G420 Summit at Yonge-Dundas Temporarily Stopped by Police

Pro-marijuana activists held their counter summit at the Yonge-Dundas Square in downtown Toronto called the G420 Summit but as soon as it begun it was temporarily stopped by police officers.

On Saturday, prior to the chaos that engulfed the downtown core of Toronto, activists that support the legalization of marijuana protested at the Yonge-Dundas Square, which they dubbed as the G420 Summit.

Under heavy rain, demonstrators carried signs supporting the use of marijuana and many danced to the music that was played from a truck that had a flag promoting the site: whyprohibition.ca

However, a few moments after the counter summit began, police officers started to give the organizers a hard time by telling them they cannot do this and that they must leave the premise right away.

One organizer started explaining to the one officer that he has sought the permission from the G20 Summit officials and city officials, which they approved, according to the organizer with a medical license.

After discussions and explanations, the protesters stayed and marched their way to Queen’s Park to join an even bigger rally.
