    They need to flip the police cars and burn some buildings. Then the media would love them. Oh yes, and blame old white men for the rate increase.

    I know this is in Ontario, Canada, but in the US demonstrations don’t have any requirements except permits if sidewalks or streets (public right of ways) are blocked. That raises the question: why are they gloating about disrupting traffic and blocking sidewalks?

    Oh, yeah!! Just wait until the parents of those doofuses see them in cuffs being hauled in by the police!!

    I’m curious about how many of those parents will refuse to post bail for their loser kids!!

    Although I’m sure John and Elly will, and then Mike will be grounded (and subject to Lizzie’s taunts) for the rest of the school year.

    Protesting is like Newton’s Third Law. To paraphrase: For every action there is a reaction. You can Protest. But in doing so you will pay for it in the reaction that follows.

    Funny, the one kid I don’t see in today’s strip is Wesley D. Bates, the organizer. Could it be that he organized and sent his minions and is sitting back laughing at them?

    I think today’s comic punchline is subtle but arresting. Kind of reminds me of the tagline joke in the old Rowan and Martin’s Laugh-in show, “Here comes the fuzz!”

    When I was a kid, there would be trouble and the cops would be there to protect the kids from their parents. “Now ma’am. please put down the belt. Sir! That bat is totally out of line!!”

    Before the days of people driving cars and trucks through protesters they didn’t like.

    Trudeau freezes the bank accounts of everyone who donated to the students — their parents.

    Sing along with the Pattersons!

    John, Elly & Elizabeth{in unison}: “That’s the sound of Michael, working on the chain…gang!”

    April: “Well, don’t you know”

    Pattersons: “That the sound of Michael, working on the chain gang.”

    Pattersons: “All day long he works on the road by the flowers.”

    Pattersons: “Working on Canada’s only highway, and Michael’s face is a glower.”

    John, Elly & Elizabeth{in unison}: “That’s the sound of Michael, working on the chain…gang!”

    April: “Well, don’t you know”

    Pattersons: “That the sound of Michael, working on the chain gang.”

    Michael needs to do two things: 1) Tie himself to a tree so the cops’ hoses don’t knock him down the street.2) Tell the cops he’s a minor so he can still go to school in prison!

    While this may not go well for Michael, keep in mind that Elly was a child of the 1960s. She will probably have vivid memories of this, as well as platform shoes, flare-legged trousers, pimpmobiles, and the music of the Bee Gees while people dance with a light floor under them and a disco ball above them.

    More cars? There could be trouble? Get out your bullhorn and let them know what they’re doing is illegal and threaten them with arrest. I’m pretty sure the crowd of high school students would disperse quickly.

    Don’t forget, these are high school kids, who lives with parents who have “never been so embarrassed in all their lives.” At least that’s what my Mom would have said.

    Lynn’s Comments:

    Our enraged and noisy parade made it to the BC Hydro building where we demanded to see the Minister of Transportation. We were told that he was not in the building and that we should make our concerns known in writing. We were too excited and energized to be reasoned with. This was exciting!

    Lynn’s Comments are very odd this time. No Ministry of Transportation back in the early 1960s. On September 27, 1977, the Ministerial Titles Amendment Act was passed and the department became a ministry. Also, the Ministry is not in the same building as the BC Hydro Building.
