When for decades even the poorly managed RCMP have also lied, stolen , misappropriated taxpayer’s, governmental funds, and took false advantage of the overall system, they all next realy now cannot be trusted, and they are not even cost effective thus so why should we all now be surprised that even the Police in Canada’s major cities including Vancouver, Montreal, Winnipeg, Toronto they also tend not to be any better nor it seems the related justice ministers in fact..
Canada’s Police too often they also tend to like to arrest anyone ASAP and next even falsey claim they have done their job well.
At the G20 police fisco, the RCMP, OPP, and the Toronto police were involved, assisted by officers from several Canadian cities.
Toronto Star- Jun 20, 2011 Farrah McBride went to the G20 protests in downtown Toronto, upset by news of vandals smashing windows. But the assistant manager at a restaurant supply store was transformed from spectator to prisoner when police arrested virtually everyone in front of the Hotel Novotel on The Esplanade on the night of Saturday, June 26, 2010. She says she was held, handcuffed, at the temporary Eastern Ave. detention centre without adequate water, food or her correct anti-anxiety medicine. She suffered a severe anxiety attack before she was released without charge after 18 hours. It opened my eyes. I never imagined this would ever happen in Canada,” says McBride, 29. “I totally lost respect for police. I can’t even look at them now.”More than 1100 people were held over the Toronto G20 weekend, the largest mass arrest in Canadian history. …Only 317 people were charged with summit-related criminal offences.And of those, 187 have seen their charges withdrawn, stayed or dismissed, according to statistics released by the Ontario attorney general’s ministry Monday. Just 24 pleaded guilty.“It’s a classic example of police overcharging,” says lawyer Clayton Ruby,Nathalie Des Rosiers, General Counsel of the Canadian Civil Liberties Association, says demonstrators were targeted while simply exercising their democratic rights. Emilie Guimond-Bélanger rode on a chartered bus from Montreal to demonstrate peacefully for economic and women’s rights. Instead, she spent two cold, sleepless nights in custody, struggling to go to the bathroom out of sight of male guards, enduring two strip searches and begging for enough food to counter nausea. Peter Gill, 25, a Vancouver support care worker, says Ontario Provincial Police officers roughly arrested him as he walked away from a peaceful demonstration. He was handed to two Toronto police officers, who threatened to beat him up and drove fast in their squad car, slamming on the brakes so the handcuffed prisoner banged his head on the transparent divider, he says.They would say: “We’re going to pull over here and beat the s—t out of you and pretend you were resisting arrest.”Gill was charged with possessing explosives and weapons. But all he carried were harmless items like snacks and ear plugs, he says. Charges were withdrawn five months later.
Bad cops are never, never acceptable …
