Meredith has been at Occupy Toronto from it’s beginning with the exception of one week in which she was suffering from pneumonia.
According to Spinner Lightfoot told CTV News “I’m here at the invitation of my daughter to come and see the site. So I came down and here I am.” He adde “I can only hope that something of some sort can be accomplished from it. I don’t exactly know what that would be. I’m not really much into the political aspect of things. You know, I’m sort of like a normal person, you know.”
Lightfoot did express concern for younger generations saying “I don’t really know what anybody is going to do about it. The bottom line is that there are too many young people and not enough jobs to go around.”
Lightfoot is currently in the middle of a North American tour.
