All that I know for certain is that if I had thrown an object at a politician, much less hit one, I'd be up for assault charges. But, then, politicians -- especially Canadian politicians -- are judged by a different standard. A few years back, then Prime Minister Jean Chretian actually grabbed a heckler and put him into a headlock. Man, can you imagine what would happen if you tried to put a headlock on a politician?
It's time that politicians get the message "they are not above the law". Unfortunately, everyone is complacent about incidents like this because, it would seem that politicians ARE above the law.
