Toronto Police, Pied!

The Toronto Sun reports on the order of the Canadian Supreme Court upholding the $5,000 award to a tenacious lawyer who was strip searched by the police during a 2002 protest at the G20 summit on suspicion of having a pie intended for then Canadian Prime Minister Jean Chretien.

Now, if you are suspected by the gendarmes of having an untoward pie concealed on your person,would not a simple "pat down" suffice to assure the authorities that you are pie-less?  The Toronto Sun also wonders at this obvious point but for the Canadian constabulary the answer is: apparently, not.  The Toronto police now get to pay Mr. Alan Cameron Ward his long overdue, $5,000 judgment.
