    I was sitting in the East Block courtyard in the parliament buildings, was pretty worried that those old windows would bust open, they were shaking pretty hard. Was pretty wild.

    CBC have mobilized most of their remaining news-gathering resources to Toronto in order the capture the reaction of the locals to Jurke's Draft Day genius.

    Thank you, CBC.

    Was sitting in a Timmies on Bank and it was pretty ridiculous. A lady's wheelchair toppled and a few coffee pots fell over.

    Funnies thing was that everyone in there, except one guy, just sat there drinking their coffee calmly like nothing happened. The one guy freaks out and runs for a doorway/out of the building, haha.

    Was at Saaq (auto insurance) in Hull, and when it happened I didn't even move, and that woman was screaming madly then I realized maybe I should go out

    One window in our office building cracked. It was comical to see one guy bolt for the doorframe, even though we are on the second floor of a six-story concrete building. Door frames don't help then.
