After initially denying it, the Quebec Provincial Police have acknowledged that three of their officers infilitrated a group of peaceful union demonstrators at the Montebello Summit. The police officers were black-clad, wearing bandanas to hide their faces and one of them was holding a rock. In a video, one of the police officers is seen shoving a union official and swearing at him.
The un ion official and his group contend the officers were there to stir up trouble so the police could move in. The RCMP were also working along side the QPP at Montebello.
The fact is this summit will be remembered for the police acting badly while the demonstrators remained peaceful. The Globe and Mail says there should be a full investigation into what these police officers were really doing at Montebello. Do you agree?
Do you think police should infiltrate demonstrators who are acting peacefully within the law as is their right?
