Six of the seven reports initiated after the G20 Summit weekend in Toronto have now been completed. The sordid details of what happened that weekend are now well documented, and the pressing questions now are how justice can best be served.
For me, personally, the past week has been one during which I could finally start breathing more easily, as a Canadian who has always loved my country for, among other things, its respect for the rule of law and its love of the freedoms and civil rights enshrined in the Charter.
One of the most outstanding things is that they are going up the chain of command to find out who gave what order when.
It's not just the officer who pulled the trigger on my daughter [Ridge woman shot with rubber bullets, July 2, 2010, TIMES], but the officer who was in charge of him, and on and on.
At this point, it looks as if charges will be brought against a lot of officers.
Personally, I won't be completely satisfied until Chief Bill Blair, who has been holding back evidence throughout this period, is brought down.
I have still not heard Conservatives admit that anything wasn't perfect during this weekend [MP must answer, July 23, 2010 Letters, TIMES]. That, to me, is completely shameful.
