And replaced it with Saskatoon? (I spent the longest day of the year -- and my life -- in Saskatoon.)
It's downright eerie here. There's more traffic in the dead of night.
I just walked from College and Spadina to Dundas and Yonge and back. I've never seen my city like this.
Lunch-time. Gorgeous day.
Vacant restaurant patios. Closed up businesses. Empty streetcars. A few taxis roaming around.
There is a fuck of a lot of money not being made today. By regular people, I mean: waiters and taxi-drivers and hot-dog vendors and restaurant owners. You know, the people who need every dime to get by.
And what an impression to make on such visitors as do manage to escape from the Red Zone. It looks like an unaccountably huge hick town out there.
This bloody shindig can't be over soon enough.
