I sat at home and watched TV while college students rioted and set a TV news van on fire (luckily no where near my place)
Okay, now I know where in Ontario you live. About an hour and a half from me. I was absolutely floored when I read about it. (I don't watch TV, I don't get a paper on Sundays, and I don't tend to follow online news on the weekend, so I didn't hear about it until Monday.) Is it my imagination, or are riots like this happening more often now than they used to do?
On Saturday evening, I stayed home. I wasn't going anywhere near places where there would be crowds! Besides, though my grandfather was Irish, I've never particularly identified with the culture. I'm just an average Canadian. That's cultural enough for me!
