Tor Sandberg is the program director for Rabble TV and was in charge of coordinating their video coverage during the Summit. Sandberg met up with Spacing producer Mieke Anderson at Queen’s Park, which only a few weeks ago was Toronto’s only official protest zone, a.k.a. “designated free speech area.”
