Yep. Driving in downtown Toronto will become even less of a good idea than before.

I don't see why this can't be achieved with teleconferencing, as you suggest, or failing that, on an island somewhere.

Jim not to worry about traffic nooo-body will be there but protesters and the people they are protesting against. I drive for Go and normally in the mornings the buses can be 20 mins late getting into Union Station some are now getting in 10-20 mins early. Maybe this might a wake up call for all the paper pushers that they don't all have to congregate downtown to do what ever they do and they can work from home or satellites north of the city and save gas and pollute less

Part of the reason for the so called world leaders to get together is so that they can have confidential, off-the-record, conversations. It's difficult to be completely candid with somebody when you're staring into a camera. So I certainly understand why they'd want to have these meetings face-to-face. It's really too bad there isn't some sort of permanent location, with all the necessary security already established where these meetings could regularly take place. Oh, that's right, there is such a place. It's called the United Nations.
