A peek at the G20 security

On Thursday, the summits’ Integrated Security Unit will have a briefing to “provide a better understanding of its role and the resources that will be deployed to secure the G20 Summit in late June.”

In other words: Catch a glimpse of some of the things $1 billion in security can buy.

According to a press release, the highlights include “demonstrations by the TPS Mounted Unit, RCMP canine unit and other teams from ISU partner agencies.”

The mounted units and canine squads sound a bit more fun than the G8 security technical briefing happening in Huntsville, where the highlights will include “include demonstrations by the OPP, RCMP and the Canadian Forces.”
