Objet: Police protection for the October 4th 2009 Life Chain
Good day Lieutenant Serge Morin,
I tried to reach you by e-mail and phone on Wednesday September 2nd 2009 around 10h37, but I haven't yet received an answer.
Did you get the "Request for permission for a demonstration" I sent? (French name: "Formule relative à la tenue de manifestation, marche ou rassemblement de personne et/ou demande d'occupation de la chaussée de la ville de Québec")
We also have a request: Could you please provide police on foot patrol (not in their cars), which would physically stand between the pro-choicers and the pro-lifers? (Something the Ottawa Police Department did quite naturally for the May 14 2009 National March for Life.) If pro-choicers cross the street to come and harass the pro-lifers, policemen will kindly return them to their side. (To better explain this request, I'm including a copy of the Open Letter To Mayor Labeaume.)
Moreover, would it be possible to meet you in person (or to reach you by phone), in order to transmit to you in private the rest of the information related to this event?
Secretary, Pro-Vie Québec
