Toronto is hosting the G-20 Summit this year on the June 26-27 (2010) weekend. The G-20 (“Group of 20”) Summit is the “premier forum for international economic cooperation.”

At last year’s convention in London, England, a historic pledge to inject US$1.1 trillion in the credit markets was announced to restore liquidity. This year’s Summit will probably focus on containing the spread of European debt crisis before it leads the world into yet another recession.

So, seeing as I work in the downtown Toronto core where many protests (by Environmentalist, Socialist, Human Rights groups etc) are anticipated, I’m planning to be citizen photo-journalist for the big event. Since I have no intention of being part of any protests, my photographs and coverage will be from a third-party point of view.
