Oh, My! My!

Quebec unrest: more arrests in a few hours than throughout the October Crisis
"The historic scope of the unrest in Quebec was illustrated in surreal scenes and statistics compiled early Thursday: More people were detained within a few hours — at least 650 of them, in mass roundups — than were arrested in all of the October Crisis. More than 2,500 people have been arrested in a months-long dispute that has catapulted the province onto international news pages, which is at least five times the number jailed during the 1970 FLQ crisis that saw martial law declared in Quebec."
This is for all you folks who think Trudeau was such an odious character.

Notice the Parti Quebecois leader is opening the door for more of the same:

"“The government has led us to the worst social crisis we have ever known in Quebec,” Parti Québécois Leader Pauline Marois scolded the premier during a legislature exchange Thursday."
In other words, stick around folks. I think we can use you.

But, no Pauline. No Quebec cabinet minister has been murdered. No foreign diplomat has been kidnapped. Quit exaggerating and exploiting a bad situation for your own gain. This is serious stuff.
