Can you spot the difference?

From Haverford College warning students that during a pandemic they shouldn't protest for safety purposes:

From Toronto Mayor John Tory reacting to anti-lockdown protests: Quick, what's the difference between them? Well, the big one is that the Haverford statement also spoke out in favour of the protesters' cause, which Tory has not. He isn't even willing to say "I agree that you have the inalienable right to this protest but I'm begging you not to do it."
