Tamils Go Back to University

Like you didn’t know this was coming: after a lengthy protest that shut down University Avenue for several days at the end of last month, and Sunday night’s Gardiner takeover, Tamil protesters have once again forced the closure of University Avenue southbound from Dundas Street West to Queen Street West. According to Toronto Police, the stretch of street “will remain closed until further notice.” It’s almost as though some Tamils are passionate about not having their friends and relatives destroyed in a brutal civil war or something, to the point where they would deem it acceptable to add a few minutes to some drivers’ commutes. Animals, the lot of them!
