I lived 4hrs from this race and attended a few times, a great place to see a race and all I have to say is it will be the friendliest disruption ever! Ha, they will be apologizing the whole time. Too funny! Be well! Ed :o)

Quebec students are ridiculous. They're just pissed they have to pay the same as everyone else in the country for university/college now. It's a joke..

I also hear Mosport has been upgrading.... perhaps time to bring F1 back to Bowmanville, ON since those of us out here will actually respect F1..

@Steve had it slightly wrong, they are not being asked to pay the same as the rest of the Country, even with the increases, they are still paying 30-40% less than any other Province.
Fargin Iceholes.

I had to laugh though, once the Open Day event was canceled, the students "protested" the cancellation, annoyed that they wouldn't get another photo op. Nyuk, nyuk.
Smart move by the Organizer.

Race won't be canceled, and the worst that may happen is some slight disruption of transit to the site. The race is held on an Island downtown, limited, easily controlled access, and these Dorks will have a hard time getting Mummy and Daddy to pay for tickets. They won't spend their own money, already spent it on Beer and Pizza.

@Matt g
That was circulation a week ago. And so what? I can wait for a day or so to check the web for news and analysis. They'll have moved on by then. Smart move would be for Crash and other sites to shut down, like the Promoter did with the Open Day at the race.. deny them a target.

I do amateur race reports and articles on my personal site and your suggestion - take the F1 content down temporarilly - is one option but I don't like to let the likes of Anonymous affect the way I do things.

I don't think going to Bahrain was a good idea but that didn't justify F1 fan sites being taken down and Canada/Quebec sure as hell isn't Bahrain. The show goes on. Maybe that's just me being a stubborn git.
