According to the Montreal Gazette, SQ spokesperson Jean Finet described the actions as appropriate, proportional, disciplined and professional on Thursday.
Finet spoke to the media with images of suspects police say were mostly responsible for the riot shown behind him and the weapons they used in front of him.
This is in accordance with a pathologist’s report that said two of the three most seriously injured protestors were not hurt by plastic bullets fired by the SQ.
Those injuries were a woman who suffered a shattered jaw and 20year Maxence Valade who lost an eye.
The person injured Alexandre Allard which SQ admits was caused by a plastic bullet suffered a blow to the head. The investigation continues and police will review amateur video leading up to Allard’s injury.
