The third and final public hearing for the Toronto Police’s civilian review of the G20 will be held on Monday in Scarborough.

Toronto was under seige during the G20 Summit in Toronto in June, 2010. The G20 was the site of the largest mass arrests in Canadian history.

It is the last opportunity for members of the public to make submissions to the Independent Civilian Review into Matters Relating to last summer’s G20 Summit, called by the Toronto Police Services Board to review the board’s and the police service’s activities during the summit and the role the police board should play in future large-scale events.

2010 G20 - to date, 1,105 people were arrested (participants, bystanders, journalists) and 2 police officers. The June, 2010 G20 summit was the site of the largest mass arrests in Canadian history.

The review is being led by retired judge and former Chief Justice of Ontario, John Morden.

The hearing will be held at the Scarborough Civic Centre, 150 Borough Dr., from 5:30 to 9 p.m. To speak at the hearing, individuals must complete an application form online or sign up in-person on the day of the hearing. For more information visit www.g20review.ca

    The most dreadful part of this whole fiasco, was when the Premier and the Mayor of Toronto and the Chief of police all got together and created the lie about the fence and the space that the public had to be away from it. When the Chief of police was interviewed after the fact, he smiled when the press asked him about the lie.

    I hope the McGuinty loses, along with Blair for the big lie to the public, with a big smile!
