Russia & Quebec, Don't Protest The Similarities

Vladimir Putin recently issued new fines for unsanctioned protests, $9,000 for protesters and $30,000 for protest organizers.

Meanwhile a few months ago in Canada, Quebec Premier Jean Charest issued new fines for unsanctioned student protests, $5,000 for student protesters and $35,000 for student protest organizers.

For anyone who thinks these two instances are similar they should recognize that Putin is cracking down on protesters and Charest is cracking down on student protesters.
