Meanwhile, the hundreds of people pouring out of Confederation Building is causing some major congestion on the parking lot.
It’s caused frustration for many trying to leave.
“Jesus, it’s going to take me two hours to get out of here!” one woman was heard yelling to a security guard who was directing traffic on the west end of the lot."
