WHERE: Outside the KPMG offices at Bay and Adelaide streets.
WHEN: 12:30–1 p.m.
WHAT: Stop the Cuts, prominently featuring OCAP participants, hit all the boxes in protest bingo today at the KPMG offices today. From playing Rage Against the Machine through speakers to a lone black balaclava anarchy flag–waver flipping off the skyscraper for photo ops. The crowd is more milling than marching in the heat, with little chanting or drama in evidence. KPMG was commissioned by the City of Toronto to produce a series of reports detailing potential budget savings. Those reports, currently being debated at City Hall, are widely seen as setting the stage for a long list of service cuts.
When first published, this post said that the protest was organized by OCAP. In fact, while the event’s MC was John Clarke of OCAP and many protesters identified as OCAP members, the protest was organized by Stop the Cuts.
