Taking on street fighters

A new municipal bylaw allows Montreal police officers to ticket people who get involved in street fights. Police say more and more street fights are breaking out at bars' closing time.

Mario Plante, the Assistant Director of Montreal Police North explains the new bylaw. Aki Tchitacov, the Executive Director of Dans La Rue, tells us what it could mean for young people at risk. And Ziggy Eichenbaum, the owner of Ziggy's Pub on Crescent Street, gives us a picture of what the scene can be on the street after the bars close.

We ask our listeners to weigh in: "Should police ticket people who get involved in street fights?"
