Can you say Hundreds of lawsuits?

Supreme Court says people can seek damages for charter breaches even if there's no actual loss
Considering this ruling was for breach of charter rights where the police were not found to have done anything wrong, imagine if all the wrongfully arrested people at the G20 protests in Toronto sued? According to this ruling they could and they would win. I hope they do. Our police and governments need to know that they can't get away with breaking the law and ignoring our charter rights.
