Demonstrators remember man shot to death by police, renew calls for defunding

MONTREAL -- Dozens of Montrealers gathered in NDG on Saturday to protest a police shooting that left a man dead and to renew calls to defund the city's police force.

In a statement announcing the event, Black Lives Matter organizers in Montreal said they don't have faith in Quebec's police watchdog agency.

They also pointedly said that language is key to addressing racism. Quebec Premier Francois Legault has, for months, refuted the idea that systemic racism exists in the province.
