Madam Speaker, I quibble with a number of the facts, in terms of the way the member described those events.
If, during that day, somebody was violently preventing him from doing his job and from accessing Parliament Hill, I would say that would be very bad. If that had happened, the member should have contacted the appropriate authorities, and he should have raised a question of privilege in the House of Commons. My recollection is that he did not. If any protester representing any cause is disrupting members' access to their legislature, that protester is violating the law.
However, it is fairly common that we would allow marches to take place on the streets in front of Parliament. Those happen through a coordination with the police, and those happen with permission, from time to time. That is a completely different instance from somebody violently, in violation of the law, blockading our railway.
