Toronto Mayor John Tory will soon be publicly meeting with members of Black Lives Matter to discuss racism and equity, especially in reference to police activity.

Black Lives Matter has been protesting the treatment of black citizens by police officers across North America.

The last time the mayor met with representatives and supporters of this group in a private setting, it led to a lot of shouting and name calling. Tory said he couldn’t get a word in. Suffice to say, it wasn’t exactly productive.
