Montreal police are investigating after a video was posted on Youtube that shows a group of people sneaking into the city’s metro system to take pictures, film video and even light fireworks. Global’s Kelly Greig reports.
MONTREAL — From sneaking into Montreal Metro stations and opening a maintenance hole to scale into the tunnels, a group of people are videoing themselves illegally entering the city’s the underground system.
Now, Montreal police are investigating.
It’s part of a project called Lowest Point in Montreal that was released on Youtube.
The video shows members of the group taking pictures of the passing cars and even lighting fireworks on the tracks.
“I don’t know why these guys do it. They think they can get away with it or they think it’s anonymous,” said cyber security expert Terry Cutler.
“The internet never forgets. It always leaves a digital footprint somewhere, so it’s going to be a matter of time before law enforcement just tracks them back.”
Montreal police spokesperson Carole Lalonde said officers were surprised when they saw the video and are now working to identify the people in the video.
The suspects could face up to $500 in fines.
