“It is imperative that there be a full public inquiry into what happened during the G20 in order to get at the truth and ensure it doesn’t happen again.
The maintenance of public confidence in law enforcement demands nothing less.”
The Canadian Civil Liberties Association and the National Union of
Public and General Employees are pleased to present this new report,
based on the Breach of the Peace – G20 Summit: Accountability in
Policing and Governance public hearings the two organizations held in
Toronto and Montreal in November 2010.
Based on the issues identified over the course of the public hearings,
the report offers a comprehensive overview of the major civil
liberties violations that took place during the G20 Summit, and puts
forward a series of recommendations aimed at protecting constitutional
rights in future public order policing operations.
CCLA invites you to download and read this new report. We look forward
to your comments, questions and feedback.
Eight months after the events of the G20, there are a number of
ongoing inquiries that are seeking to shed light on what
happened. However, none of these investigations have a broad enough
mandate to look at all the aspects of policing and public safety and
CCLA and NUPGE continue to believe that only a federal, public inquiry
can deliver the answers that Canadians deserve.
We ask you to take a stand today, and to send the message below to
Prime Minister Stephen Harper and/or Ontario Premier Dalton McGuinty
