The office of Public Safety Minister Vic Toews sends along the following.
“The Minister is being continuously updated on the destructive and violent activity taking place in downtown Toronto. These images are truly shocking to Canadians. Toronto is a world-class city, and the Government of Canada condemns these acts of violence by groups of radical protestors. We commend the outstanding work of the police officers as they continue to maintain order in downtown Toronto. We are taking all measures necessary to ensure Canadians, delegates, media and international visitors remain safe. The Integrated Security Unit and its partners have a comprehensive security plan that has been developed by Canada’s best security experts in the field.”
