Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- Three men were apprehended this morning for the most un-brie-levable crime: a cheese heist. The men stole a tractor trailer “loaded” with cheese near Hwy 7 and Vaughn Valley Blvd. around 1:40 a.m. this morning. They eventually crashed the truck and took off on foot; police approached one suspect in another car, and two attempting to hail a taxi. The truck contained 30,000 to 36,000 pounds cheese. The motives of the thieves, and their connection with the dairy market, is still unknown.
- Ace pitcher David Price has finally seen the fan initiative aimed at getting him to re-sign with the Blue Jays for the 2016-2017 season. The site, anypricefordavid.com, allows fans to add their own personal clauses to a hypothetical Price-Jays contract. “Love it” tweeted Price. Perhaps a sign that he loves the 6ix enough to stay?
- Torontonians are stepping up to combat the Islamophobia evident in the recent attacks that have spread across the GTA in the past few days. A “Refugee Welcome Party” is being organized for those who would like to welcome Toronto’s first group of Syrian refugees to at the Pearson International Airport this December. As well, a Toronto man’s social experiment against Islamophobia has been co-opted by a Paris activist. Last January, Mustafa Mawla stood in Yonge & Dundas Square with a sign that read, “I am a Muslim, I am labeled as a terrorist,” the other, “I trust you, Do you trust me? Give me a hug.” The experiment, caught on video, has been recreated in Paris, with moving results.
