Watching the Ukraine burn, live

It's a sign of our ultra-connected times that anyone with a computer, tablet or smartphone and enough available bandwidth can click on a link and watch the riots in Kyiv, live and unedited.

Here's a link to CTV News coverage of the event.

As I watch the surreal scenes play out on my screen, I'm reminded that what we have here in Canada - relative peace, relative freedom, relative trust in government - is still a distant dream in many parts of the world. Sadly, it looks like nothing is going to change anytime soon.

Sadly there is no delete or edit button in watching such a tragedy.
