The G20 Summit was in Toronto last weekend. The summit had the usual assortment of characteristics - protests, high price tags,, politicos, etc. But in an interesting twist, we had a track handicapper bring us a headline.
On Sunday, as part of the G20, Mike Hamilton of WEG was arrested.
Let's have a pop quiz. Mike was arrested for:
a) Protesting the 28% Woodbine Tri takeout
b) Holding a sign that said "Free Walter Case"
c) Walking around his neighbourhood
If you chose c) you are pretty much correct.
