I don't get why you keep finding grey areas here. There is absolutely no grey area here and I think the Canadian police and the other posters in this thread have made that pretty clear.
It depends on how you define protected. There are procedures for dealing with overholding and you are correct in that you'd need more than three days to force him out but that could-- depending on his status-- open him up to being sued after
Are they trying to intimidate you or were they doing something?
Have they figured out that you have restored power?
