Authoritarian critic of peaceful protests Diane Deans booted off Ottawa city council
Red State: 'Deans got booted from the police services board, in a battle with Mayor Jim Watson. She was voted off by the full city council, by a 15-9 vote. They also moved to replace the second craziest person on the board, Carol Meehan. But then when Deans got voted out, others including Meehan, quit in support of her. That means the more radical elements — who had control over the police and were demonizing the protesters — are now gone.'
