Views from Toronto's climate strike — sights, sounds and signs from the massive event
Friday's rally at Queen's Park and march through downtown among the largest events in Canada
Tens of thousands of protesters flooded the streets of Toronto on Friday as part of a rising movement demanding swift action on climate change.
The rally comes on the second week of global climate strikes, a youth-led movement inspired by the Swedish activist Greta Thunberg.
Protests were held in dozens of cities across Canada Friday, but one of the biggest events in the country was held at Queen's Park. Here are some of the scenes from the event:
