Election campaign begins, condo caper & slow service…look out!

 

Toronto/GTA

  • A man is fighting for his life in hospital after he was stabbed at mall in North York.  Police were called to Empress Walk, near Yonge Street and Sheppard Avenue East, around 7 p.m. on Tuesday for reports of a stabbing.  Mall security followed one possible suspect through the plaza until police arrived and took the man into custody.

  • Toronto Police say two people, a man and a woman, have been arrested after a couple told CityNews over $5000 worth of their belongings were stolen from a condo loading dock as they were moving in late last month.  The boxes contained electronics, jewellery and gifts from a recent baby shower.  Security images captured a man and woman loading the boxes into a van before taking off.  Police have since arrested 48-year-old Attila Bozik and 42-year-old Anna Horvath of Toronto.  They’re both facing charges of theft over $5000 and possession of property obtained by crime.

Ontario/Canada

  • And so it begins!   The election campaign officially kicks off today.  Liberal Leader Kathleen Wynne starts her day with a couple of events in Toronto before attending an evening rally in Ottawa.  Progressive Conservative Leader Doug Ford makes an announcement this morning in Toronto, then heads to Carp, Ont., for an afternoon meet-and-greet followed by an evening rally in Renfrew, Ont.  NDP Leader Andrea Horwath spends the first day of the campaign in Toronto, with a morning appearance focused on health care followed by an afternoon campaign event.

  • A court ruling was finalized Monday when a Los Angeles judge said coffee sold in California must carry cancer warnings.  A Superior Court Judge said Starbucks Corp. and other roasters and retailers failed to show that benefits from drinking coffee, outweighed any risks from a carcinogen that is a byproduct of the roasting process.  The coffee industry did not deny that the chemical acrylamide was found in coffee. But they argued it was at harmless levels and their product should be exempt from the law because the chemical results naturally from cooking necessary for flavour.

 

Say What?!

  • An elderly man was arrested Monday after he opened fire at another McDonald’s customer in front of him at the drive-thru.  Indiana Police say 91-year-old Johnnie Douglas started yelling at 39-year-old Phillip Bailey outside the fast food joint around 4am.  Richmond Police Department Captain Kevin Wampler said the senior became upset that the service was too slow and vehicles in front of him were not moving forward.  The 91-year-old fired a shot toward him, and the other man threw a milkshake in his face. Both were arrested and are facing various charges.  No one was seriously hurt.
