TORONTO—A large number of pro-Palestine protesters gathered on the streets by Toronto City Hall on Oct. 9, blocking traffic, two days after Hamas launched terrorist attacks on Israel.

Ahead of the protest, Toronto Mayor Olivia Chow said the rally, which had been planned to be held at the base of city hall, Nathan Phillips Square, was unsanctioned and wouldn’t be allowed to be held on the city grounds.

“The Government of Canada has rightly listed Hamas as a terrorist organization and we simply must not tolerate any support of terror, full stop,” Ms. Chow said in a statement on Oct. 9.

“I am receiving updates from the Chief of Police, who assures me they will investigate and address any suspected incidents of hate.”
