Spotted: Shark on the Prowl at City Hall

SPOTTED BY: City councillors Mike Layton (left) and Shelley Carroll (right)

WHERE: City Hall council chamber

WHEN: 2:20 p.m.

WHAT: Glenn de Baeremaeker (Ward 38, Scarborough Centre) is known for his creative approach to debating at City Hall. There was that one time he showed up with the toilet, for instance. And that other time, with the showering. These are nice breaks in what are often tedious days, and today, perhaps topping all previous showings, de Baeremaeker did not disappoint. As council was about to start debating a proposed ban on shark fins in Toronto: behold the radio shark, high above! (Debate is ongoing, though this particular shark has since been dispensed with.)

UPDATE: October 25, 5:15 p.m. 680 News reports that council voted in favour of the ban.
