Protestors demonstrating over the deaths of George Floyd and Regis Korchinski-Paquet clashed with police outside police headquarters in Toronto.
The protest against the deaths of Floyd and Korchinski-Paquet began at 2 p.m. today and while the original plan was to march to Queen's Park, they instead diverted and headed to police HQ. Protestors called police "white supremacists," "thugs" and "the real virus."
One protestor called a photojournalist a racist and threatened him. The crowd chanted "say her name," as regards Regis Korchinski-Paquet.
The protest that was spurred by the death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet, who died after falling from her 24th floor balcony while police were in her home, and George Floyd, who was killed in Minneapolis by police last week.
Floyd's death was recorded and a video of his suffocation spread across the internet. Korchinski-Paquet was noted by her family to have been suffering mental distress.
