Income loss due to the G20 Summit

Expectations are that the Summit will produce broad-based benefits for the local community, such as increased tourism and wider exposure to international media. The federal government has developed an ex-gratia payment policy to provide payments for certain business losses stemming from security measures taken locally to protect the leaders and ensure the smooth functioning of the event.

  1. Oh yes, Toronto is certainly going to be in the spotlight for the next couple of days. Let's hope it will be shown in the best light possible. I have already read some critical views, though - especially about Toronto becoming isolated due to canceling many trains etc. (and other security measures)
