PDP #239: Between the Fences

Yesterday, work was completed on the network of fencing that will, on Friday if not sooner, lock down a chunk of Toronto's downtown core for the G20 summit this weekend. It's a very sobering thing, seeing fences go up on your city streets. With them comes endless security theatre and speculation on what's going to happen next - it's like that part of the city will be waiting to exhale until the walls come down again.

Here, on Front Street, there's two adjacent layers of fencing - or at least there were last Friday, when this was taken.

  1. My husband works downtown and has been taking lots of pictures. Crazy!

  2. There's also snipers on the roofs of the high rises. Just don't look too suspicious when walking down there.
