Police lied to obtain warrants, Quebec journalists testify at inquiry

The Globe and Mail's Les Perreaux reports:
Two of Canada's top journalists have testified they were shaken to discover what they allege are half-truths and lies used by some police forces in Quebec to obtain search warrants from credulous courts to track journalist telephones.
Marie-Maude Denis, an investigative reporter with Radio-Canada who was pivotal in uncovering the construction and political financing scandal in Quebec that triggered a public inquiry and dozens of arrests, and Patrick Lagacé, a columnist for La Presse, an occasional contributor to The Globe and Mail and one of Quebec's most prominent TV personalities, testified Thursday at the province's public inquiry into police surveillance of journalists.
