This is how Toronto reacted to the Ghomeshi verdict

Protesters gathered at Old City Hall in Toronto yesterday in the wake of the Jian Ghomeshi verdict to show support for victims of sexual abuse. The main rally took place in the early evening with speeches from, among others, Ghomeshi accuser Lucy DeCouture and Councillor Kristyn Wong-Tam.
