A suggestion: We should be taking a page from Ghandi.

A massive sit down around the whole fence. Bring your families, a picnic, music, your dogs!! A passive display of disagreement about this whole photo op through non-violent protest.

This would be a major embarrassment to Mr Harper and his gang. All that money spent to protect the leaders and zip, nada, nothing happens!

Quelle Domage eh!!

Diana that's an awesome idea, I can't believe I haven't come across it until now

You can find most of the police operated, public security cameras on this map.

Are there others that are not shown on the map? Add them to OpenStreetMap.org

Why has there been NO coverage of the People's Summit workshops?

@Diana its Gandhi, not Ghandi..
