(December 17, 2009) The Olympic Torch relay travels south on Yonge st. just north of Finch Ave. in Toronto. Hundreds of people braved cold temperatures and lined the street for a look at the Olympic Flame. During the same day, news photographers from the Toronto Sun and Canadian Press complained of being manhandled by over-zealous torch security.
