Activists are suspected of having stolen equipment during the night from Sunday to Monday in order to create a fortress around their tents.

During TVA Nouvelles’ broadcast on Tuesday morning, police officers met at least one worker from the Rainville et Frères masonry company with the aim of taking his statement in connection with this alleged theft of fences, tarpaulins and counterweights.

“A report of theft on a construction site that occurred downtown near UQAM was indeed completed. We are currently investigating surveillance cameras and possible suspects, but we are not making a link with the UQAM camp at the moment,” confirmed Anthony Doléras, spokesperson for the SPVM.

TVA Nouvelles also went to meet activists at the entrance to the camp in order to ask them if they were responsible for the alleged theft.

Some of them provided answers that could be described as crazy.

“Well, the materials that were used to make these fences were stolen from the Earth,” said one of the protesters interviewed. Why does all this belong more to one person than to another?

Furthermore, during a live intervention by a TVA Nouvelles team, an activist left a UQAM premises with a loudspeaker projecting music towards the journalist and his cameraman in order to interrupt the conversation. with host Mario Dumont.

Further details will follow.
