Thirty days after the summit, the gains look modest; the losses extensive. The balance could change, but it would take a strenuous effort by public authorities to fix what they broke.
And yesterday, CBC ran a story about a young woman who is suing the Toronto Police over injuries from rubber bullets.
Police claimed the shots were "muzzle blasts" — harmless blanks meant to scare protesters, not hurt them. They deny using rubber bullets.
But photographs of Gray's wounds taken by an emergency room doctor show she was indeed injured in the chest and arm.
There are over 900 comments, by far most of them in support of the protesters.
If you've got a few minutes, go do the 'thumbs up/down' thing. Or leave a comment. The media will keep covering it as long as we keep paying attention.
ADDED: From the lawnorder Toronto Sun. Yup, they lied.
Rubber bullets were fired at the crowd outside the Eastern Ave. set up during the G20 Summit, a Toronto Police spokesman said Tuesday — one day after releasing erroneous information.
Mark Pugash corrected a statement he made Monday to the Toronto Sun saying no rubber bullets were fired outside the temporary prisoner processing centre, saying he had received the wrong information.
The person who provided the mistaken information called him Tuesday and said that rubber bullets were fired outside the centre, Pugash said.
Slam-dunk for the gal with the lawsuit. Slam-dunk for more costs for the rest of us as all these lawsuits get swept under expensive carpets.
