BLOG: Video of Royal Motorcade through downtown Toronto – Would more people care if Diana was still with Charles?

I shot this video from Front St. as the Royal Motorcade was coming up University Ave. entering the Toronto downtown core. The motorcade actually split in two from the airport, with Charles heading north up Bay St. to meet with business leaders and Camilla up University to a different function.

There seems to be a lot of apathy on the street towards the Royals visit to Canada. Lots of moans could be overheard as a systematic army of police managed to stop traffic so the motorcade could whiz through. “Is this all really necessary for just them?” could be heard from the crowd. “Who’s paying for all this?” could also heard a couple of times.
