1. Gordon Lightfoot visits Occupy Toronto
Edited on Wed Nov-16-11 06:39 PM by CHIMO
Canadian music icon Gordon Lightfoot made a brief appearance at the Occupy Toronto camp Tuesday in support of his 17-year-old daughter, Meredith.

In an impromptu press scrum, Lightfoot stressed he was only there at the invitation of his daughter, who began her stay at St. James Park on Oct. 15.

Lightfoot expressed concern for the lack of opportunities and employment for young people.

When asked by a CBC videojournalist which of his songs best captured the spirit of the occupation, he said his 1993 ballad Restless seemed to sum up the mood of the protesters and camp residents.
