CJFE is concerned about the arrest and treatment of Toronto Star journalist Alex Consiglio, charged with trespassing for taking photos on June 2 of an injured GO Transit officer at Union Station in Toronto.
As political parties and local candidates campaign for your vote, CJFE encourages you to take the time to ask your candidates about their stance on critical free expression issues. Week One, ask your candidates if they support a public inquiry into the G20 Summit.
Eight months ago the policing of the G20 Summit in Toronto resulted in numerous free expression violations. Although CJFE and many other organizations have called for a public inquiry, the Government of Canada has yet to implement one.
