There are presently police investigations and road closures/TTC stoppages on Bathurst, Dundas (suspicious package), Danforth between Balford and Walden, and on The Esplanade— now clearing. (Updated 3:20pm)
Bathurst is now clear (2:30pm).
The 53-year-old guy arrested on The Esplanade was near the Novotel that’s the location of a strike/protest action today. His vehicle contained a bizarre array of weapons including batteries, gas tanks, a chainsaw, axe handles, a crossbow, sledgehammer, arrows and a coke bottle (tooth decay– can be deadly). Global Toronto has live coverage photographs and updates.
Meanwhile, the indigenous rights protest is, as of 3:00pm, at Gerrard and Jarvis.
G20 leader cars are coming down St. George/Beverly.
