Come Out to Caribana ’67
The story of Toronto's first-ever Caribana Festival.
Happy first of August! In today's news: The police officer under investigation for shooting Sammy Yatim on an empty streetcar apparently called for another officer to use a taser before opening fire on the teen, a longtime veteran of the Toronto police force says officers are trained to "shoot until the threat has stopped," and Mayor Rob Ford gets into it with the Ontario Liberals.
Pay your rent! And in the news: The Toronto police officer who is under investigation for his involvement in the shooting death of Sammy Yatim has been identified, a new poll finds six out of 10 Torontonians support the Scarborough subway over an LRT, but also that people may not understand the options, one of the alleged gang members who was featured in a photo with Mayor Rob Ford is out on bail, and buying coffee for hundreds of strangers has, blessedly, hit Toronto.
