Fortress Toronto: Massive Security Clampdown for G8/G20 Meetings Most Expensive in Canadian History

World leaders have started arriving for the G8 and G20 meetings amidst a massive security crackdown that will mark the most expensive three days in Canadian history. Large swaths of Toronto’s downtown core have the appearance of a police state, with an estimated deployment of over 19,000 security personnel—nearly five times the number at the G20 in Pittsburgh last year. The security price tag is around $1 billion, and some predict the total summit cost will surpass $2 billion. [includes rush transcript]

Day 4 of the G20 and rebellions. The Indigenous Sovereignty March was the biggest one yet, with over a thousand peeps braving the nasty Toronto heat to show solidarity with Native folks. It was inspiring to see so many settlers coming out to support this action.
