G20 Toronto - Damages. Who Should Pay?

Pressure builds on Ottawa for compensation - thestar.com
Considering that the Harper government foisted the summit on downtown Toronto, and considering that the Toronto Police (who were in charge of all the policing outside of the security area) stood by and did nothing and allowed the black block vandals to vandalize for 1.5 hours without stepping in to stop them, I would recommend that the federal government and the Toronto Police split the bill to compensate businesses who had property damaged. The city could take the amount to be paid by the Toronto Police out of their next year's budget and just give them that much less.
It only seems fair.
