Quebec Provincial Police Blink on Montebello

the Sûreté du Québec Blinks:

Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que., denied allegations its undercover officers were there on Monday to provoke the crowd and instigate violence.

"At no time did the police of the Sûreté du Québec act as instigators or commit criminal acts," the police force said in French in a news release. "It is not in the police force's policies, nor in its strategies, to act in that manner."

"At all times, they responded within their mandate to keep order and security."


Here is the video again so you can decide if the police were being disruptive before their fake arrest:

Two Members of Parliament from the New Democratic Party have called for an inquiry.

Gotta go write a new post. And surprisingly, it won't be Friday Night Cat Blogging. ;)
Great! Now, what the heck are the cats going to do? And now you can see what a third party can do when you aren't stuck in a failing two party system.

Thank you for your comment! That is a great follow up story! It's good to see how the blogosphere has an impact in social justice in Canada as well!

I don't look at it as just an American phenomenon. And I really am beginning to think that we, in the left (and other's that want the truth regardless of ideology), need to work together around the world if we ever want to fully harness the power of the internet to make a difference.
