The RCMP and Quebec police force have denied allegations their officers posed as protesters to try to provoke peaceful demonstrators at the recent Montebello summit.
“I confirm (to) you that there is no agents provocateurs in the Surete du Quebec… It doesn’t exist in the Surete du Quebec,” spokesperson Const. Melanie Larouche told The Canadian Press.
RCMP Cpl. Luc Bessette said the Mounties do “not use tactics that would encourage confrontation or incite violence.”
