Toronto police unveil security tools


presstv.ir

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.

According to CBC News, the security plan for the G20 in Toronto and the G8, which will be held in Ontario, has an estimated cost of more than $1 billion, making it the biggest security operation ever in Canada.

During the summits, cameras will monitor public places; the images could later be used in court as evidence of criminal acts, Reuters reports.

The police said there will be numerous motorcades for the VIPs. This will mean lots of traffic police and escort motorcycles. They added that rubber bullets and police dogs will be used when dealing with protesters.

The demonstration also revealed that the police are going to use sound canons, or Long Range Acoustic Devices.

The device emits a blast of sound, up to 140 decibels, that can harm eardrums. This makes opponents of the devices believe they are more of a crowd control device than a means of communication.

The police, however, say that the device will solely be used as a communications tool.

"Basically it's a warning [device]," said Toronto police Staff Inspector, Bill Neadles.

It's a shame that Canada will most likely disallow protesting of the G20 and G8, just as the US did. All of these new "security measures" are pretty scary and say a lot for the state of affairs with TPTB. Both Canada and the US are turning into police states before our very eyes. What about our right to assemble?

You Canadians have just got to love this. Spending a BILLION dollars to protect people who are meeting to figure out new ways to screw you. Of course they need this protection because people are becoming increasingly aware of just how bad and evil these folks are.

So while they eat caviar and sip expensive wines you can figure out which bill you think you can get by without paying this month. Oh joy!


Calling the LRAD a "communication device" is like calling a clusterbomb a "concussion device".

What do you mean we're not allowed to protest? They're shutting down the university downtown so we can protest albeit I think it's more of a case that they don't want their students/faculty to get hurt. Don't worry about it.





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.


The billion $$ operation should be fun to see in full effect.

AT the SPP summit in Montebello Quebec
the police were caught dressed as protestors while starting violence against the police.
Then they were caught lying about it, then finally they had to admit to it.

Just like Seattle.

The "anarchists" when caught in the past have always turned out to be Black ops.
So much for the fire bombing of the bank recently.

This is about the world wide police state.
this security is touted as costing A BILLION dollars.
WTF!!!
It doesn't say "to serve and protect" anymore on the cruisers.
"To commit and to charge and to collect" should be thier new motto.

So I'll bet our cops have been heavily militarized for the future with that money...

Yes the violence, tear gas and arrests are caused by police not protesters lol.

Honestly though I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the fact that they only spent something like 12m on their security in Pittsburgh yet almost a billion is being spent here (in Canada).

I do hope that it doesn't turn into anything too gruesome, a few of my friends will be protesting. I on the other hand will be escaping from the city for the duration of this summit.

THEY ARE SPENDING 1 BILLION DOLLARS SO THAT PEOPLE CANNOT VOICE THEIR CONCERN TO THE ELITE RICH LEADERS OF THE WORLD IN PERSON. PRETTY SAD THAT MONEY CANNOT BE SPENT ON SOMETHING PRODUCTIVE RATHER THEN COUNTER-PRODUCTIVE HARASSMENT OF PROTESTORS WITH RIGHTS
