"It's a beautiful day..."

"...in the neighbourhood, a beautiful day for a neighbour, would you be mine... could you be mine?"
A man wanted in a spate of increasingly violent bank robberies was arrested yesterday in a dramatic takedown outside a west-end Bank of Montreal just moments after an armed hold-up.

Charged with 27 robbery-related charges is Lui Gino Maccarone, of no fixed address.
And right downtown...
A 26-year-old man was swarmed by 20 attackers who beat and stabbed him in the club district yesterday morning, Toronto Police say.

The victim was "repeatedly punched, kicked and stabbed" outside the Fluid nightclub around 2:30 a.m. as clubgoers spilled into the streets, police said.
And how about another murder just to ice the homicidal cake?
A father of two is dead after an early morning shooting yesterday. Winston Watson, a 47-year-old general labourer, was killed after shots were fired around 3 a.m. Saturday.

Police marked off the scene near Finch Ave. and Hwy. 427 yesterday with pylons outlining the area by a fence where bullet casings were found.
And that's not even counting the six-pack of shootees from Lawrence Park.

That's it... I'm moving to Regina.
