OTTAWA – Protesters are accusing police of using undercover agents to provoke violent confrontations at the North American leaders' summit in Montebello, Que.
A video, posted on YouTube, shows three young men, their faces masked by bandannas, mingling Monday with protesters in front of a line of police in riot gear. At least one of the masked men is holding a rock in his hand.
The three are confronted by protest organizer Dave Coles, president of the Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union of Canada. Coles makes it clear the masked men are not welcome among his group of protesters, whom he describes as mainly grandparents. He urges them to leave and find their own protest location.
Coles also demands that they put down their rocks. Other protesters begin to chime in that the three are really police agents. Several try to snatch the bandanas from their faces.
Rather than leave, the three actually start edging closer to the police line, where they appear to engage in discussions. They eventually push their way past an officer, whereupon other police shove them to the ground and handcuff them.

I saw the pictures of the boots on CTV Newsnet and yes, the boots have an identical yellow triangle on the soles.

Apparently the Quebec police have made 4 arrests in connection to the rally...2 men, 2 women. Doesn't seem to cover our 3 louts, does it?

You can even be dinged for resisting arrest for wearing swim goggles and carrying bottles of water (rendering the pepper spray ineffective, more or less. you still get it in the nose, but at least you can see).

Here's the picture gallery...www.ottawasun.com... from the Ottawa Sun. It clearly shows the boots and they appear to have the the same sole pattern as well. And you never know, they may have been more of them that Didn't get caught.
