The Fencing Begins...

19 days before the summit, the first of the barrier is laid down on Windsor St. I've already seen some set up south of Rogers Centre, which must have been done earlier in the day. They seem to be moving at a pretty good pace...which is good, since the area they have to cover is quite large. One thing I've noticed in the past few days is that it seems they've stopped calling it an unscalable fence. Talk like that only makes one want to try it. Remember, they called the Titanic unsinkable, and we ALL know how that ended! And if you don't know how it ended, spoiler sank.

Here's a short list of things that have been shutdown, moved or cancelled because of the 'minor'interruption of the G20 Summit:

- University of Toronto
- Rock of Ages
- Mamma Mia!
- Daycares
- Rogers Centre
- CN Tower
- Bay Street (some)
- VIA Rail
- Various Small Businesses
- Queens Park, and associated Media Facilities
- Parking lots

If this is what is to be considered "minor" in the view of our Government, I would NOT like to see what a major disruption is.

So, as the first barriers are put in place, I thought it nice to commemorate it with a few photos.

The trucks arrive...

And start laying the base of the fence
