TORONTO, ON (WKBW) -- The G8 and G20 summits being held in Canada have drawn more than just the world leaders.

Protesters demonstrating outside of the G8 summit in Huntsville, Ontario, and in Toronto for G20 summit have security forces on high alert.

A major demonstration is planned for Saturday at the G20 summit, and there is the possibility of a large protest here in the United States as well.

Heightened security has been placed at all border crossings, including the Peace Bridge and Rainbow Bridge in Niagara Falls.

Because of the strict security and special laws in Canada, many protesters may avoid crossing the border and plan protests on the U.S. side of the border.
