189 arrestations for tonight

After Bill 78, two nights of violence in Montreal streets



MONTREAL - A series of demonstrations over the weekend went a. amid a climate of tension and uncertainty as police began applying new, tougher laws designed to restrict public protests.

Despite the new rules, there was little Montreal police could do to prevent thousands of students and their supporters from pouring onto the city’s streets Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights.

Friday’s gathering was marked by one brief, violent standoff between protesters and police in which Molotov cocktails were thrown and CS gas deployed, followed by several hours of peaceful marching. Saturday and Sunday’s events, in contrast, began peacefully but then degenerated into chaotic scenes that included the lighting of bonfires in the city’s Latin Quarter the first night and violent clashes on the second.

Sunday night’s chaos erupted about 40 minutes after the event began. Black-clad protesters were seen ripping large pieces of cement out of the roadway and throwing them at police. At 9:45 p.m., police responded with percussion bombs and charged the crowd, dividing it multiple times. Many fled into the metro. A few hundred regrouped on Sherbrooke St., where police again charged them and deployed CS gas, forcing the crowd to disperse north. The crowd again regrouped, and were still being tracked along St. Denis at 12:30 a.m.

Police confirmed one person was taken to hospital, but the protester's injuries were described as non life-threatening. Shortly after midnight, La Presse published a photo of a man who appeared to have suffered a . injury. It was unclear if that was the same case.

As of 12:45 a.m., police had made 116 arrests.

Actually, if you are 10 people or plus for a protest, you have to call in 8 hours in advance to advise them of your route.

10 people or plus? That's pretty messed up, but I guess they're trying to counter attack by attacking freedoms and rights. And it will probably just get worst as the days pass.

I' m from montreal and I love/hate it here, but it's my hometown so I'm all for people standing up for their beliefs.
A friend of mine was passing by a protest a d went in an ally to take a piss, next thing he knows four cops came running in on him they beat him and broke his arm. So the abuse pretty much comes from both sides its not just the protesters who are out of hand.


You are a perfect example of why people get beat up by police... You know nothing and believe you know everything and have the right to everything...

It's more than 50 protesters not more than 10...

People do stupid things thinking its their right to do it and then blame the police for the response... People need to start understanding their rights and RESPONSIBILITIES... Yes I said it, RESPONSIBILITIES

People think they only have rights and no responsibilities... this is where society is #ed... Know your civic duties and get the story straight beforehand...

The police last night were VERY lenient... I was following the crowd from a distance and almost got hit by rocks because there were cops standing behind me 1 block away... If I would have been hit, man, I would have made the news and there would be carnage...

Law 78 was NOT applied in full force as the SPVM is still studying how they will apply it... I say when the protest is declared illegal, if there is even 1 rock thrown, circle the crowd and arrest EVERYONE. all 5000 all 10000 whatever you can fit in the busses and vehicles... Time to show some real force.

Also, in any other situation, if someone is throwing rocks at me, I would be justified in using deadly force. I see no reason why it shouldn't be used here... People say that we cops know the risks when we take the job, I say you know the risks when you are part of a violent group "demonstrating/protesting" (more like rioting and causing #)

This is the student leader's fault. All they have to do is call for calm... But Gabriel idiot-face doesn't do that because he loves the power trip he's on... He thinks he can play god...

It's only a matter of time before the police will finally be less lenient, stop being politically correct, and do what they have to do... Where I work, this would never have happened this way, we get things done the way they should be.

I think he might get arrested soon
if the police do that .. it will get extremely nasty
Gabriel Nadead Dumont (think that its name) all the protesters are following him
he is the leader of this revolution
he met with government official already and they spit on him

you would have get things done more then the riot police in Montreal ?
when there is thousand of people rebelling and still advancing toward you in massive quantity
what different tactic would you employ ?

You think he'll get arrested? I have not seen him at 1 single protest... he's a coward, little girl who is pissing his pants when he thinks of what will happen if he goes to protest...

Someone needs to find him and teach him a lesson in civility and proper behavior... Nobody spits on an elected official. He's a piece of # and deserves to get his ass handed to him...

Yes, we would have used much more force and not let things get so out of hand. You have to remember, that a line of police being pushed by 100 or 1000 people is the same, at one point the people in the front of the line can't push anymore without being crushed... So I say bring it on... SPVM doesn't use water cannons because it's supposedly "not well accepted" and can "tarnish the image"... How bad does the image have to be? THE CITY IS ON FIRE! PEOPLE ARE THROWING MOLOKHOV COCKTAILS AT THE POLICE! I say # them and hose the assholes down!

Plus this sitting and waiting is BS... Block some streets and force the protesters to stay within a certain perimeter... Don't let them decide where they go so they can destroy things in the process, show them the route they need to take... It's easy, last night I saw cops line up, throw some sound grenades and the people changed streets... It was like herding cattle...

These people are stupid, they really are... It doesn't take much IQ to throw things and break things...

Ignoring you other post making soft threats of "what will happen" typical BS cop attitude and the reason NO ONE respects them like we use to. And why they have become nothing more than the corrupt arm of pain from a corrupt gov.

You clearly CANT READ he posted THEY spit on HIM not the other way around.

True .. i was speaking figuratively about the spitage

they opened the door to a discussion with a meeting in person
when they met .. the door was shut down very abrutely
so yes .. they literaly spit on him in a manner of speaking
its after that meeting that things got really out of hands
many were very angry about that meeting .. that nothing was conclude so both parties
would be satisfy

in a real democracy .. both side comes to an agreement

In a real democracy, the majority gets what it wants... In this case, the majority want the # .s to go home and shutup...

Plain and simple...

and you of course know how to read better than I do... I turned the tables because it was indeed CLASSE who figuratively spat in the government's face by flat our refusing any offer without going to vote with the students he "represents"... he has no credibility and needs to be removed by any way possible...

the one time they did hold a vote, the leader of CLASSE counted the raised hands of the group in less than 30 seconds... hmmm, he can count pretty fast...

He is a sore excuse for a leader and needs to learn his lesson... you don't encourage a group to try to injure the police when you're trying to freeze tuition fees... this is why he needs to be "removed"...

I figured thats what you meant.

Also I agree with the protest and hell the light rioting.

I dont agree with fire bombing its not to that level where fire bombing and gorilla tactics are needed (not in Canada yet at least) Its stupid to burn random # for no other reason than to burn random #, Bomb fires in the middle of the street ect. No it makes your cause turn into something despised and removes all support.

Look at OWS they started off with a good cause and great thoughts then turned into complete socialist BS (and not the Canadian kind)

I will agree that is a problem but pushing back against police throwing back what is thrown at them nope.

Ahhhh, the tell tale tactic of psychological projection... No more things to say, so split hairs and try to discredit using satire or humor...

Although officially we are "under the queen", she actually has zero power over parliament and senate... the bankers and lobbyists have more power than her... Hell, because I can vote I have more power than her lol...

It's a symbolic title more than an official powerful position in our country...

Where did I imply anything about my rights and responsabilities exactly?
I had heard on radio that it was ten and initially, that was the number they must've changed that when it passed.

Well I guess my stupid unknowing claiming to know everything ass here made a simple mistake even if my info came from a source. And you implied that I think I have all rights and no responsabilities?

Please quote me exactly...
