Mayor's office, yet again...

...curiously silent on which gun club they belonged to...

A shooting incident outside a hotel in Toronto's posh Yorkville district has left one man dead and sent another to hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Toronto police Staff Sgt. David Vickers told ctvtoronto.ca that the incident happened at about 4:30 a.m. Saturday, in a laneway behind the Howard Johnson Hotel Yorkville, north of Bloor Street West on Avenue Road.

Toronto is ...

... a cesspool full of criminals imported from other countries and their violent cultures (adapted from Gwyn Morgan's spot-on observations).

sorry werner... as disappointed as you may be to hear it... there are plenty of homegrown criminals in the mix.

and, my guess is, gwyn morgan would be less than pleased to have you constantly speaking for him.

maybe you can stick to speaking for werner from now on?

Sounds to me like it could have been a semi-retired farmer from Weyburn Sask.

You know...one of those folk that evaded the long gun registry through illiteracy.

"syncro says... a semi-retired farmer from Weyburn"

yup... could be anybody i guess.

funny though, how the media just pussyfoot around specifics... thereby increasing all the speculation about whether or not it has something to do with caribana.

f@ck political correctness... just report it... it is what it is.

It is what it is....A simple concept yet so difficult for the social engineers to understand.

and hey, in hogtown, the fun just never stops...

A gunman opened fire on a group of men in north Etobicoke, but none of the would-be victims were injured.

Toronto Police said two men drove up to the scene in the Jamestown Cres. and John Garland Blvd. area around 7:40 p.m. Friday.

One of the men got out of the car and fired at the group before jumping back into the vehicle and driving off westbound on John Garland.
