We are so lucky. So lucky that after the ridiculous and unjust actions of the police at the G20 and the upsetting interactions many of us go through all too often with them we still have each other. Toronto was kind to us… We will be putting up more videos once we have a stronger internet connection- we are on our way to Ottawa now. So much unfolded in Toronto that we’re going to split our visit into a few different blogs.
There are many people to thank for our successful visit… I know that I’ve at least done one thing right in my life since I’ve had the opportunity to meet such miraculous inspiring people.
Thank you D!onne for your kindness and fighting spirit! Check this amazing woman out at https://m.youtube.com/channel/UC9XNbVnMjlMgwaPgk3Z0zGw.
To everyone at the Silent Peaceful Protest to abolish carding who stopped to talk. You can learn more about carding at http://stoppolicecarding.com/. Carding is a nationwide issue and we need to make sure it’s abolished across Canada.
Thanks Jenn, Vic and Alex for the hospitality and cycling advice. We also loved the snail.
Thanks as always to the Toronto Sun’s Joe Warmington and Newstalk for covering our story. http://m.torontosun.com/2015/08/18/blairs-hands-full-with-political-royal-rumble
