...and admittedly, traffic... simply by pointing out the urban mayhem in Toronto.
As an ex-Hogtown native (I lived in Don Mills for the first 10 years of my life and worked there for all but a decade until I hit 40) I do know a few things about the way the city has evolved.
We made a conscious decision to leave Toronto when it came time to enroll my son in school. To be honest, every time I hear about stuff like this, I quietly congratulate myself on that decision.
The first incident occurred in the Jane St. and Woolner Ave. area around 8 p.m., where a 36-year-old man was shot at least twice in the back as he was getting into a taxi cab. The cab driver, who was reportedly shaken, let him out a few blocks away.Now, Dawg and Red Tory and Canadian Cynic will no doubt trot out their hoary old accusations of racism. It's what the left does when they can't argue on the facts.
In the east end, neighbours were shaken after a bullet pierced through the living room wall of a townhouse complex. Police responded to calls of several gunshots on Ladysbridge Ave., near Lawrence and Kingston Rd. after 9:15 p.m.
It's what BCL and Special K did recently with Kathy Shaidle.
The fact is though, all that self-righteous ranting and finger-pointing isn't going to change the fact that there will be hundreds of similar shooting incidents this year.
It's sad... but it is factual.
Just don't tell that to the lunatic left.
UPDATE: And right on time...
...Vancouver gets back on the board...
Two people are lying dead inside a second story apartment at 1412 East 41st Avenue after an apparent shooting early Tuesday morning, according to reports.**********

"Angry responses from the left in the comments help me to realize that I shouldn't be so flippant."*
"It's just that with access to 5 sections of mixed bush/farmland and a lifetime's supply of 30-30 shells, the words 'impending economic collapse' stir the same sort of emotional response around here as 'longer hunting season'."
