First of all, we have the breaking news that Former Toronto police chief Julian Fantino will be named commissioner of the Ontario Provincial Police. Thanks to one of my readers, Liberal Supporter for that heads-up last night. He also has an interesting suggestion for Fantino in the previous thread regarding Caledonia.
I love this line, which is astonishing coming from the "Red" Star:
The native standoff in Caledonia has sapped the morale of the OPP and left the premier somewhat enfeebled, having spent millions of dollars unsuccessfully trying to resolve the dispute.
"Enfeebled". I love it!
And on that note, the Star also reports that Mayor Marie Trainer says she's prepared to declare a state of emergency this weekend. So does that give Fantino carte blanche to shut everything down and send the protestors home?
The drama continues. Life is never dull here in McFeebleland.
