Montreal Officers Give New Meaning To The Term 'Fashion Police'

Montreal's finest would make Norway's curling team proud.

There's something odd about Montreal police these days.

We can't quite put a finger on it.

Something about the way they're dressing.

And it reminds us of something we've seen before.

Police are currently locked in a struggle over changes to their pensions, CBC News reports.

They're protesting (they can't legally strike) by wearing not-exactly-police-issue pants.

And it's really started to take off on social media.

This photo was the top post on Reddit's homepage Thursday.

For a while, it was fun. Then they wore the pants during Jacques Parizeau's funeral.

And Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre was not impressed.

He said the officers have "no class," according to the National Post.

The province is looking at legislation to ensure officers wear their proper uniforms.

That means the cops-in-silly-pants days could be numbered.

So for now, take a look at how Montreal's "fashion police" are taking a stand.
