Day 1 of Toronto protest strikes a different tone than Ottawa

Toronto Sun: "Day 1 of the trucker protest in Toronto wasn’t quite over but as the supper hour approached it was clearly a much different experience than what we’ve seen in Ottawa over the past week or more. Throughout the afternoon people gathered waving flags and signs, singing, chanting and even playing volleyball in the streets.

"The plan for the trucks to get close to Queen’s Park even if they weren’t at the legislative building itself was put to an end by Toronto Police early in the day. After watching more than a week of chaos in Ottawa, Toronto was much better prepared from a policing standpoint...

"...While farmers’ tractors were allowed to drive down Queen’s Park Circle on Friday, the truckers expecting to take the same path were blocked several hundred metres earlier at Bloor St. There they stayed all afternoon, blocking a major intersection in downtown Toronto, snarling traffic and honking horns.

"A few tense moments early in the afternoon as crowds grew and police refused to give way for the trucks soon dissipated as the event turned into a street party."
