Let Them Eat Broken Glass

I watched an extraordinary interview with the head of the G20 security command center, on the National. This gentleman made it absolutely clear that the $1 billion spent on security meant securing the safety of the assembled politicians. To him, the damage done to Toronto was an acceptable cost of ensuring the safety of those who mattered. The journalist asking the questions was gobsmacked by his offhand dismissal of any concerns other than those of the VIP's (he kept mentioning helicopter landing coordinations and motorcade details as if that was supposed to make people feel better). I suspect many Toronto residents were shaking their heads in disbelief as well. The message is there for all to see, unless you are of the elite, you might as well just crawl away and die, for all the police care. Welcome to Canada, where the oligarchs play and the rest of us clean up their messes.
