Cornwall ON – There were two protests at the G20 in Toronto Saturday June 26th. The first, the largest, completely peaceful. There was structure. There was a time frame. And then there were those that it looks like were not interested in a rally, but as they rarely get play off opportunities in Toronto had their own Montreal style riot.
Apparently many of those that burnt the police car were from Labelle Province.
Frankly I’m so saddened that important and real messages that the world needs to hear; not just the leaders, but the voters, are being muzzled by this utter nonsense.
You can see as I walk into the march, and through it the real tenor of the protest.
People wanted to dance. They wanted to vent their emotions in a positive and productive way.
And there were some powerful ideas that we probably should all consider like the message from Oxfam.
And from Leaders like Kumi Naidoo from Greenpeace and Sid Ryan from the Ontario Federation of Labour.
Sadly those messages. Those peaceful thousands are being drowned out by violence and petty evil.
