It was rowdy on the streets of Montreal Monday night as protesters clashed with police after an anti-police brutality march.
The march began at the St. Laurent metro station, and protesters made their way east to SQ headquarters at on Parthenais St. in the east end.
Demonstrators were marching in solidarity with the family of Sandy Michel, a young native man who was killed last week by police in Lac-Simon, near Val d’Or.
The march was declared illegal soon after it started.
Tear gas had to be used to disperse the crowd.
