Led by the self-styled Exalted Cyclops of Montreal's Klan - who was decked out in the trademark white cape and pointy hood - the demonstration was punctuated by shouts of "White Power!" and "White Victory!" along with the occasional fascist salute. Only two - Klan leader Michel Laroucque and his girlfriend, Manon Robert - would give their full names to a reporter. Police watched from across the street. The demonstrators were protesting the penalty that Quebec Judge Jean-Pierre Bonin imposed last week on Martin Belhumeur, an ex-security guard. Belhumer, a neighbor of Larocque, was convicted of illegal possession of three Molotov cocktails on Jan. 18, 1992. Larocque argued that Belhumeur would not have drawn as long a sentence if it was not for his beliefs.
