Two Teens Stabbed Near Bathurst And Harbord

Toronto Police are looking for two suspects after a pair of stabbings that happened just after one o’clock, near Clinton and Harbord.

Two teen boys were taken to hospital with serious injuries that paramedics say are potentially life-threatening.

The suspects are described as a black man, wearing a brown Roots tracksuit and a brown man, wearing a black jacket and blue jeans.

Rapidly Growing Petition Says “NO To ‘Islamophobia’ Day, YES To ‘Anti-Hate Day’”

A petition created by Torontonian Vivienne Ziner is calling on the Toronto City Council to change their planned “Islamophobia Day” to an “Anti-Hate Day.”

Many people are concerned by the divisive nature of singling out the idea of “Islamophobia,” which is often used by political elites to demonize and silence legitimate criticism of Islam.

Toronto’s new ward boundaries challenged in court

The fate of how Toronto’s 2018 election will be run rests in the hands of Superior Court Justice Katherine Swinton.

On Friday, in a sunlit courtroom on the second floor of Osgoode Hall just steps away from city hall, the judge heard arguments about whether the court should consider an appeal of the city’s new ward boundary structure.

In what may be an unprecedented move, the case contesting a city council decision, which was confirmed by a provincial tribunal, was brought by a sitting city councillor and a local resident.

Rule #1 of Douche Club: The pork barrel always gets bigger! Toronto needs fewer not more councilors.

The Lastmans Offer to Fund Streetsville Santa Parade

God bless us, everyone:

Who is going to miss out on attending the famous Streetsville Santa Claus parade?

If Mel and Blayne Lastman have any say: “N-o-o-o-o-o-body.”

The former Toronto mayor and his legendary Bad Boy retailer son have stepped up to try to save the cancelled parade.

“I think of the kids,” said Mel. “The kids have to have a Santa Claus parade at Christmas.”

A lot of people were surprised when word snuck out over the weekend that the parade planned for later this month on the famous old town’s main street in Mississauga was being scrapped in favour of an expanded Christmas market concept.

The market idea does sound terrific, but the tradition of the Streetsville Santa Claus parade, held every year since 1974, would sadly end. Blayne Lastman is hoping it doesn’t have to.

Toronto: Muslim worker dies when hijab gets stuck in conveyor belt

If they didn’t allow the hijabi to work on the line they would have been sued and wrongly called Islamophobic. Now, rather than banning the hijab and other head coverings near this type of machinery, the government will further burden employers and fine them.

Quebec protects its Muslim citizens against this danger.
