The Canadian House of Commons called a special session to discuss a response to the violent unrest occurring in Toronto, Canada and across the United States. The riots in Toronto took place after a black man was killed by the police the previous night. The incident occurred after demonstrators had gathered outside the U.S. consulate in Toronto to protest the acquittal of four white police officers in Los Angeles charged with beating a black suspect during an arrest. The Canadian justice minister had previously announced the introduction of legislation to limit the amount of force a police officer may use to subdue a fleeing suspect. close
