OTTAWA – Federal politicians walked a careful line Wednesday when condemning separatist protesters who trampled a Canadian flag last weekend – with the most muted comments coming from the Tories.

The footage, circulated by an online group calling itself “Put Back the Flag,” shows a Maple Leaf lying on the road near protesters in front of Montreal's City Hall last Saturday.

The video, posted on Youtube, shows the flag left lying on the road for cars to run over. Protesters can be heard cheering the cars on.
