Watson calimed that Ottawa residents living near the demonstration on Parliament Hill and nearby downtown areas are having to endure “a living hell”

He said: “It’s disturbing when you see the protest turning into what looks like some kind of a fun carnival, where they’ve got bouncy castles and hot tubs and saunas, a complete insult to the people who are putting up with this nonsense for the last seven days, and it shows great deal of insensitivity.”
