I don't know anymore..

well, the top photo is a montreal policeman being cool outside the royal york hotel. The mounties are here, but most don't have hats, and none have horses. But they do have golf carts. Montreal brought their horses, so there are a lot of horses here, and police from all over--vancouver, northwest territories, regina, calgary and even hamilton. It is a huge operation and the bottom blurry shot is one of the police food delivery golf carts.

and they are going to jam the net, so no phone photos will be making it out.

I am going to be flying my kite and combating the sound cannons with my vuvuzela.

G20 G8 Toronto, I live here

(viewed 993 times)
Please. Allow me a rant.

I used to live in a nice country. We used to be peacekeepers and hockey players, just nice, and oh, we're sorry, we're polite and we're Canadian. Beavers, bears and snow. Well, that's all finished.

We have some kind of idiot running the country and no kind of opposition, so suddenly we are living in some kind of surreal security fantasy that not even the Americans could dream up. Our prime minister has spent a billion + dollars on security for this event. We could solve social housing, make our native people's reserves have plumbing and clean water, maybe do something good. Instead we have an American security company, and sound cannons.

They took up the newspaper boxes, some bike stanchions, all the trash cans, the bus shelters and now the sapling trees so they couldn't be used as weapons. There is a fake lake that cost a couple of hundred thousand for those journalists who can't get outside Toronto..with nice chairs and probably loon calls.

There are two sets of fences, so going anywhere is pretty hard. My bank is closing and so are all the businesses around me. The hot dog guy is gone.

They practise helicopter stuff in the daytime. They refurbished a building so it could be a jail for protesters. So if you thought you might want to protest, say something to the world leaders about the environment for instance, it's been made really clear that you are taking some kind of chance.

Me, I bought a kite.
