Police deployed teargas without warning onto demonstrators in Montreal during last weekend’s peaceful anti-lockdown protest. It’s estimated that at least 3,000-5,000 people attended the protest, where demonstrators voiced their concerns about Premier Legault’s lockdown measures. Police were out in full force on the streets, using megaphones to threaten crowds with hefty thousand-dollar fines for disobeying social distancing rules and not wearing masks. Some parts of Quebec have a strict curfew of 8:00 pm, but other regions in the yellow zone have had their curfew pushed back to 9:30 pm.

Is it fair that police fired teargas at peaceful protestors? What does this say about freedom of speech and the state of the country’s democracy?
