Word on and off the streets concerning the Summit protests in Quebec City

"Our lives are restricted. The police presence is kind of an agressive mark. It's disgusting to see all that shit [tear gas]. On the other side, the protesters might be a little cranked up. Molotov cocktails are not the best way to get credibility for their issues right now."
–Mathhew Duchesne, a resident of Rue Cremazie Est in Quebec City.

"This is fucking brutal. They're trying to piss people off and make them act."
–Pete, a memeber of the Canadian Auto Workers' Union after fleeing a round of tear gas and rubber bullets. 

"People focus on the violence [of protesters]. Concussive bombs, pepper-spray, water-guns and tear gas? Who is more violent?"
–Kendra Coulter, a fourth-year Scholars Elective student at Western, and one of the organizers of a bus which left Western to attend the FTAA protests.
