Pension protest poster pops up

Banners apparently related to the ongoing protests against municipal pension reform are catching the eye of motorists this morning.

The banners featuring a photo of Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre and Quebec City Mayor Regis Labaume with their sleeves rolled up reads "United to bleed you".

They have been put up in several locations including on the Montreal-side of the Jacques Cartier Bridge and at the Louis-Hippolyte Lafontaine Bridge–Tunnel.

It is an apparent reference to Bill 3, legislation designed to force municipal employees to share the cost of a  $4-billion dollar deficit.

The National Assembly will begin five days of public hearings on the bill this Wednesday.
