Toronto police admits 'mistakes were made' in response to G20 class-action settlement

Toronto police have released a statement in which the force said ‘we regret that mistakes were made’ during the G20 summit in 2010.

In April of this year, a $16.5-million settlement was reached in a class-action lawsuit over mass arrests at the 2010 G20 summit that was held on the weekend of June 26 and June 27.

The settlement comes after 10 years of court proceedings and negotiations between the Toronto Police Services Board and representatives for over 1,000 people who were arrested during the summit.

Under the settlement, those arrested were awarded compensation between $5,000 and $24,700, depending on their experiences.
