Some have told me it's very "Run Lola Run." My face says it all. To quote my face directly, "Ughhh?"
The one billion dollar price tag on the summits is proof that the country was prepared for anything, but I must say I didn't expect this. What happened is new and shocking for the city of Toronto, for residents and business owners, police and protesters.
As I have a moment to collect my thoughts, I'm left with many unanswered questions from all sides. Why smash windows and set fires? Why storm peaceful protesters? And what came first, the fence or those trying to take down the fence?
I look forward to reading your comments and similar questions below.
