The Conservatives continue to insist that professional protesters are disrupting rail traffic across the country.

During Question Period this morning, Conservative MP John Brassard told Parliament that quote ``The prime minister is taking his cues from the granola-crunching, Castro-loving, V-W bus driving, anti-resource, anti-government, anti-everything professional protesters with absolutely no connections to First Nations groups.''

The transport minister's Parliamentary Secretary replied that the Conservatives' exaggerated tone is only making the situation worse.
