Budget police vans spotted around Yonge & St. Clair. Heading north? South? Anyone have details?

Seems like everything is back to “normal”. However, according to Brent Patterson “many are still unjustly being detained and need to be released, and the city has yet to shed the police-state feeling that has smothered it these past few days.” (See “The aftermath of the summits”.)

I will be reading news on Google Reader. Noteworthy items will be found on my “shared items” page.
