Policemen inciting riots?
Here's a CBC report (video or text) about police dressing up as anarchists and trying to start a riot during the recent SPP protests in Quebec.

The boots of the provocateurs match those of the police, and the men fled behind the police line to escape. The police refuse to say who the men were, and no other protesters recognize them. You can watch the full union footage on youtube, which is where the CBC got the story from.

Gambling with our Future
DEADLINE: Sunday 11:59 pm.

Our current national election has been the most boring one in our history. To spice it up a bit, I invite you to wager in the Election Outcome Pool. Guess the popular vote of the five parties, and the number of seats that they will win. Fill in this ballot in the comments section:

NUMBER OF SEATS (out of 125): LIB: X PQ: X ADQ: X

For every percentage point and number of seats that you are off, you get one point. The person with the fewest points wins.

Bonus: if you predict that the Greens or Québec solidaire wins a seat, and they actually do, you get 50 points deducted from your score.

Classy newspaper

The director of elections in Quebec recently stated that women who wear the burka or niqab are allowed to vote without revealing their faces. This caused a firestorm of protest and the director has since reversed position. (Somehow what was legal one day was illegal the next.)

It's nice to see that the Journal de Montreal could be counted on to address the issue with taste and courtesy for both sides. (See top of newspaper)
