The reason why is because when people wear masks they will do things that they would never do if they could be identified. If you get fired from your job for Protesting Then obviously your morals and the company's morals you work for don't line up.

If you are protesting you should be proud of what you believe in and not have to hide your identity. What I see is someone protesting for a hateful cause and afraid of the real-life consequences for their idiotic actions.

TL;DR - Be proud of what you believe in, Don't hide your face.

I'm a Canadian law student, the rationale behind this law is in case someone is seen around a store wearing a mask, the cops can arrest or at least confront them. Cops need probable cause to do such things and this law gives them the ability to, also, as long as it a lawful assembly you can simply not wear a mask. I really don't see the problem with this.

What I would do. Then scream "religious oppression" if they tried to make me take it off. Then they either leave me alone to protest, or they ban full face Burkas and Niqabs. No downside really.

In the United States, symbolic speech is completely protected under the Constitution. After the case of Johnson v. Texas, it was decided that symbolic speech is legal. That means burning the nation's flag is completely protected by the federal government, let alone wearing masks. Anything goes, as long as it doesn't hurt anybody physically.

Not that I dislike our cousins in Canada, but the decision to ban masks in protests is awful. Most people want to remain anonymous during protests because, yea, they can lose their jobs. It gives the police a reason to put down protests and is essentially an injustice against free and symbolic speech and this man is a hero of the free world.

Or you know, if you are protesting something you believe should be protested and are PEACEFULLY protesting, you shouldn't need a mask anyway. For a voice to really count, there should be a person behind it.

Everyone's saying, "Why's he wearing a mask in the first place?" What the **** business is it of yours what someone else does, unless they're hurting someone? Oh yeah that's right, NONE. Ridiculous law is ridiculous, and the government and police creating and enforcing this law are initiating the violent use of force, which we claim we need them to protect us against.

Maybe they should give a ten year sentence for attending hockey games instead.

I am not supporting the decision the government made in this way, but I can't figure out why the hell they wear a mask...
Why not show your face like a man, instead of hiding and yelling like a scared kid?
I know some people can loose their jobs because of this, but then they have to decide if it is more important to keep your job, or fight for what you believe in.

in a short version: Government ****** up. But don't be a pussy and hide behind a mask if you try to fight for what you believe in.

My question is, what exactly is he protesting for/against that requires him to hide his face? If you really believe in something you should be proud to support it.

Bill C-309—the Preventing Persons from Concealing Their Identities during Riots and Unlawful Assemblies Act—makes it a crime punishable by a ten-year prison term to incite a riot while wearing a mask or any face covering, including face paint.

So basically it's not at any protest, it's at one in which the crowd could go nuts like during the vancouver riots
