They did nothing wrong. Singing and speaking in public are what Canada stands for.

@Oldtimer - They certainly did do something wrong by holding a demonstration without a proper licence; demonstrating on private property without the owners' permission and not leaving after being warned by agents for the owners. Any non-native doing the same thing would have seen the bottom end of a cell !!
