Subject: Unfinished 2010 business: determining who gave orders to the police G20 weekend, June 26th-27th.
"This has been a momentous year for Canada and we can all be proud of the many successes achieved both here at home and around the world," concluded the Prime Minister's New Years message. http://www.pm.gc.ca/eng/news.asp?category=1&id=3861&featureId=6&pageId=26 . Unfortunately "a momentous year" as well in terms of orders being given to police that went against their stated purposes. *
This video, http://underoccupation.com/g20/ , reviews events in a time sequence. Action being taken against individuals by the police before the weekend. No response, though forces were available, directed at apprehending those committing illegal acts over a 90 minute period. Then, after telltale clothing was removed and the perpetrators blended into those present at the designated rallying park, police who had been gathered together charged against all present. An action physically wounding some and leading to random arrests. Actions which became the norm the remainder of the evening of June 26th, 2010 and the day of June 27th.
What was the rationale for the hiatus in police action against the Black Bloc activists.? As recorded such had been taken against individuals before the formal G20 meeting and were in such a magnitude taken subsequently? At what level of decision making and by whom were these decisions made? Answers to these questions have not as yet been entered into a public record.
Can such orders be given again leading to the arrest and incarceration Canadians peaceably protesting, or coming out of a restaurant or seeking to enter a domicile ? At this point the answer must be "Yes". Those who did so can order such police actions again for nothing has changed.
It is argued here a "Public judicial Inquiry into Toronto G20" remains a necessity so the chain of command resulting in this abuse of power be known. Be known and lead to those with decision making, order giving powers when considering giving the police orders resulting in Canadians being mistreated as recorded in http://underoccupation.com/g20/ know that they will be held publicly responsible and accountable.
