Toronto G20 fences have $5.5 million pricetag, report says

Quebec's La Presse is reporting that the G20 security barricades beginning to line the streets of Toronto will cost about $5.5 million. The French language paper said the contract, worth $5,488,788.90 (who knows why it wasn't rounded up to a flat dollar), was awarded to Toronto-based construction firm SNC-Lavalin.

Public Works spokesperson Marjolaine Rocheleau confirmed the price tag and said it was the lowest submission.
