I was also downtown yesterday along the waterfront.
Rode the new carousel with no issues, kind of a cool vantage point from along the waterfront. ($15 per person)
Wondered through the tourist stores along the waterfront with friends, stopped and with one of the 1st nation wood carvers and bought a mini totem from him. Had him explain the features and story of his totem. I have seen this particular carver down their for years and have always stopped to say hello, he is very kind and it always reminds me of John T. Williams.
Not one word about the black Sig in a black leather holster....
