    it'll be funny if they just arrest everyone there and put them in the detention centre. well kinda funny anyway.
    I shall watch you all on the news, please bring big signs that say "hi dirty girl" so I can pick you out of the crowd.

    I hope the protesters don't yell out peaceful protest because that doesn't seem to work.

    looks like they are heading to Queen & Spadina in a symbolic move

    looks like the cops blocked them from going that way.

    at least this protest has a concise message and isn't a myriad of different objectives.

    not a bad size crowd either. more than i anticipated.

    There is such a mix of different ages of protesters, many saying that Queen & Spadina was so offensive to them that they had to come out and protest.

    probably because people there aren't interested in the pulse of the city of Toronto provided 24 hours a day. :p

    so what was the outcome of that walk? I didn't see much coverage of it.

    there wasn't a burning cop car involved so there wasn't any compelling reason to cover it.
