So the bullets were flying...

...at Dundas and University over the weekend... and then there was...

-- TORONTO -- Paramedics rushed the victim, about 18 years old, to Sunnybrook hospital after he was found bleeding by a school on Driftwood Ct. at 4:20 p.m., police said. Toronto medics treated the teen at the scene before taking him to hospital.

Police said there appeared to be evidence that at least two people shot at each other. The victim was found beside a schoolyard basketball court, but investigators suspect the shooting may have occurred in a nearby field.

I wish Giorgio Mammoliti would hurry up and take all the basketball nets down in his ward so this kind of violence doesn't happen anymore.

No Basketball Nets. No Funeral.

"paula says... No Basketball Nets. No Funeral."

no fear, paula... the solution apparently, is to flood the school system... with social workers...

"Creation of a special youth commissioner, an enhanced role for schools and a $100-million allocation of (taxpayer) funds will head the recommendations of a long-awaited provincial report on youth violence to be released today."

"mission accomplished."
