Extra, Extra: Toronto Cheese Thieves Caught in the Act, David Price Approves Anypricefordavid.com, Torontonians Fight Against Islamophobia

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.
