Canadian Cops Secretly Used “War Time” Powers During G20 Summit

Wednesday, December 8th, 2010

When leaders from 20 powerful countries amassed in June for the G20 Summit, Canadians were subjected to the greatest “mass violation of civil rights… in Canadian history” according to a report released by Ontario Ombudsman André Marin.

Ontario legislators modified an antiquated war-time law from 1939 – the Public Works Protection Act, designed to protect public buildings during war times – to give the police the jurisprudence to arbitrarily search and detain protesters near their security fence. This was done without explicitly informing the public that the cops now had martial law to instill a police state surrounding the G20 summit.

Legal suppositions aside, what really happened in Toronto is that dissenting voices were quashed with riot squads serving as the muzzle.

Harper and his party shelled out over a billion taxpayer dollars for this little shindig. Thanks to the overbearing police presence, the world’s elites could relish in their luxuries safe from the scorn of the discontented masses.

While they do set a chilling precedent, the events that transpired in Toronto are far from isolated. This kind of oppression happens whenever we have leaders wielding unaccountable power. Inevitably this power will be used perpetuate a system that keeps them sitting atop, even if it means using force.

So, now we see the violence inherent in the system. COME AND SEE THE VIOLENCE INHERENT IN THE SYSTEM!
