Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that three of their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que.

"Police said the three were told to monitor protesters who were not peacefully demonstrating to prevent any violent incidents, but they were called out as undercover agents when they refused to throw objects." To which I say "Bullshit". They were caught out because they approached a peaceful line of protesters in an aggressive manner, while carrying weapons and refused to back down. They were there to cause trouble and that is what they were prevented from doing.

Continuous lies in the face of ample evidence only proves that the Quebec police are liars and were attempting to us provokation to incite violence.

I find it very likely that they other "violence" at the protests was very likely caused by the same tactics.

Judge for yourself with this video. I, for one, am convinced.

A retired Ottawa police officer who was formerly in charge of overseeing demonstrations for the [Ottawa] force said he questions who the masked men really are, after viewing the video: "Were they legitimate protesters? I don't think so," said Doug Kirkland.

"Well, if they weren't police, I think they might well have been working in the best interests of police."

He added that if the situation was as it appeared, he did not approve of the tactic. "It's pretty close to baiting," he said

The protest legal aid committee, however, received no report from authorities of their arrests, lending further credence to allegations the two were not genuine protesters. "Yes, these were definitely agent provocateurs, cops, and legal folks have no record of these supposed arrests," said Peoples Global Action (PGA) spokesperson John Hollingsworth at the Indie Media Centre.
