With the upcoming G20 summit looming over downtown Toronto, the event is casting an increasingly larger shadow, one that now stretches as far west as Trinity Bellwoods Park.
Summit officials have chosen the park as the designated protesting area for the G20 summit on June 26 and 27. That means demonstrators — at least, the rule-abiding ones — will be wielding placards and shouting through megaphones from inside a 37-acre residential park, located some two kilometres west of the summit’s outer boundary, or so-called “yellow zone.”
Susan Atkinson was shocked to hear that summit organizers have decided to send hoards of protestors to her neighbourhood park.
So now Canada has designated protesting areas. When this started in the U.S. to keep protestors out of ear shot of George Bush, I thought it was crazy. Is anyone going to protest? Tom
