There's **** in every crowd, and every one of these mass-disturbance protests creates a problem for somebody.

I think there's a tendency for people to rationalize/excuse/minimize the problems created by protests they're sympathetic to, while harshly critical of protests they don't support.  The people blocking the Alberta border crossing at Coutts were probably mad as hell when the native pipeline protesters disrupted rail freight in 2020, for instance.

Also you don't have to be sympathetic one way or another to see that different groups get different treatment. Pipeline protesters were met with police in tactical gear, homeless people doing nothing but camping in parks in Toronto had their stuff destroyed and were driven out by cops on horseback wielding batons. These convoy people are getting selfies with and thumbs up from the local piggies.
