just try talking to a guy in full riot gear. He can't talk anyway because he's got his gas mask on.

montreal police

for factotum. I have to say of all the riot police, they get the award for being the worst or the nicest. When people approached them with their really bad French, trying hard, they smiled. Smiling riot police is a no no.

today, I took comfort in banksy's rat

(viewed 912 times)
Banksy was in Toronto and left us with a few gifts. This rat is probably the smallest. It is on Phoebe Street, just off Spadina, in Chinatown. Today when all hell was breaking loose, the rat was there, right around the corner. I kept thinking of Banksy's guy with the bandana over his mouth, throwing flowers, because there were a lot of covered faces. But no flowers.

I am ashamed of my country. A billion dollars could change lives, give people independence and self-respect. No matter what happens, at least prime minister Harper will never be re-elected--the wrath of average Canadians is so great. Toronto has been changed into a fortress, a horrible place. I hope no one gets hurt.

It's important to keep an eye on the good things. Oscar and I spent time at Dufferin Grove Park, with our friends Elliot, Solomon and Livia. Dufferin Grove is just the best park in the city, and the magic there should be spread downtown.

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.
