Ontario ombudsman to investigate G20 security law
Ontario ombudsman AndrĂŠ Marin announced today that he is launching an investigation into the origin and communication of the G20 security law that was passed by provincial government before the summit in Toronto.
The investigation will examine the involvement of the Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services in the creation of the law and its communication (or miscommunication) to police, media and citizens. To date, the Ombudsman's office has received 22 complaints about the G20, including complaints of lack of transparency and confusion about police authority.
The investigation, which will be conducted by the Special Ombudsman Response Team, is expected to be completed within 90 days.
Ontarians are advised to call 1-800-263-1830 if they have relevant information or complaints to file with the Ontario ombudsman.
