Colourful pants created a stir at the province's busiest courthouse today. It's a pressure tactic related to an ongoing battle with the Quebec government over pension reforms. Some judges refused to sit at the Montreal courthouse because the 80 special constables that provide security were donning jeans and camouflage-style pants. But activities returned to normal after about 20 minutes when constables assigned to courtrooms changed back to their usual uniforms. Quebec Justice Minister Stephanie Vallee (Val-LAY') says it comes down to a matter of respect. (Earlier this week, Montreal police officers were criticized for wearing camouflage pants to former premier Jacques Parizeau's funeral on Tuesday. Premier Philippe Couillard has said that the government intends to introduce measures this fall to ensure peace officers wear their uniforms.)
