They'll have no trouble forming the Victoria protest. The "usual suspects" will show up .... rant and rave .... cause traffic disruption ..... look for reporters so that they can be enraged on TV ..... make a big mess that they won't clean up ...... and go away thinking that they accomplished something. Of course the local left wing media will show up and exaggerate the crowd size. show more show less
That's right, most will be too eager to get to the Blethering Place for Tea, and these are certainly not Tea Partiers. show more show less
The criminals were the politicians, who not only created the sub-prime mortgage market, but mandated it by force of law. It had its beginnings in the community reinvestment act under Cater. It was Marxist groups like this, who were protesting, threatening bank mangers in their homes, and suing them in court that led to the community reinvestment act. The lending institutions wanted nothing to do with it. When they were forced into it, they did what they could to protect the integrity of the system by spreading the risk, but it was eventually overwhelmed. If they had done nothing, and maybe they should have done nothing, it would have collapsed years before it did. show more show less
And what are they even protesting? Is it another vague fight against the financial sector and its greed? If so, perhaps they should know that the Arab Spring happened people wanted more economic freedom and to stop the Middle-Eastern dictatorships from further screwing the economy. No doubt these Western hipsters protesting right now want more government intervention, ignorant of their own countries scenario or what it really takes to get the economy moving again.
truewest Why aren't they out creating jobs?
What a crock!!! A gang of illiterate, non-consequential, idiotic, substandard goons who want to destroy that upon which their ability to undertake such nonsensical idiocy is based are attempting to force others to think in their low-brow ways. They are unable to sway people with logic and debate. Therefore, like all good socialist/communists, they riot and scream trying to defeat reason with gang violence. They should all be arrested and condemned to life in the remotest part of never-never-land where they came from and belong
I wish I was bankrolled by my parents so I could waste a week whining and doing nothing productive.
Oh boy, angry protesters. At least they self identify as failures in life, people who are not and will not be successful so they head to the streets to "protest" that the successful people are sacrificing more of their money to the mob. Winter is coming, these are fair weather protesters. No worries
Don't these people have jobs. And, if they don't then wouldn't their time be better spent looking for one? Finally, what impact do these protestors expect their sit in to have?

I am not sure how will the protests work out in Canada, and here in Toronto, but juding by the comments alot of other are pretty much Ignorant on what has happening around the global and who controls the stocks, Toronto has a also a poverty problem, alot of homeless who are on the streets, are usual taken by the police and never seen again, well some other homeless find and decide to live in a ruined abandoned building.
Well i am not surprised about the comments made by the posters on the nationalpost, the nationalpost has always been right wing,i was surprised though by how many people or some of the people are still sheeps

As a canadian it was shocking of you to find a homeless man..I hope your being sarcastic. They are everywhere and are the piss of society. Perhaps if they got off of their lazy asses and worked, instead of panhandling 2 hours a day for booze and drugs society as a whole would be better off.
