Toronto’s viral Chair Girl has pleaded guilty to mischief causing danger to life on Friday, after throwing a chair off a 45th-floor condo balcony near the Gardiner Expressway earlier this year.
Marcella Zoia, the 19-year-old who threw a chair off a sky-high condo building in February while being videoed has officially pleaded guilty on Friday in a Toronto courtroom.
While she has pleaded guilty to mischief causing danger to life, that does not cover all of her original charges.
When arrested, she was charged with mischief endangering life, mischief endangering property under $5,000 and common nuisance. According to the Toronto Sun, those remaining charges are expected to be dropped by the Crown Prosecutors.
A sentencing hearing has been scheduled for Jan. 14, although the crown has called for six months in jail.
While sentencing awaits, according to CTV, Zoia’s lawyer has confirmed that his client has been expelled from the dental hygiene program she was previously in and is currently modelling.
Zoia’s account has significantly grown since the chair girl incident, according to the Toronto Star, her Instagram account grew from 6,000 to more than 32,000 today.
“There was a job opportunity that she had and a decision was made not to proceed with that,” he said outside of the courthouse. “Right now she does modelling when the opportunity presents itself.”
“She was doing modelling before this and she has had contracts since this. If you are asking me if those contracts were a result of this case, I honestly have no idea.”
A triple A hockey player from Burlington, Ontario has posted a video on twitter that went viral after he criticized Jessica Allen for enforcing untrue stereotypes about the game of hockey.
In the video, the hockey player said that he was “truly outraged … the stereotypes that you claimed about us hockey players are not true at all.” He went on to say that his “first idol was a hockey player called Becky Kellar … and she also that all players are white male, which hurt me.”
These comments came after Jessica Allen’s controversial response to Don Cherry’s firing. In a CTV show, Allen stated that she doesn’t “worship at the altar of hockey,” and that the hockey players she knew “all tended to be white boys who weren’t, let’s say, very nice.”
The hockey player went on to say, “we’re more than just a stereotype and you should see us for the people we really are.”
After he posted this video on twitter, the young hockey player received many positive responses, including some from NHL players.
Speaking to The Post Millennial, the hockey player said that he “posted the response because I don’t think it is fair to put that kind of stereotype on all hockey players or on any group of people for that matter. People may look at me and say I am a spoiled white kid but I had to work hard to save money for my first goalie pads.”
He went on to say that “my parents are immigrants and we didn’t have much starting out. But what I do have is a voice and I want to use that voice to stand up for people who need me.”
On Jessica Allen’s apology, he stated that he was “not sure how I feel about it. I was always taught that if I said something or did something that hurt somebody else I should … sincerely apologize to that person. I feel like her apology is more like, I am sorry but… I wish it was that easy.”
He ended by saying, “When you have such a big audience like she does on TV I think it is important to think about what you say.”
Former Thunder Bay City Councillor will be headed back to court on a charge of attempted murder.
The charge stems from a “serious incident” that took place on Vickers Street in Thunder Bay.
Larry Hebert, 72, was remanded into custody Friday morning during a bail court appearance, and is scheduled to appear in court on December 16, according to CBC.
Details surrounding the incident are currently under a publication ban.
Hebert served as a city councilor for Thunder bay for three consecutive terms, having been defeated in the councillor-at-large race last year.
Thomas Christian Zaugg, 33, has been arrested in relation to the vandalism of a historic cenotaph honouring Canada’s fallen soldiers on Bay Street in Toronto, according to the Toronto Police Service.
The cenotaph had been defaced with blue spray-painted words reading “Ye Broke Faith.”
A Toronto-area man going by the same name on Facebook posted a Nov. 13 statement to Mayor John Tory, claiming responsibility for the vandalism. A subsequent video was recorded where Zaugg read the statement, and included additional commentary.
“National monuments are public commons, and places that are fair targets in the cultural war.” Zaugg says in a Nov. 13 video posted to his Facebook, continuing “Graffiti is easily removed. It does not disrespect a war memorial to momentarily affix a line from a poem…”
The line is apparently taken from John McCrae’s poem “In Flander’s Fields.”
The video, which has been viewed two thousand times, is still available on his Facebook, among posts stating “if you support the censorship of Don Cherry, you are an enemy of my country,” and lauding a Nickelback song for being “the only Canadian art produced in the last 15 years that is critical of the government.”
Other posts include criticising the media for “sitting on” his story, an apparent reference to the lack of coverage over his statement taking responsibility for vandalizing the cenotaph, as well as his other various political manifestos, posted on his social media. Christie Blatchford, Joe Warmington, and The Post Millennial were among those Zaugg attacked.
The Post Millennial did not receive anything from Zaugg, despite claiming he had sent his admission to our news outlet. However, The Post Millennial was looking into his claims before the police confirmed they had arrested him for the desecration of the monument.
Zaugg, in another video posted March 18 to his Facebook, adorns military-style camo, and discusses the formation of a paramilitary auxiliary he calls the Canadian Civilian Defense Force. The force, according to Zaugg, is being created in anticipation of mass food scarcity, which he states will occur “within three years.”
The Post Millennial reached out to both the Toronto Police Service and Thomas Zaugg for comment, but neither responded before publishing.
UPDATE: While the Tweet embedded in this piece from Asif Hossain refers to Zaugg as a “regular right-wing nutter,” a cursory exploration of his past reveals he was a prominent leader in the Occupy Toronto movementseveral years ago. During this time, Zaugg lived in a Yurt in St. James Park decorated artistically with feminist slogans and the painted faces of racialized women. Multiple outlets, including the Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, and Torontoist, profiled Zaugg and sought his comment on Occupy-related stories.
