I guess I’m a bit shaky on what we’re supposed to have seen in this video.
All I see is an old man making claims that the, what look to me like, anarchists looking to start a fight were actually police without any evidence other than one gave him a weird look.

Thanks, that helps.
So did he see the office try to start a fight? Throw a rock or anything? The article doesn’t say, only that Mr. Coles is making the accusation.
Also, does the Quebec police have a history of “beating up” protesters? Just wondering where this guys accusation is coming from.

Without those details....and without corroboration or substantiation, I'm wondering why we should be shocked at undercover work by police? :shrug:

They've got nothing on the agents who brought down the twin towers on 9/11.

Of all of the protesters, labor protesters, the three gentlemen who were cops were the only "protesters" who picked up rocks and then refused to put the rocks down when asked to by the suit dressed organizer of the protest. All the time the president of the union was saying it was not going to be violent protest. It is one thing to infiltrate to gather information and quite something else to be at the ready for something more than just getting information. But one wonders why a labor protest or a political protest should be investigated without some provocation that it steps outside of political protest.

Of course this never happens in the US.
