Union rep: "City Hall demo went a bit too far"

The City of Montreal may sanction the municipal workers who took part in a demonstration in front of City Hall yesterday.

The protest drew hundreds of municipal workers angry with Bill 3, the legislation that will change their pension plans.

The crowd lit a fire in the middle of the street and fueled it with firefighters' union caps and shirts plus some garbage and tree branches.

They also used a fire hose to spray water on the facade of City Hall.

The head of the municipal unions coalition, Marc Ranger is admitting that the workers went a bit too far when they sprayed water on the building.

He says it is important that the coalition's demonstrations unfold properly and he takes full responsibility for what happened.
