Red hats seem to anticipate trouble as they walk by carefully observing the crowd gathered in front of the popular tire change competition stage on Crescent street during Montreal Grand Prix weekend.
Montreal Police dressed in combat boots, camouflage pants, dark blue standard issue jackets covered by bright neon-color vests with Montreal police logo, and topped with blood-red baseball caps patrolled the street for any obvious signs of unrest or disturbance.
These automatic pistol armed constables were wearing the aforementioned outfits as protest against Quebec government protracted inaction resolving their labor contract with police union.
Despite their labor dispute, the Montreal Police did an excellent job in protecting the area during these troubled times of global international terrorism threats.
