Toronto G20 Summit.

It’s almost the Toronto G20 summit, where 20 world leaders come to discuss things such as the economy, global warming, the environment, New World Order, whatever. The city has been turned into a walled-off fortress; a fortified city,like in Medieval times, with 5000 armed police(patrolling the water as well), high  walls and barracades, streets blocked off, and looks like a war zone under invasion! My son is living there for his summer job and is leaving today to visit us for a few days to escape the lock-down(he has been given 6 days off as well as anyone else working downtown in the “secure” zone),assuming he CAN leave, that is! I see news reports every night about it, and it’s very intimidating, like a police state, and they are even stopping, searching, and detaining citizens in the street for no reason; not even protesting; just walking down the street to work or whatever. Big Brother has arrived! The protests have started a few days ago, even before the summit begins. but so far they have been peaceful.There was also a shooting and a bomb scare(I think a “practice run”) and a man was also arrested for having explosives, and they presume was aiming for the summit.. I’d hate to think what will happen when the actual summit begins.This would be a terrorist’s dream; a bomb that would take out 20 of the world’s most powerful leaders. I can see why security is tight yet even so I think they are over-doing it! Security costs are said to be over a BILLION $$$! They expect large-scale violence, protests, rioting, looting, vandalism and the like.This event has the most security ever in the history of the entire country of all time.It will be interesting to see what unfolds over time. I am glad my son will not be there; I was worried at first as his job is 5 blocks from the summit,if there WAS a bomb he may be in the area, and even getting the days off that he might be “curious” and head down there with his buddies to watch the protests and riots and get caught up in it, hauled off or tasered by police, or hurt or even killed in the riots or even possible terrorist attacks.Now he can watch it from here, a safe distance away! I think people DO have the right to PEACEFUL protests,however, as long as they DON’T turn violent, or destructive; there is never any reason for vandalism and such.So it begins…
