June 4th, 2021. Downtown, London ON. I went out for my casual bike ride. Past Richmond Street, At St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica, something grabbed my attention. Take a closer look.

It’s a protest in support of indigenous communities. The topic?: the remains of 215 Indigenous children recently discovered at the Kamloops Indian Residential School. Good! Take photos.

What’s the situation at the sister institution across the street?: St. Paul’s Cathedral in London, Ontario. A comparison would be interesting.

I ride through St. Paul’s Cathedral gates.

The situation looks normal.

No protest.

That’s interesting.

Take a photo.

Good job!!!
