MONTREAL – The Canadian Civil Liberties Association has written the mayor of Montreal and the city’s police chief denouncing a controversial bylaw about protests it says “could not withstand constitutional scrutiny.”
Montreal city council passed a bylaw last May – known as P-6 – during the height of student protests, which made it illegal to demonstrate in the city without first providing police a protest route itinerary.
The city’s police force didn’t enforce the law at first but almost a year later, officers are using the law to end protests before they start.
