A desolate Toronto to the likes of which I have never seen or experienced in my whole life! A city that at 4pm on any given day is packed with
MILLIONS of people was just plain empty in most corridors.
Driving down those corridors, 12 police unmarked vans come speeding up and 2 pull in front of us and SLAM on the brakes. 6 cops get out (in total),
with guns pulled right at us, my smoke dropped out of my mouth and onto the floor. After some obscenities conjured up by the police (a few in my
head), the remaining 10 unmarked vans flew by us at (estimating) 80-90km/hr.
During the rallies, there were masked cops portraying violent rally goers. The official explanation was that cops use this security tactic in order to
ween out the actual violent protesters. Instigating this should be an act of terrorism in itself,but it is legal. This was not the first time that
police in canada have been accused of this, and foremost I'm sure it happens everywhere around the world, and it wouldnt surprise me if there is a
company out there that specializes in Riot Instigating Tactical Units or R.I.T.U (my coined term for police instigators).
Every single Starbucks was vandalized and boarded up, and within 20ft to 100ft of every starbucks there was a Second Cup (canadian version of
Starbucks) still up and running, which made me laugh hysterically. If only we Canadians felt so strongly about everything else American that we let
into our Great Country as we did Coffee, Canada would be a much better place to raise a family in. wink.
Now there were also talks of mega dinner parties, over spending and so on and so forth, the same stock pile of crap that always goes on when rich
lavish people come together for a few days to eat heavily, party it up and snort blow and screw prostitutes native to that particular G8/20 summit in
that particular country where the summit is being held.
Here are some of the ridiculous spending:
federal government opened the books on its G20/G8 spending this summer, revealing at least $860 million in costs, which included bills from Future
Shop for microwaves, thousands on pins and trinkets for spouses and millions in hotel bills.
Some of the more head-scratching costs include at least $86,000 on zipper-pulls, and $4,400 on $100 pens for world leaders.
However, the majority of the costs were for security with the RCMP's bill coming in at $330 million.
Some of the RCMP's costs:
* $65 million for accommodations
* $44 million for meals and travel
* $39 million for command centres
* $33 million for private security
* $18 million for "specialized equipment"
Other security agencies sent big bills to Ottawa. Toronto police were paid $144 million by the federal government, Peel Regional Police took in $16
million and Ontario's Ministry of Community Safety and Correctional Services was compensated a whopping $100 million.
The final security bill appears to be about $676 million.
Other spending includes art that was rented and insured for $30,000, tablecloths for $12,131, and $32, 762 for "foot powder and Gatorade."
32 THOUSAND FOR GATORADE and FOOT POWDER?
COME on HOW STUPID DO THEY THINK WE ARE? OH wait they got away with it!
