Yeah, the whole night was ugly. We watched the live stream, crowded around computer terminals. Not the least of the ugliness was the patient we had to send 400 km away for specialized emergency treatment because, as I predicted, the Big Downtown Hospitals were in lockdown and weren’t accepting patient transfers.
As for what we witnessed last night: rubber bullets, tear gas, and pepper spray, nearly five hundred people arrested; mass vandalism and police brutality suppressing lawful dissent. A billion dollars gone, and what did we get for it? Smashed shops on Yonge Street and police state tactics.
A great day for Toronto and this country.
I am so angry I could spit.
