Throne Speech Priorities, Assholes Steal Kids’ Christmas Money, and The Raptors Go Deep
Dalton McGuinty’s throne speech will focus on poverty and climate change. They were going to focus on Desperate Housewives, but the writer’s strike got in the way.
If you wanted to know more about the phony bomb scare last night at the ROM, Torontoist has the goods right here. Buy all our playsets and toys!
Opposition rebels against Tory climate change proposals. Harper says that the Commonwealth’s climate change plan would have meant a doubling of greenhouse gases in fifty years. Nobody actually seems to know how he arrived at this conclusion.
A bunch of Conrad Black’s friends write a letter to his judge saying he’s really an all-right guy. Excerpt: “He only kicked me in the face that one time, and really, I kind of deserved it. Give the dude a chance!”
Total asshole(s) steal $8,000 in change that was donated for a needy kids’ Christmas party. The person or persons who stole the money from the Hunter’s Horn Pub in Whitby are so fucking pathetic that they felt the need to steal a water container filled with pennies, dimes and nickels. What the hell. (The pub is going ahead and having the party anyway, paying for it out of their own pocket. Good on them.)
Toronto police break up two human smuggling rings. The smuggling rings were designed to get illegal immigrants into the United States, and thus the Americans are trying to get the suspects extradited to the US where they can serve an entirely proportional fifteen years in jail per charge of smuggling.
Finally, the Raptors showed some bench strength as they hammered the Grizzlies even without T.J. Ford and Chris Bosh.
