It says riots. Not protests

Then when people protest this law, they will wear masks.

"OK GUYS, LET'S RIOT!" "But obey the law and don't wear a mask please, we don't want to anger the government or anything."

The bill is made to help identify people who commit crimes like vandalism.
What makes them think criminals would break those laws but listen to this one?

but if they did wear a mask, but didn't get caught by the police, how would they know who to arrest?

It is indeed Canada. What doesn't make sense is isn't it already a criminal offense to participate in a riot or unlawful protest anyways?!? ISN'T THAT WHY THEY'RE UNLAWFUL?!?

RIOT!

long story short, **** like this is just going to make it worse.

On one side I can totally understand that using masks can be interpreted as protecting your identity while comitting a crime. But 10 years is overkill. A hefty fine or maybe something like 3 months would be more suitable.

How ******* stupid are you guys? Notice how it says 'At a riot'. Not 'at a protest' or 'at a rally'. At a riot. A riot is chaotic. Wearing a mask means that you're hiding your identity. You don't want to get caught. It's a perfectly fine law, and I love it. 'B-but what if you're wearing a mask at a protest, and then it turns into a riot?'. You run away, or you take the ******* mask off.

I think people are missing the funny here... It's illegal to wear a mask at an illegal gathering. It'ls like saying it's illegal to wear a mask while robbing a bank.

If it's a riot or unlawful assembly, then I can see why they might want to do this. That way they could pull out people who were more likely to cause the most trouble.

Thank god our congress is doing something about the important issues like the debt and healthcare gay marriage and masks

Riots are already against the law. Thats like banning bank robbers from wearing masks.
