Quebec Police are admitting that they had undercovers at the SPP protest at Montebello -- this after vehemently denying it -- although now they deny that the purpose of the undercovers was to incite violence. Now the story is:

"Quebec provincial police admitted Thursday that their officers disguised themselves as demonstrators during the protest at the North American leaders summit in Montebello, Que.

However, the police force denied allegations its undercover officers were there on Monday to provoke the crowd and instigate violence.

"At no time did the police of the Sûreté du Québec act as instigators or commit criminal acts," the police force said in French in a news release. "It is not in the police force's policies, nor in its strategies, to act in that manner."

Really. I'd like proof that these undercover cops are who the SQ says they are, because I don't believe them. They already lied once, what else are they lying about? Oh what a tangled web we weave, when the blogosphere we practice to deceive!
