#OccupyBayStreet Takes Over Adelaide and St. James Park

Ironically the OccupyBayStreet, OccupyToronto, movement has setup in front of my office.

Wild combination of messages, goals and protesters all coming together to
march, chant and fill up St. James Park with plans, I've read, to camp out "until Winter".

Before the chanting started we could hear the helicopters as I dropped by to leave my stuff in the office before going out with Gerry to check out the protest and find out more.  But as Gerry arrived to pick me up, the chanting started on the street from the CUPE and Air Canada union guys.

It seems everyone with a voice and a placard is getting involved and being captured by everyone with a camera, video camera or a cell phone.  For now it's calm, peaceful and earnest.
