‘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!
