Young gangsters from the suburbs! Skanked-out girls in miniskirts! Drunk and angry frat guys! Beware! Toronto has assigned 18 officers to a “rapid deployment team” that will protect the entertainment district from violent crime as part of the Toronto Anti-Violence Intervention Strategy (TAVIS). TAVIS received $5 million this morning to increase officer presence in the area and prevent gun violence.

It’s Saturday night in Dodger Stadium: the Dodgers are playing the Blue Jays, and about 100 Canadians from a social group called Canadians Abroad show up to support their countrymen. One brings a Canadian flag to wave in the stands and security sends down 3 or 4 LAPD to stop him. A small riot ensues. Mr. Raditch from Degrassi High was one of the expatriates present and comments, “It was totally insane. I could not believe what I was seeing. Over a flag!” However, the Dodgers’ stadium operations manager Lon Rosenberg argues that flags of any kind are banned in the facility.
