After half the city was shut down, police cars were burned, and the downtown core was smashed to pieces, the G20 is finally over. Like everyone else, I was infuriated to see our beautiful city attacked like that. Here's hoping that the world leaders actually did something productive and it wasn't all a waste. In the meantime, kudos to the protesters who remained peaceful, and the police officers who did their best to protect our Toronto.
This is one of the cops guarding the gate near the shelter, holding Caramel. The officers on Exhibition Grounds were very friendly, and mostly very agreeable about allowing volunteers and even some adopters on to the Grounds to get to the shelter. Since we were worried at one point about even being allowed to walk the dogs, I am very thankful they ended up being so accomodating.
Thank goodness it's over - now it's back to our usual schedule.
