G20 and The Public Works Protection Act



arrest1The G20 is being held in Toronto June 26th and 27th at the Convention Centre. If you live in Toronto you may have noticed or see the plethora of Police and security they have set up within a massive perimeter around the Convention Centre itself. The perimeter takes up a good portion of the city and unsurprisingly, legalities have been attached to this permimeter which change and take away the rights and freedoms of any person who isn’t a “peace officer” who enters.

Under normal Canadian law no person is forced or required to ever identify themselves to any police person or public servant. The police may request that you offer the information and pretend its mandatory but anyone who knows the law knows you do not have to provide this information.

Since the 20 people coming to this summit are so utterly important and it would be a disaster if any citizens were to expose what they are really doing, the city has implemented the rarely used “Public Works Protection Act”

What this act essentially does is change the law in the area they randomly define and take away the rights and freedoms of those entering the area or who come within a 5 meter radius of the fencing they have placed around the perimeter.

As it states in the act:
Link to Full Act

Powers of guard

(2)Every person appointed as a guard under this section has for the purposes of this Act the powers of a peace officer.

Powers of guard or peace officer

3.A guard or peace officer,

(a) may require any person entering or attempting to enter any public work or any approach thereto to furnish his or her name and address, to identify himself or herself and to state the purpose for which he or she desires to enter the public work, in writing or otherwise;

(b) may search, without warrant, any person entering or attempting to enter a public work or a vehicle in the charge or under the control of any such person or which has recently been or is suspected of having been in the charge or under the control of any such person or in which any such person is a passenger; and

(c) may refuse permission to any person to enter a public work and use such force as is necessary to prevent any such person from so entering. R.S.O. 1990, c. P.55, s. 3.

The act makes it obvious enough, but it essentially says any “peace officer” has full authority to ask for name and address of anyone in the area and that person must obey or will be arrested and charged with a criminal offence. So a request that isn’t a law has become a law within the G20 perimeter, meaning those who wish to have a voice will be deterred greatly.

Already, Charles Veitch of The Love Police has been arrested for failing to provide identification to the “peace officers” in the area. He was held over night and will stand before a judge to discuss his case. As we commonly say in shock amongst each other behind the scenes at Collective Evolution “what a planet.”

Here is the video of Charles being arrested. Thanks Press For Truth for covering the event perfectly.
