This is a classic case of “can’t they all lose” for me. I guess my punk roots are showing, but I may be the only Torontonian who, on various principles, hates the G20 leaders, the protesters AND the police.

The police demonstrated in Toronto on Saturday that they are simply incapable of keeping the city safe and unwilling to impose law and order.
Cruisers set on fire, bricks and stones thrown at will, windows smashed, property destroyed.
