I think Tim had the best idea for deterring demonstrators: hold the meetings on a cruise ship at sea.

We need look no further.

The cost of hosting the G8 and G20 summits next month in Ontario now stands at $1.1 billion and further outlays are likely, federal documents show.

The price tag includes $160 million for hospitality, infrastructure, food safety and extra staffing. That amount is in addition to the $933-million security bill the Tories revealed earlier this week.



My other suggestion if these fellows weren't able to provide a ship for the world leaders

was to hold the meeting in Resolute NWT. Of course the leaders would take up all of the sparse hotel space (at six to a room) so the reporters would have to build igloos to sleep in. There might also be a problem with the cameras at -70F?
