Seriously the whole of Toronto got punked during the G20 conference. It'd be funny if it wasnt also sad lol.
Prior to the event it was made known that the Premier and the Ontario government had passed in secret a law allowing police to search and arrest anyone within 5 metres of the G20 fence over the weekend.
Well now it has come to light that there was no such law. They all lied to us! The Premier, the police chief, they all lied.
While we were busy saying shame on the Ontario government for secretly passing such a law in secret and the police were actually enforcing this supposed law and stopping folks at random within 5 metres of the fence and just in general on the streets of downtown Toronto over the weekend for searches, this law never existed.
Whoa! How ya like dem apples?
So now everyone is upset cause we got lied to and in essence punked (without Ashton Kushner). What can ya say?
All I know is I can understand why folks are upset. Public officials of the stature of your police chief and premier aren't supposed to willfully lie to you like that. I mean politicians lie like crazy so we sort of expect that but the Police chief too. Damn! I'm sure they have their reasons but if they were telling lies about that then you get the sneaking suspicion that they are telling lies about other stuff too. Can we ever trust them again? That supposed trust between public and public officials is evaporating so what next? Does this mean the anarchists are winning? God forbid!
Well boy these days is funny nights.
