More than 2,000 people marched Saturday afternoon in Toronto to demand an independent inquiry into police actions during last month's G20 summit.
Organized by labour, community and student groups, the rally headed south from Queen's Park, site of the Ontario legislature, through downtown to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, where the summit took place June 26 and 27.
"What do we want? Public inquiry! When do we want it? Now!" the demonstrators chanted as they filed into a park across from the convention centre.
