Police officers protest cutbacks

Seeing red? Nearly 2,500 off-duty police officers marched from St-Denis to City Hall this past Wednesday in protest of their perceived lack of funding from the city. Led by the chairperson of the police brotherhood, Yves Francoeur, the mass of red-wearing officers denounced cutbacks that they say have resulted in decreased services and job cutbacks in the police department. Montreal’s public security committee is currently in contract negotiations with the police union.
