The Bayview Protests Are Taking Place

The Bayview Protests Are Taking Place

Council was told security hired to prevent encampments wouldn’t make arrests. One councillor is questioning why city documents say otherwise.

As news of the planned protests spread, calls for community meetings in the community followed. The city is now working with an emergency response plan developed by the Quebec government.

The protest is scheduled for the beginning of the week, but it’s too soon to tell what the outcome will be.

Meanwhile, some people are already starting to return to their homes.

People who live in the Bayview neighbourhood say they’re surprised to see people who appeared to be in their neighbourhood.

“I come home and there they are, on people’s doorsteps. It’s shocking and shocking,” said one woman who asked not to be identified. “It’s shocking. It’s so unfair.”
