Large protests over civil rights violations at the G20 continue to happen in Toronto. Last week,  people “took back” the intersection of Queen and Spadina where riot police famously held people for hours in the rain. On July 17th, Canadians Advocating Political Participation (CAPP) have rallies planned in three cities – Toronto, Ottawa and Vancouver.
