The G20 Papers: Links to articles based on summit security Documents

The 'G20 Papers' is a trove of documents on security operations at the Toronto G20, and Huntsville G8, Summits. These files were obtained through freedom-of-information legislation, predominantly from the RCMP but also from other police and security organizations.

We are now releasing these records to the public, in hopes that they will shed more light on the security apparatus for the G20, and help promote broader use of the Access to Information Act, and other freedom of information laws.  Follow this link to see a list of documents in the G20 Papers, and download them to read yourself.

The following is a list of Stories which have already been written based on documents in the G20 Papers:
