Dozens of people were arrested at the University of Toronto on Sunday, a day after militant activists caused widespread damage on the opening day of the G20 summit.
About 50 people were rounded up after police found street-type weapons and black clothing hidden in bushes. It's believed the bricks were to be used by anarchists who caused widespread damage on Saturday.
A heavy police presence continued, a day after dozens of storefronts were damaged, as well as police cars and other vehicles.
