Couple engaged at G20 protest


Nothing says "romance" like a line of riot cops and a grungy detention centre.

But it was enough for Tommy Taylor and his now-fiancĂŠ Kathleen Bullock, who became engaged at a protest at Queen's Park yesterday.

The couple was arrested on the Esplanade during a G20 protest last week. Bullock as held for about 16 hours, while Taylor spent almost a full day in the Eastern Avenue Detention Centre. He said the time at the holding centre made him reflect on his priorities.

"I am not a wealthy man by any means," Taylor said yesterday in front of the crowd, which called for an independent inquiry into police G20 action. "All I can promise you is one hell of an adventure."

"Kate, I don't have a ring because I was in jail...but will you marry me?"

*Sigh* It's just like a movie, isn't it?

No word on whether Police Chief Bill Blair will make the guest list.
