    This is the best summary I could come up with:

    Pro-Palestinian protests that include expressions of hatred or harassing behaviour cross a line, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Thursday.

    On Tuesday, Quebec’s Superior Court granted a Montreal synagogue and a Jewish organization an injunction barring some pro-Palestinian protesters from coming within 50 metres of their buildings.

    That included one event featuring members of the Israeli armed forces and another that she described as a “real-estate tour selling properties in illegal settlements in the West Bank.”

    Montreal MP Anthony Housefather said in an interview a day before Trudeau’s comments that it is “completely unacceptable” for protests to target Jewish houses of worship, community centres or businesses.

    “The protests become a problem when the target and location is intentionally set up to coincide with a religious affiliation,” he said in an interview prior to Trudeau’s comments Tuesday.

    In Toronto, a weekend reception at the Art Gallery of Ontario, featuring Trudeau and Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, was cancelled after demonstrators blocked entrances.
