Violent Police Repression of Media in Montréal, business as usual

“The repression of journalists in Montréal and Québec in general, is a symptom of the massive and systematic repression of freedom of expression province-wide by government and police forces. On May 18 2012, Law 78 was passed, which unconstitutionally forbade free assembly. This law was morphed literally over night into municipal bylaw P-6 which has been used to incredible effect to deny the Québec population some of the most fundamental rights guaranteed by the Canadian constitution and Québec’s own Charte des droits et libertés. This has been enforced by massive police violence, political profiling, and a generalized climate of repression.”

The Canadian Forces have been preparing to battle Pipeline protesters.

This fictional battle against environmentalists was not just fought by the Canadian Forces. This was a “whole of government” response exercise involving the Canadian Security and Intelligence Service(CSIS), Communication Security Establishment Canada(CSEC, the NSA north), Royal Canadian Mounted Police,(RCMP), The Sûreté du Quebec(Québec provincial police) and the Service de Police de la Ville de Montréal(SPVM).
