Montreal welcomes royal visitors

by admin November 17, 2009

Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, were greeted by separatist protesters upon their arrival to the headquarters of Montreal Black Watch regiment on Tuesday. Around 100 demonstrators, mostly from radical separatist groups such as the Reseau du Resistance du Quebec clashed with riot police, threw eggs and chanted “Majesty, go home!” at Canada’s future head of State. Prince Charles, in order to avoid the fray, entered through a side door of the regiment, where he holds the honorary rank of colonel. The demonstrators were protesting what they called “cultural genocide” and the control of French Quebec by the British Crown. At least two arrests were made Tuesday, reports said.
