An anti-black and anti-Indigenous racism protest is scheduled to take place in Toronto today.

The protest is organized by the Not Another Black Life group. The goal is to highlight police involved deaths in both Canada and the U.S.

A Minnesota police officer is now facing charges in the death of George Floyd, an innocent African American man who was killed by police this week during his arrest.

Floyd’s murder by cop comes on the heels of Ontario's Special Investigations Unit investigating the death of Regis Korchinski-Paquet, who fell from the balcony of a 24th-floor Toronto apartment while police were in the home this past Wednesday.

The protest route will begin at Christie Pits this afternoon and will proceed south to Queen's Park. Toronto Mayor John Tory is encouraging protesters to practice physical distancing in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
