Five injured, one in critical condition after shooting at North York nightclub
Five people are reportedly wounded after gunfire broke out inside of a North York night club.
Toronto police are now asking for any eyewitnesses to come forward, as one male victim remains in life-threatening condition, while the four others are in non-life-threatening condition.
This weekend, winter is back with a vengeance. A weather advisory has been put in place for Toronto and basically all of Southern Ontario.
The icy effects are already being felt. Many have taken to Twitter to document their own frozen nightmares.
The Weather Network reports that thousands are already without power in the Kitchener area, and as the icestorm continues, it could get worse for many: “Strong winds through the late morning and afternoon will pose a risk to power lines for parts of the southwest that saw ice accumulation through the morning.”
CBC’s Natasha Fatah tweets, “Toronto friends, a weather advisory in place as Sunday is going to bring a lot of messy, wintry, rainy, freezy weather.
Check on your neighbours, the elderly, those with mobility issues, the homeless, be good to each other and stay warm.”
Good advice, indeed. The mixture of snow, rain and ice is expected to continue through until Monday morning in most of Southern Ontario.
Stay safe and warm, Ontario!
A plane crash resulted in seven people, including three children, dying in a wooded area near Kingston, Ontario, according to CTV News.
The crash took place late Wednesday evening when an American-registered Piper PA-32 crashed before it could reach its destination of Kingston.
Although the final destination was Quebec City, the pilot decided to land in Kingston after he discovered a communication error.
Soon after, the plane crashed, hitting the ground at a very steep incline. This is presumed to have occurred at around 5:00 p.m. Unfortunately, everyone on board the aircraft died.
There is currently an on-going investigation into the plane crash, which usually requires the Transportation Safety Board of Canada to interview witnesses and read through maintenance footage. When this is done, the police will have a greater understanding of what caused the crash.
A 36-year-old inmate, who police say is violent, has vanished in downtown Toronto. They have named the man as Gashawbeza Kefene, who has escaped once before this occasion.
The police are warning Torontonians to not approach the man. He has been described as 5’9, 170 pounds, with black short hair, and a black beard.
Kefenee was last seen on Nov. 20 in the Queen Street West and Ossington Avenue area. His previous escape occurred in August earlier this year. He escaped from the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH).
Kefenee is the latest escapee, with other dangerous individuals escaping earlier this year.
Feces was thrown at Old City Hall in Toronto Wednesday, as the hearing of the man who allegedly dumped buckets of fecal matter onto unsuspecting Torontonians began.
A photo of the feces can be seen in a tweet by Toronto Sun reporter Joe Warmington.
Toronto Police arrested the man responsible for the three separate attacks, all of them involving feces on young Torontonians.
In each case, the man allegedly poured liquefied fecal matter from a bucket on his young victims.
A press release by the Toronto Police Service states that “On Tuesday, November 26, 2019, at approximately 6 p.m., officers arrested a man in the Queen Street West and Spadina Avenue area.”
Samuel Opoku was charged with five counts of assault with a weapon and five counts of mischief interfere with property.
