Senior Toronto cop faces G20 disciplinary hearing starting Wednesday

A long-delayed disciplinary hearing is finally slated to start Wednesday for the most senior police officer charged in relation to the mass violation of civil rights during the violence-marred G20 summit four years ago.
Civil liberties groups said they would be keeping a close eye on the month-long proceedings against Toronto Supt. David (Mark) Fenton given the unprecedented detentions of more than 1,000 people and the heavy security expected at next year’s Pan-Am Games in Toronto.

The charges against Fenton under the Police Services Act will be heard starting on Wednesday, November 19, 2014, at the Toronto Police Service Auditorium, 2nd Floor, 40 College Street, at 10 a.m. Peter Grossi, a retired Ontario Superior Court judge, will preside over the hearing.
TVO's Steve Paikin is expected to be a witness.
