No pressure

Greetings from Toronto, where the only thing raining on the summit parade is, in fact, rain.

The Prime Minister is due to speak to a news conference round noon to wrap the G8 proceedings in Huntsville. About the same time, protesters should be massing in downtown Toronto for an afternoon protest that is being touted as potential trouble—and may only add to concerns about a “secret” law that would seem to grant police special powers near the summit site. Mr. Harper will then turn his attention to the G20, where he is apparently expected to lead the world’s economic superpowers to unanimity on the most contentious issues of 21st century fiscal management.

So yeah. The next 48 hours promise to be at least interesting.
