The demonstration follows widespread transit disruptions across Canada after Via Rail cancelled trains due to the issue.\nToronto Police Operations tweeted photos of the significant protest on Friday afternoon, updating the public on its progress.\nThe demo started at Trinity Park, according to police tweets. It then moved across to Yonge-Dundas Square, closing the intersection to traffic and forcing buses to be diverted.\nPolice are advising that drivers should expect to find road closures in the area.\nAs of 5:28 p.m. ET, officers were assisting in crowd control and attempting to help TTC buses get through the throngs.\nPhotos and video footage from the scene show the scale of the action.\nAccording to a tweet and a Facebook event posted by climate action group Extinction Rebellion Toronto, the protest is a joint effort between XR, Fridays For Future Toronto, and other groups in solidarity with Wet'suwet'en land defenders.\nPer the event details, the action was scheduled from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m.\nProtests have been ongoing both in Toronto and across Canada for several weeks now over the First Nations issues.\nDEMONSTRATION: (UPDATE)Yonge St & Dundas St E-intersection is CLOSED- demonstration is in the middle of the intersection- ROAD CLOSURE: N/B Yonge at Shuter, W/B Dundas at Victoria, E/B Bay at Dundas, S/B Yonge at Edward- TTC buses diverted @TTCnotices#GO320476^al pic.twitter.com/7szlmhfqPI— Toronto Police Operations (@TPSOperations) February 14, 2020\nJust earlier this week, demonstrators were filmed at Yonge and Eglington.\nMeanwhile, last weekend, rail lines between Toronto and Ottawa were blocked and GO Transit and Via Rail service had to be scrapped as a result.\nDEMONSTRATION: (UPDATE)Yonge St & Dundas St E- officers o/s assisting with traffic & crowd control- officers assisting TTC buses to get through intersection @TTCnotices - expect delays, unknown how long protest will go on for#GO320476^al pic.twitter.com/yFIlsCHfeo— Toronto Police Operations (@TPSOperations) February 14, 2020\nSince then, of course, the transit situation has got significantly worse.\nVia Rail cancelled all routes in Canada on Thursday as the continuation of service became less and less feasible.\nBREAKING: Protest crossing through @CFtoeatonCentre in #toronto. cc. @CityNews @CTVToronto @blogTO pic.twitter.com/GtZv0zBgHy— Steven Branco (@mrstevenbranco) February 14, 2020\nProtest at Yonge/Dundas. pic.twitter.com/YF3ijuwFDz— k (@dumanoir) February 14, 2020\nProtesters at Toronto’s Yonge and Dundas Square.
