You seem to be asking what is 'ok' for protests.  Why don't you tell me what is 'ok' and whether your definition could have been used in the past to convince those opposed to past protests. 

Protest is fine and good.  But in the case of the Toronto parade, peaceful protest does not include physically stopping a parade and holding it hostage until someone agrees to your demands.  That would be disturbing the peace or some other such illegal act.  Protest is essentially an act of free speech, it doesn't include physical acts of coercion like physically blocking a parade.

In the case of Edmonton Pride, protest is fine but the whole issue here is if the protest demands are valid or not. 
I can tell how good of a person you are by how you treat the people you disagree with.
