Since October 7, following a terrorist organization that led a terror attack against Israel, resulting in over 1400 deaths and more than 230 hostages, the situation in Canada has become tense.

Huge protests took place almost every weekend in Montreal, Quebec. During and after those protests, vandalism occurred, critical infrastructures were blocked, and attacks against Jewish institutions were reported.

In Toronto, a bomb threat was made towards a Jewish school, forcing the place to be evacuated. In terms of the number of arrests and charges given by the police, this is incomparable to the freedom convoy charges and the deployment of the emergency act.

Anti-Israel protesters are also spreading highly antisemitic speeches, and the crowd continues chanting the slogan “From the river to the sea, Palestine will be free,” which calls for the destruction of the state of Israel along with the people who live there.

But how are citizens responding to the chaos that has invaded Montreal since the beginning of the conflict?

On November 22, questions were asked to citizens on Saint-Catherine Street in Montreal.

The first man said:

It makes sense that some people will fight back. Hamas is more than fighting back. It’s a terrorist organization but the word terrorism has been manipulated a lot over the last 20 years. So there’s no excuse for the attack of October 7th and there’s no excuse for trying to wipe out everyone that lives in Gaza.

A woman who seemed to be a student at the university mentioned that, “The protests are kept as a kind of expression for solidarity with all the civilian casualties that are going on in Gaza.”

Another man, who advocates for freedom of expression said:

But I think the freedom of speech is still a part of our constitution so people should have the right to protest, talk about whatever issues that they feel about. So the moment the government starts restricting protests, I don’t think that would be a good day for Canadians.

Another person added, “I don’t support all those kind of things in the matter of, I mean, the government needs to do what they need to do in the matter of protest and vandalism. I think they shouldn’t do it. But also I think that probably if they don’t do it they won’t be heard.”
