Seems Chet was right. Commenting on my despairing post on this poll, indicating that 73 per cent of Canadians were good with the G8/G20 police state, he said:
Most people thought the War Measures Act was justified when Trudeau used it. It's early days yet.
That poll was published on June 30 (doesn't say when it was taken).
Here's another poll -- albeit online -- going on right now.
The figures are completely reversed with 72 per cent now saying that the police response was not appropriate.
We've got to keep up the pressure. And make sure the shit lands where it should.
Update from deBeauxOs: via a tweet from A_Z, a news item says an independent civilian inquiry into G-20 police tactics has just been approved by the Toronto Police Services Board.
