Where are all the people that jumped on the cancel Bahrain bandwagon, most of whom didn't know (or didn't care) that Al Wefaq and the protesters were campaigning for the removal of the right of women to vote and stand for election in Bahrain.

So surely as the Canadian protesters are a lot more democratic than the Bahrain protesters, the same people who wanted the Bahrain GP cancelled would also want the Canadian GP cancelled.

Unless they really had an ulterior motive.

Give me a break! Here's a solution for these students - FIND ANOTHER SCHOOL THAT'S CHEAPER!!!

No need to worry about the race though, everyone in Canada knows people in Quebec are wacked. Take their hockey team for example...

Let's not forget that the race is hosted in a province here that actually wanted to (and maybe still does) separate from the rest of our country, yet they still don't mind hosting "our" Grand Prix. Personally I think the race should go back to Mosport once they get the upgrades done...

@JR Whittam - if the Canadian government were to arrest and jail the doctors and nurses who treat any injured protesters I will be one of the first to say that F1 should cancel this race. From what I can tell Canada is not refusing to allow foreign journalists in to cover the protests nor is their president's family running the race. If you cannot tell the difference between the Canadian government's treatment of it's citizens and the Bahraini monarchy's then you may not be in the best position to comment on this. Bahrain had the Saudi military come in to keep order. I doubt that the Canadians will make that same request of the U.S.

@Mark

What if the Canadian protesters wanted to subjugate women and deny them equal rights, just like Al Wafeq and the Bahrain protesters want?

If you want to support Al Wafeq, the Bahrain protesters and the subjugation of women in Bahrain, then you may not be in the best position to comment on this.
