It's costing the city of Montreal a pretty penny to clean fire trucks plastered with protest stickers.
Radio Canada reports it cost more than 12-thousand dollars to clean over a hundred vehicles during a span of about a week beginning in late July.
The red stickers have been part of pressure tactics by city workers against Quebec's planned pension reform legislation.
Mayor Coderre says the bill for the cleaning will be sent to the unions, but the unions argue workers have the right to speak out.
Parliamentary committee hearings on Bill 3 will begin on Wednesday.
