The last time I went for a long walk in a big city and worried about being arrested was Hong Hong in the early 2000’s as China began dismantling the “one country, two systems” policies which once protected Hong Hong citizens from Chinese autocrats.

The only time before that was in Moscow in the middle 1970’s when Russia was under the dictatorship of the communist party and free movement wasn’t allowed. The communist media in Russia then, much like the Canadian media today, also felt it important to remind us that the restrictions on movement, liberty and association were for our safety, not theirs.

But I’m still gonna go for a walk past Dundas Square and Queens Park today around noon and take pictures of what I find. Wish me luck.
