A law, quietly passed but exposed by the Toronto Mobilization Committee’s Movement Defence Committee, criminalizes human life within 5 meters of the G20 security wall. You can read the law, “ONTARIO REGULATION 233/10″, online, but it won’t be published publicly (in the Ottawa Gazette) until july 3rd – after it is no longer in effect.
In short, if you find yourself five meters from the security fence you can be asked for identification, you can be searched without warrant, and you can be arrested on suspicion of intending to enter the security fence area. Furthermore, you can be arrested and fined on suspecion of “approaching” the security fence area. For example: if you are participating in a march headed in the general direction of the fence and you do not comply with police orders to turn around – you can be arrested, fined, and imprisoned for up to 2 months.
