Montreal Mayor Livid Over Metro Smoke Bomb Attacks - Montreal - CBC News
Montreal mayor GĂ©rald Tremblay is urging people to â€śtake back their cityâ€ť after a series of smoke bombs paralyzed the public metro system, sending the islandâ€™s transit service into chaos at the peak of rush hour.
â€śNo cause, legitimate or not, can justify any criminal action that jeopardizes public security,â€ť a livid-looking Tremblay told reporters at a news conference.
Although the attacks havenâ€™t 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.
