Well, the police are not taking any chances.
Montreal police ready as Canadiens, Lightning square off ahead of do-or-die Game 4
Montreal police Const. Véronique Comtois says police will be noticeably present and reassigned to places where the game is being broadcast or where people are gathering.
“What we want tonight is for people to have their festivities, but we are asking them to respect order and public safety,” Comtois said. “We’re there to make sure everything happens the right way.”
Good thing this is not happening in one of those cities where the “summer of peaceful protests” happened.
Can you imagine the protests happening after your team gets swept in the championship series.
Comtois says police are advising people to put distance between themselves and any potential disturbances to allow police to target any “problematic elements.”
But then how do you expect them to get that pic/vid to give them their 15-seconds of fame (they don’t deserve 15-minutes, IMO).
Police made 15 arrests during a rowdy celebration after the Canadiens’ series-clinching victory against the Vegas Golden Knights in late June. Eight police vehicles were vandalized and at least one was overturned.
And that was when they won? ! ?
