Living in Calgary for many years, the seething hatred towards Toronto (and to a lesser extent Vancouver and Montreal) was visibly on display by most all of the Reform crowd. Colorful language is often used to describe Vancouver, TO, or other large, non-Conservative cities... Harper and his ilk never hid their hatred for the "Big Smoke"... Perhaps childhood traumas for our PM???
Anyways, it appears today that their "gift" to Toronto is more like a big "F You Toronto". I mean, c'mon, they clearly KNEW what the summit would bring. They knew that holding it in Toronto would bring protest and more. They had mega-police protecting the fences, while the rioters laid waste to the rest of the fair city.
There's a lot more to the reason the summit was held in Toronto. First the disgusting waste of taxpayer funds... Now the realized Conservative dream of chaos and destruction wished on the good people of Toronto, our nation's largest, most diverse city. We often heard Conservative comments in Alberta and "off mike". Now we see what they really wanted for the "Big Smoke"... Real smoke, it appears.
Pathetic. Infantile. Reform-a-Tories...
