I leave the country on vacation and everything goes to hell, it seems.

First, Ottawa gets hit by an earthquake. I'm glad nobody was injured!

Then, the Provincial "government" very quietly designates downtown Toronto as a "public work" so that they can apply the Public Works Protection Act for a little while. The Black Block accomplished sundry vandalism with impunity, then police rounded up and arrested harmless protesters (too many links to mention; just search YouTube for dozens of videos on "police g20 toronto"), injuring an elderly amputee in the process. All that to conclude that governments should cut their deficits by half... it looks like the cuts won't be coming out of the police budgets, though!
