Signs of the Apocalypse

It seems that the mere presence of teenagers is enough to herald the downfall of a neighbourhood. The Star quoted a mid-Scarborough building superintendent commenting on the harbingers of doom: “We’ve seen a big change in this area. In the last six months, we’ve started to see young people hanging around in groups.” After two stabbings (one fatal) in three weeks, the Star now describes the area as a “new trouble spot” that’s “violence-racked.” No word on what the local hipster hordes think.
