Another story from the archive, "The Queen's Park Police Riot".

The Ontario Coalition Against Poverty called for a protest on June 15, 2000, called "Fight to Win" against policies of the Ontario Government headed by Premier Mike Harris. About 1000 protesters arrived at Queen's Park after which a delegation asked to be admitted to the parliament in order to speak to representatives. They were denied and then a short time later a Molotov cocktail was thrown, by whom I do not know, and a full fledged riot ensued with many arrests and injuries.
