    Norway and Sweden showed us much love and support for the event. As it's said, there's always room for more!

    Fantastic day with lots of good things happening; wonderful help from all of the volunteers, eye catching public displays, lots of interaction with people passing by, video footage shot for archives and great online participation through social media, just to name a few.

    You can read all about it over at the FB site. There's a report of the day's events, photos, a video clip with Dr. Bested and lots of interaction going on.

    Again, the site is:

    From @ScottTriGuy 's summary on the Facebook page:

    "Only one minor glitch - we had a great wifi connection for the Facebook Live stream but 2 minutes before 1pm the Starbuck's free wifi became locked, grrrr . . . "

    It appears from the photos that the Starbucks is located in the same office building as Health Canada's Regional (Ontario) office. Surely I'm not the only one who suspects Health Canada was behind the wifi being locked only two minutes before the protesters were hoping to use it. If so, shame on Starbucks, and double-shame on Health Canada.

    Regardless, good coverage of the event.

    Indeed @Old Bones the timing of Starbuck's wifi being locked is curious.

    Here's a video clip
