The only person charged under a controversial G20 regulation appeared in court Wednesday to discover his charges have mysteriously disappeared.
Dave Vasey, 31, was exploring the G20 security perimeter June 24 when he was arrested and charged under a temporary regulation. The regulation, which was quietly passed by the province under the 1939 Public Works Protection Act, designated the security zone around the Metro Convention Centre as a “public work” and empowered police to search anyone attempting to enter the perimeter.
So. He walks. There is no accountability, no explanation, no further opportunity for media coverage.
Move along. Nothing to see here.
