Council of Canadians: Demand answers: ‘agent provocateurs’, Montebello

ACTION ALERT: Demand answers about ‘agent provocateurs’ in Montebello
As reported by the Globe and Mail, "Organizers of a peaceful protest at this
 week’s Montebello summit want answers from the Prime Minister about three
 demonstrators whom they say were police agents. Dave Coles, president of
the
 Communications, Energy and Paperworkers union, says the three were trying
to
 provoke violence…The men, who had their faces masked by bandannas,
eventually
 got through police lines where they were whisked away. But there is no
record
 of their arrests and police have refused to comment on the
 matter…Activists say they believe the three were planted in the crowd to
provoke a
 confrontation to give police justification for moving on the peaceful
protesters."
The 5 minute video, filmed by a Council of Canadians chapter activist, can
be
 viewed on YouTube.
Dave Coles has said, "The Communications, Energy and Paperworkers Union
 believes that the security force at Montebello were ordered to infiltrate
our
 peaceful assembly and to provoke incidents…Are Canadian citizens going to
have
 to face these kinds of provocateurs just because Stephen Harper seems to
 think we’re some sort of loony-left group? Quite frankly, that’s insulting
and we
 don’t accept it and we want answers from him."
New Democrat MP Libby Davies said the video evidence raises "hugely serious
 questions" about the role of the police at contentious international
meetings.
 "I think we need to know who authorized this, how high up does this go?""
Liberal justice critic Marlene Jennings said the evidence is "quite
 incriminating" and called on the two police forces to "clear this up."
DEMAND
E-mail Prime Minister Stephen Harper at pm@pm.gc.ca and Public Safety
 Minister Stockwell Day at  day.s@parl.gc.ca and demand answers from them.
It is not
 acceptable for the prime minister’s office to simply say "the PMO is not
 involved in security for events" and for the public safety minister to just
refer
 the questions to the RCMP.
SAMPLE LETTER
Prime Minister,
As a member of the Council of Canadians, I am very concerned that security
 officials may have tried to provoke violence at the recent Security and
 Prosperity Partnership summit in Montebello. The Canadian public deserves
answers to
 the following questions: What have you asked the police about this
troubling
 incident? Were these individuals police officers? If so, who authorized
this
 action? If not, why is there is no record of their arrest and what steps
 have been taken to identify the three individuals? I await your prompt
reply.
Sincerely,
Your Name
