Lined Up in Yorkville

After all the chaos in Toronto over the last 2 days because of the G20 meetings, I needed some order and tidiness. There is a tiny park in the Yorkville area of town (just up the road from some of yesterday's protests) and it has rows of these wonderful planters. Yorkville was the centre of Toronto's hippiedom in the 60s but was taken over by developers in the 70s and is now totally gentrified and very up-scale. Still an interesting area though.

This must be a welcome contrast. I remember when we had the G8 summit in Edinburgh. We didn't have such fancy perspex fences as you. Instead lots of blank plywood for the purpose of protest graffitti.
