Day rejects calls for probe of undercover officers

OTTAWA -- Canada's Public Safety Minister Stockwell Day is ignoring
calls for an investigation into the case of three undercover cops
accused of trying to provoke clashes between riot police and
at this week's political summit in Montebello.

Quebec's provincial police Surete du Quebec admitted late Thursday
afternoon that three officers were dressed as militant-looking,
clad protesters at the North American Leaders' Summit of Prime
Stephen Harper and the U.S. and Mexico presidents. The Quebec force
initially denied the three men were officers, despite a union-
video showing them fleeing into a police line after they were
during Monday's demonstrations and denounced by other protesters
as "agent provocateurs" of the police.
