The Montreal police officer at the centre of a controversial video involving a homeless man has been demoted by the police service.
A passerby took the video showing the man wearing only shorts and a t-shirt on a day when the windchill approached -40.
The officer is shown pointing his finger at the man, telling him he is going to tie him to a pole if he doesn't go inside.
He had been a senior constable, but sources tell CJAD he lost his senior ranking.
Montreal police would only say the officer has been disciplined, but by law, they aren't able to say how.
Dominique Peschard of the League of Rights and Freedoms says there needs to be more transparency in these kinds of cases.
"In terms of an internal administrative procedure, which is not accountable, it is not made public," Peschard said. "It's not going to increase the confidence from the public and given the fact also that police can get off the hook."
