Diversity is our strength: City of Toronto staff report approves bag screening and metal detectors at city hall

City staff recommend bag screening at city hall, metal detectors in council chamber

City staff are proposing bag searches at the public doors of city hall and metal detectors in the council chamber as part of revised recommendations for enhanced security measures.

The suggested changes, which staff say are in line with other Canadian cities, come after council postponed making a controversial decision on stepping up security and directed staff to consult the public.
