I saw a gathering of about 150 people, some holding Chinese flags, outside the CIBC at Spadina and Bremner around 6 p.m. this evening. Several of them told me they were hoping to see China's President Hu Jintao and his motorcade.

The larger group held a red banner with yellow lettering for a Chinese-Canadian group in Hamilton, and Chinese and Canadian flags. There was also a drummer.

A group of seven people stood in front holding up a yellow Falun Dafa banner with red lettering. One of them told me they wanted the Chinese leader to respect human rights and stop the persecution of Falun Gong.
