Montreal Mayor Livid Over Metro Smoke Bomb Attacks - Montreal - CBC News
Montreal mayor G√©rald Tremblay is urging people to ‚Äútake back their city‚ÄĚ after a series of smoke bombs paralyzed the public metro system, sending the island‚Äôs transit service into chaos at the peak of rush hour.
‚ÄúNo cause, legitimate or not, can justify any criminal action that jeopardizes public security,‚ÄĚ a livid-looking Tremblay told reporters at a news conference.
Although the attacks haven‚Äôt been directly linked to ongoing student protests, Tremblay also urged students and politicians to get back to the negotiating table to settle their tuition dispute, and restore civil order.
Earlier in the day, Montreal police released images and descriptions of four suspects in the co-ordinated smoke bomb attack in the metro system at the height of rush hour this morning.
