Toronto Police Chief Bill Blair says his police force will administer between $50-million and $100-million of the federal funds allotted for G20 security.

This amount could represent as much as 10 per cent of the $930-million earmarked in security costs for the G8 and G20 events.

“We did not see this as a windfall opportunity,” Chief Blair told reporters Thursday evening.

He said that his service has made every effort to contain costs and pointed out Toronto Police got no top-up from municipal ratepayers for the summit.

That’s where the feds come in.

The biggest cost, Chief Blair said, is staffing. A “great deal of manpower” is required for security, he said, “between $50 and $100-million of staffing costs related to the Toronto Police Service and our municipal partners,” he said.
