Outlet: Ontario Civilian Police Commission Registrar
Release Date: 11/09/2017

On November 9, 2017, the Ontario Civilian Police Commission dismissed Superintendent Mark Fenton’s appeal from findings that he was guilty of misconduct and discreditable conduct for his role in orchestrating unlawful mass arrest of peaceful protestors during the G20 Summit in June 2010.  The Commission also agreed with our submissions that the penalty should be increased, and doubled the length of the suspension imposed at the original hearing.  Sean Dewart and Adrienne Lei acted for the protesters who filed complaints about his breach of their rights under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
