Toronto police have unveiled some of the tools they will be using to assure security during two global summits to be held in Canada this month.
On Thursday security forces gave a demonstration of their arsenal at a police training facility in Toronto allowing the media a first-hand look at how they plan to protect the city and citizens.
Dear U of T Student,
RE: G20 Summit: Restricted Access on St. George Campus
As you may know, the G20 summit will be taking place in Toronto on June 26-27, 2010. Queen's Park North, which is immediately adjacent to the St. George Campus, was recently designated as the official protest site.
We of course respect the legitimacy of peaceful protest. But we know from past G20 summits (including last year's summit in Pittsburgh) that these protests may be associated with violence, tear gas, arrests, disruption and damage to buildings.
It our hope that these untoward incidents do not materialize here in Toronto. However, it is only prudent to act so that we protect those students, staff, and faculty who do not wish to participate or get caught up in these protests. Hence, we will be moving through a series of restricted access measures during the G20 -- the week of June 21-27.
