A protest is ongoing in Montreal as of Saturday, November 8, in protest against police brutality and systemic racism in Quebec province. The demonstration is taking place at Trenholme Park where participants gathered from 14:00 (local time). The demonstration has been organized by a number of activist groups including the Black Lives Matter Montreal and the Defund the Police Coalition. The protest was announced following a fatal officer-involved shooting in Montreal on October 29.
The demonstration is expected to remain peaceful, but a heightened police presence and localized disruptions are likely in the vicinity of the gathering.
Those in Montreal are advised to monitor developments, avoid all protest and demonstration locations as a precaution and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
