The official G20 may have ended, but our special alternative coverage has not. Over 900 people have been arrested in the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. Activists and protesters continue to call for an end to police brutality and intimidation. We prepared a very full and engaging episode of CiTR News 101 for you and we encourage you to have a listen, leave your comments, and let us know if there are other G20 stories that should be told.
The following guests are on interviewed in this special edition:
Don Davies, NDP MP for Vancouver-Kingsway and Critic for Public Safety
Stephen Davis, accredited McGill Daily photographer assaulted by G20 police
Natasha Peters, activist, who provided her account of the G20 protests and police brutality
David Eby, Executive Director, British Columbia Civil Liberties Association
We will also have audio from a CP24 interview with Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair
