CBC's Amber Hildebrandt is on the the streets of Toronto and will be filing hourly updates during the G20 summit. Here's the latest.
The Queen's Park grounds are a sea of colourful umbrellas and placards as diverse as the causes represented here today.
Among them: Free Tibet, There is no Planet B, Capitalism is the Crisis, End occupation of Kashmir -- and perhaps the most all-encompassing, " Environmental Economic Political Social Justice."
Before the speeches began, a guitarist strummed a little ditty, singing " burn it down burn it down we're going to burn it down."
A sign of things to come?
