  1. This looks familiar, but because its about the lockdowns the damage isn’t being ignored…

    • You nailed it.

      All they needed was one BLM sign, then they’d have had carte blanche for violence.

      The damage was all they emphasized on. A few broken windows, burnt garbage cans, litter on the street, and that poor woman who couldn’t hear her tv.

    • @James Glasbergen And what would you have them focus on? That IS THE STORY. Although yeah, I would have interviewed the rioters themselves, and let them show what raving lunatics they are. How selfish and spoiled adults can behave just like spoiled little children. And like hoodlums and criminals.

      @Anti-Mask and Anti-Vaxx is New World Order _”omg u need get a life”_
      This is exactly the level of discourse I’ve come to expect from state apologists.

    • @Cartoonishly Inept We get it, you’re an edgy libertarian kid. Very cool, we’re all so impressed…

      @Cartoonishly Inept I dont care what u said but I bet u have no life whatever Iosers

    • @Ricky Bobby anarchism doesn’t mean violence.

  4. The average gym owner needs to stay shut but Costco, walmart, SAQ and the weed store get to stay open. It’s about time we wake up

    • @The Misanthrope Bully

    • @in Trump we trust What is a stripe club?

    • @Moms MADD You are completely right. It’s all because of the idiots that lockdowns are needed because they don’t know how to or refuse to follow health guidelines. You have to treat children like children and treat idiots like idiots.

    • @paulcorda At Costco in Manitoba all non essential items were blocked off and couldn’t be bought.

    • @Tsung-Yuan Kuo I consider myself a specialist in this area, I’ve had to eat food all my life so I can tell you with certainty that it is hard to survive without groceries.

    Mayor does not care about small business.

  6. Leave the small businesses away from this. They are the victims/ innocent ones and have nothing to do with this 🤦‍♂️

      @QUALITY_CONTENT MY DUDE thats not how social upheaval works

    • “Hundreds”

    • @Mike Davis The News didn’t ignore the damage and looting by the rioters. The BLM protests were mostly peaceful in case you didn’t know, which you probably don’t. Floyd may not have been an upstanding citizen and role model, that does mean it’s ok for him to be killed.

    • @Bob Kozalov 2 billion dollars in damage and a handful of deaths are peaceful to you…your a very sick individual then.

    • @Mike DavisHow many protests were there all together and how many riots were there? Riots meaning anywhere there was looting and vandalism. How many please.?

    Lock everyone down and don’t forget to keep the airports open to let in the “variants “

  8. “the businesses have insurance” I think that’s what you guys said all last summer during the peaceful protests

  9. These children should be tracked down and charged. Businesses are already suffering and those business owners should be able to sue for damages

    why target the small business? They got nothing to do with this.

    • No name Women | April 12, 2021 at 7:14 PM | Reply

      That they can get some money from insurance because they are not working they have family to feed

    • @No name Women insurance only pay for damage, not includes loss business due to closure for renovation. Also think about employee that work in the shop. They don’t get pay when the business is close for renovation.

  11. Rioters:
    “Shut downs are bad for business”
    Also Rioters:
    “Lets smash these smalls businesses”

  12. 0:11 “city crews were out early this morn- *BRRRRRRRR*”

    Looked ” mostly peaceful ” to me

    keeping it classy Montreal

  15. I don’t like the news these days because the reporters don’t remain impartial. Just tell me exactly what happened, not your thoughts on the matter.

    • Khayti Rayay | April 12, 2021 at 5:56 PM | Reply

      Reporters are idiots they say what their bosses tell them to say after they chop off the stuff they want to choose off. it is all about sensationalism not fact!

  16. Pay attention how they switched it. All the sudden they care about small biz. Meanwhile Politicians put those small biz in to starvation mode, This is sad,

    I would have been against this a year ago, but now that I know “riots are the voices of the unheard” I’m fine with it

    • Google: “Riot News” in Any other country. A dozen kids who were only there to vandalize & try to loot had nothing to do with protests. LOL

    Don’t destroy small businesses that’s the government’s job 😁

  19. So that woman talking already knows businesses are suffering. Yet you’re not doing anything about it.

  20. They should be going after the guy who ordered the curfew and lock him in a closet.
