Christian Tardif is the property manager at 77 and 99 Harbour Square, which is treating the G20 as business as usual. But some condo buildings are thinking about putting up their own fences for the G20 to keep out the rabble-rousers.
Two weeks ago, nobody wanted to be inside the “fence.” Now, some private residences are thinking about putting up their own.
With about 10 days until the G20 summit opens in Toronto, condominium and apartment building property managers are shoring up security in anticipation of the unknown protester threat.
Over the last few weeks, several Harbourfront condo managers have met to discuss how they can better co-ordinate their security strategies, with one idea being to enclose their properties behind a fence — not unlike that big one just up the street.
A perimeter fence will encircle the Westin Harbour Castle hotel on Queens Quay, where international delegates will be staying.
Two condo towers are apparently going ahead with the plan for another fence. However, Christian Tardif, manager of 77 and 99 Harbour Square, said he doesn’t share the fears of some his counterparts.
“For me, if you put up some type of security fence, it will attract the attention of protesters,” he said. “We don’t believe we need extra security at all.”
