Rosedale under siege

The NOW magazine this week features an article about "the poor [storming] the gates of Rosedale". The article refers to Rosedale as a "rich fortress" but without much defense, except if you count neatly trimmed hedges. And so it seems that an uprising by the poor against un-fortified enclaves is taking place in our very own city. Walls to follow? I hope not.
