Chas Licciardello and Julian Morrow were arrested, along with nine crew members, just a short distance away from the InterContinental Hotel where President Bush is staying, having already cleared one police checkpoint disguised as a Canadian motorcade. ""No particular reason we chose Canada," said Taylor. "We just thought they'd be a country who the cops wouldn't scrutinise too closely, and who feasibly would only have three cars in their motorcade — as opposed to the 20 or so gas guzzlers that Bush has brought with him."" More coverage at the Sydney Morning Herald and the ABC.
