O Canada? Peaceful G20 Protest at Queen and Spadina


This video footage of a peaceful G20 protest at Queen and Spadina is jarring. It's clearly a peaceful protest, something we're allowed to do in this city, and the protesters are even united in their singing of O Canada.

Then, the police charge.  Watch this.

That footage turns my stomach.  This isn't my Toronto.

That same intersection is the subject of more controversy tonight.  I understand hundreds are being held there by police without explanation.  Thanks for coming out, G20.
