In Dalton McGuinty's socialist paradise...

...there's no such thing as a bad boy...
With 62 convictions already on his rap sheet, many of them drug-related, this 32-year-old man recently appeared in bail court at Old City Hall and was released on a $1,000 surety -- no deposit, and therefore no financial pain -- and given the liberty of house arrest after being charged, yet again, for trafficking in crack cocaine.

And he was given this break by a JP despite also being on bail on other charges, as well as being on probation for one of those previous 62 convictions.
About $70,000 worth of marijuana and cocaine was allegedly found in the rented Yorkville house Mr. Kenk shared with classical pianist Jeanie Chung, who also faced drug charges. Those charges were dropped as part of today's plea bargain.

A 27-year-old man is expected to survive after being shot in the head early Tuesday morning in Toronto's Junction neighbourhood.

The man was shot while on Edwin Avenue at Dupont Street, just east of Dundas Street West, at around 12:30 a.m. Police say the bullet hit the man in the forehead but inflicted non life-threatening injuries. He spent the night in hospital having surgery.
