Protesters hiding behind masks not democratic

If people (Occupiers) want to protest, then they should be willing to show their faces.

To the Editor,

If people (Occupiers) want to protest, then they should be willing to show their faces.

There are too many hiding behind their masks. The Charter of Rights was not created to allow this kind of stupidity.

Those wearing a mask should be made to remove them or be arrested. If you feel strong enough about making changes and the only way is to  demonstrate, that is your right. But don’t hold the community at ransom.

The municipalities should free the police’s hands and lobby the federal government to make changes to the law. Enough is enough
