I've just left Bay and Adelaide.
There were like one hundred police officers from Montreal and they were blocking the street (near Bay and Adelaide).
It feels like it's getting a little more tense and that's why I was starting to head home, I was starting to feel a little weird out here.
People are milling around, walking west on Adelaide towards University, carrying flags, they're yelling at police.
The police are being pretty peaceful, they're not inciting anything, they're just standing there. The protesters are standing around and yelling at them.
