Deputy director of wildlife Cole Winegarden said Li Zhu Liu violated the basic tenets of responsible hunting by shooting game out of season, failing to correctly identify species and abandoning wildlife that were shot.

"Liu has not been deterred by his arrests, seizures, civil forfeiture of personal items or the charges he faces."

The documents detail a litany of hunting offences from 2013 to 2016, including the month-long period in 2014 during which Liu and his companions killed the white-tailed deer and the black bear.
PETA and the RCMP Firearms Czar were apparently unavailable for comment.

How did boring, white-bread Scarberia become Scarlem — a mess of street gangs, firebombings and stabbings? It is the youngest suburb, rapidly growing, and the city’s—as well as one of the country’s—most forceful exercise in multiculturalism (54 per cent of its residents are foreign-born, compared to the Canadian average of 19 per cent).

The spectre of ethnic gangs, of sectarian tension, floats through it. Among the dozens of tribes in Scarborough are gangs that accommodate Afghans, Tamils, Chinese and West Indians.

In the ephemeral world of Scar­borough gangs, there is violence within ethnic groups and between ethnic groups. There is a lot of violence between gangs, most of it unreported home invasions where guns or drugs are stolen (or re-stolen).
