They were running towards me, throwing rocks and golf balls. Tension was building. I put down the cameras just in time to quickly put on my gas mask. The riot squad was forming a line, and just as I was running towards the action, Frank Gunn pulled me aside and reminded me that my role was to stay behind the police lines in case protesters were to break through.
I was part of the Canadian Press team that covered the G20 summit in Toronto.
Because of Frank’s guidance among the chaos, I was able to capture a photograph that showed Toronto’s financial district like we’ve never seen before, and thus add to our team coverage.
