Undercover RCMP officer kicked out of Ryerson

Officer in plain clothes tried to monitor 10 G20 protesters from the student paper's office

If you are planning to protest the G20 meeting being held in Toronto, and you want to make plans from the Ryerson University Student Campus Centre, be warned that the RCMP may be watching you. Late Wednesday afternoon, officer Leslie Tull, who was wearing plain clothes, was using the office of student paper the Eyeopener, to observe 10 protesters in the student run building. According to the paper, Tull “refused requests to leave while asking several people in the office if they knew how many exits were in the building and if the protesters could be kicked out.” After Eyeopener staff contacted security,students’ union president Toby Whitfield had Tull escorted off campus.
