Is the following part of the attempt to smear Quebecois student protesters?
QUEBEC CITY (UPI) — Queen Elizabeth was booed by student hecklers Saturday as she began her controversial two-day visit to this bastion of French Canada. The booing was heard at least twice as the royal motorcade pulled up in front of the Provincial Legislature. It was the first real incident of the royal visit.
Some 50 policemen — part of the most extensive security force in Canadian history — moved in swiftly to disperse the hecklers. Some minor scuffling took place, but police succeeded in herding the demonstrators away from the main entrance to the Legislature. Four or five of the hecklers, including Reggie Chartrand, a former Montreal boxer and well-known separatist leader, were taken into custody by members of the special riot squad.
It’s the “student hecklers” part that bothers me. Will now every jerkwad in Quebec be referred to as a “student”? Surely, no student in Quebec is silly enough to think that the Queen is causing any of the province’s problems.
