"On November 23 , Occupy Toronto was removed from its St. James Park encampment just as Ontario government ministers met with Ontario Economic Summit delegates at the Royal York Hotel". "I was warm and fed, at the Royal York with the 21st-century incarnation of the Family Compact, some 150 years after the struggles of Baldwin and Lafontaine with Bishop Strachan, who presided at St. James Cathedral in pre-Confederation Canada". "Canada was born out of the pre-Confederation conditions we now see again -- shifts in geopolitics, transitions in economic drivers, waves of immigration, socio-economic disparity and the call for social justice in tension with established governance.

Does history not teach us lessons ? Let us not repeat the mistakes".
