G20 Police Inquiry Pledged
Freedom government will require future
international political meetings
"The Progressive Conservatives under Tim Hudak have said an inquiry would be too expensive. That, to me, is a dangerous cop out. An inquiry will cost very little in comparison to the cost of the G20 event, and nothing is more costly than the loss of the freedom of the individual, including the loss of the freedom publicly to express discontent with government policy. An inquiry is necessary so that we can know how to avoid future mishandlings of such events.
"Moreover, if one thing is clear even without an inquiry, it is that controversial international political meetings like the G20 are far too disruptive and destructive to be held in Ontario's cities and other populated areas. One point one billion dollars is far more than enough to build and staff a suitable facility in a secure, remote location, so that the lives, liberty, and property of Ontario citizens are not violated. A Freedom government will require all future international political events to be held only in secure, remote locations."
