The whole Metro system except the yellow…
The whole Metro system except the yellow line has been bollixed up this morning by people throwing bricks on the tracks and pulling emergency brakes.
LATER: Further pranks were pulled around 2:15 pm when a smoke bomb was thrown into the tunnel at Berri-UQÀM.
What do I think? I actually think odds are this is the work of a small number of hotheads who aren’t thinking through how it reflects on the rest of the protesters – or don’t care. But I do not rule out the possibility that agents provocateurs could have set this up to drive a wedge between FEUQ and FECQ on the one hand, and the more radical CLASSE on the other.
EVEN LATER: Even CBC is considering the actions could be by people discrediting the student movement, and police are not accusing any group yet.
