Sunday, June 27th, 2010: Day 2 of the G-20 Summit Weekend

Here are photos from the 2nd day of the G-20 Summit weekend. After the very eventful Saturday, more people had turned up for amusement than anything related to “protesting”.

Saturday, June 26th, 2010: Day 1 of the G-20 Summit Weekend

The first day of the G-20 Summit weekend in Toronto was also my friend’s wedding and reception day at Toronto’s CNE! Due to many road closures, I wasn’t sure how bad the traffic conditions would be. But as it turned out, most people had stayed at home and the roads were eerily deserted.

‘Twas the day before the G-20 Summit weekend in Toronto.

The streets in the Financial District, normally busy with pedestrian and vehicular traffic, especially during the lunch hour, were eerily deserted.

With more than three-quarters of Bank employees telecommuting or working from other office locations, Toronto’s Financial District had turned into a Ghost Town!

Fortunately, I was working in my Bay Street office and was able to take these pictures during lunch time. There were only a handful of people in our 50+ story building!
