Only very slightly so. (On the pro-Palestinian side.)

Note that there was a pro-Israel march in Ottawa last week - probably the biggest such gathering since Oct. 7.

People came from various regions to take part in it.

About 20% of the buses from the Toronto area were no-shows the morning of. Looks like it was a deliberate move by someone who set up a fake company that committed to the buses (as part of a larger transportation set-up), and so it left hundreds of people without a way to get to Ottawa that day.

Politics and Religion in Canada. When the protestors get tired and go home, the politicians incite antisemitism. I'm guessing this mayor does not speak for the city, but is instead voicing personal concerns about foreign politics and getting those concerns mixed up with local festivities.

No excuse for boycotting local festivity traditions because of foreign politics. Surely the mayor realized that Judaism is associated with Israel long before she was elected, nothing to do with war.

City mayors don't get to pick political religion sides when governing a multicultural city of 1.3 million. Mayors are figureheads at cultural events, not political advocate with personal beefs to pick.

This is a good article that explains the group behind the crazy protest at Toronto’s Eaton Centre last week and their motivations behind it. I found the main article being shared was from the Sun but didn’t give very much information. Apparently the owner of the Zara franchise was supporting Itamar Ben-Gvir’s campaign in Israel. Ben-Gvir is an extremist terrorist sympathizer and convicted criminal for hate speech who unfortunately a major part of the current coalition government running Israel right now. That guy literally wants to ethnically cleanse the West Bank of Arabs, him and his party are extremists just like Hamas. I think people are right to be upset about that campaign supporter taking money from Zara customers at his store and sending it to help that horrible extremist get voted into power.

That being said, you can’t harass shoppers and kids going to meet Santa Claus (WTF?!) or threaten police officers like the videos showed. They could have had a demonstration with picket signs outside the mall and not yelled at people going in to buy Christmas gifts for their families. Very disappointed no charges were laid, that kind of behaviour is completely unacceptable.
