Dog-walkers and joggers were given similar warnings on Thursday. The iconic west-end park, famous at this time of year for the blooming of cherry blossoms, has taken on a Cold War East Berlin look to it. If Toronto was a police state, this is what it would look like. It reminds of pre-1989 Brandenburg Gate, or Checkpoint Charlie. Fence, fence everywhere a fence. And barricade after barricade. About a dozen Toronto Police officers are on guard at four entrances surrounding the park. If you make it through all of that, then comes the city of Toronto’s bylaw enforcement officers and their $1,000 social-distancing fine ticket books.
