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.

Hmmm.   How much have you studied protest ?  It does include civil disobedience, and stopping people from everyday tasks yes.

In the case of Edmonton Pride, protest is fine but the whole issue here is if the protest demands are valid or not.

What does Lawrence Bearse think ?
