TORONTO – An Ontario Court is ordering the province’s police watchdog to re-examine a complaint about the instructions Toronto’s top cops gave to officers during the G20 protests three years ago.
The complaint comes from Jason Wall, a Toronto man whose arrest in June 2010 was deemed unlawful after he brought his case before the Independent Police Review Director.
Wall had asked the IPRD to further investigate the role Toronto police Chief Bill Blair and other senior officers played in his arrest.
The Ontario Divisional Court has issued a ruling saying the IPRD’s failure to do so was “unreasonable” and “violates principles of procedural fairness and natural justice.”
Wall had been walking home on June 27, 2010 when he was arrested by police looking for those responsible for vandalism during the G20 protests.
He was held for 28 hours before he was released without being charged.
