jobs or doing as they were told to do does not hold up. This argument was tried at the Nuremberg trails and was not accepted then. It can not be accepted now.

Well, there certainly is a difference between a peaceful activist/protester and the scum who use arson or destruction of labs and such and who would rightly be labeled as terrorists. Just so we have a distinction here.
