Look up. Wa-a-a-a-a-a-ay up.

Something we coyotes notice about many Ottawa residents is that they don't seem to look up much. We do, because we're just like that. It's survival instinct. Ya never know when one of them crows is gonna swoop in and try to swipe your bag lunch.

Anyway, this being the nation's capital, when we're swivelling our heads around, we often see stuff that you rarely see in other places, apparently unnoticed by everyone around us.

Things like a whole team of guys in black helmets and jumpsuits, from who knows what tactical team and who knows what paramilitary/military outfit, casually rappelling down the side of the Westin Hotel on a sunny November afternoon. Taking lotsa pictures of themselves doing it, presumably for their Top Sekrit Taktical Skrapbooks...






...so I took some for my Top Sekrit Taktical Skrapbook too. We coyotes are just like that.

This explains why a bunch of guys in black burglar suits with guns burst into Cedric's penthouse suite the other night!

Yes, things got a bit rowdy but, hey, it was his year to host Gnomefest.

so I got curious and asked my friend who works at the westin about this.. apparently this is a regular RCMP training exercise these guys do every 2 weeks or so. I was kinda disappointed. But at least we know our rcmp officers can scale buildings.. if they needed to.. :P

Well that's good to know. Except that Greenpeace seems to be better at climbing stuff than they are....
