First Look at Security In Toronto For G20

Toronto_police_e_595761artwOn Monday June 21st we took a stroll down towards the Convention Centre in Toronto to get an early glance at what has been set up in terms of security for the upcoming G20 Summit. 5 days before the summit itself there were already hundreds and hundreds of cops and security guards constantly swarming the streets in a very large perimeter far away from the summit itself. To see organized packs of 6 cops walking the streets in unison showed a complete state of paranoia. There was also a clear indication that having so many cops and guards walking the streets was a serious push to create an intimidating energy and slowly plant seeds in the mind of the pedestrians that having this many cops around is a good thing.

Walking through the checkpoints into the gated and fenced off area you could feel a real dense energy emanating throughout the area. The amount of fear and power coming from the intention of the area made everything feel thick and intimidating.

Before entering into the gated area we stopped on the steps of a financial building and pulled out the camera. Within 10 or 15 seconds a security guard had moved closer to us and radioed a janitor who was nearby. The janitor made his way over to us and turned up the volume on the listening device he was holding – to allow the other guard to hear the conversation we were having. We moved on quite quickly after that.

Our first look days before the summit proved that they are not falling short of overdoing the security at all. They must expect some serious protesting with the amount of security they have. I would also not be surprised whatsoever if many cops will be dressed as civilians to cause problems so they can begin beating and fending off the peaceful protestors.

No day would be complete without something comical, we saw a few TTC busses (Toronto public transit) labeled “Special” drive by completely filled with cops all making their way to a different area within the sectioned off part of the city. Seeing all those cops on the “special” bus was quite the joke to see.
