A Halifax environmental activist taking part in the G20 protests in Toronto plans to visit the detention centre where fellow protesters are being held.
"I think I'll go down to the jail and do some solidarity," David Bush of the Canadian Youth Climate Coalition said Sunday. "I'll just sit outside, be pretty relaxed, and if people are being released, then just say 'Hi' and offer them coffee and things like that."
Bush said many of the people arrested Saturday were not responsible for the violent outbreak that happened blocks from where the summit of world leaders was being held.
