Hate Crime Unit investigating after 2 nooses found at hospital construction site

BT Toronto | posted Wednesday, Jun 24th, 2020

The Toronto police Hate Crime Unit is investigating after two nooses were found outside a hospital in East York earlier this month.

Employees made the disturbing discovery as they were coming into work at a construction site at Michael Garron Hospital on June 10.

Toronto police were called to the site, located on Coxwell Avenue at Mortimer Avenue, and began an investigation.

EllisDon, the company heading the construction project, said nooses were strategically placed and that the act appeared to be racially motivated.

“I am appalled and outraged at the hateful and racist actions that took place at one of our construction sites. This will not be tolerated, not now, not ever,” CEO Geoff Smith said in a statement on June 12.

“We will work with Toronto Police Services, with every resource we can muster, to identify the guilty individual or individuals and ensure they are prosecuted to the fullest extent, and never allowed to participate in our industry again.”

The investigation was turned over to the Hate Crime Unit on Tuesday.

Police say numerous officers have been assigned to the case and that hospital staff have been very helpful in the investigation.

Major League Baseball to return in July

THE ASSOCIATED PRESS VIA CP | posted Wednesday, Jun 24th, 2020

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball issued a 60-game schedule Tuesday night that will start July 23 or 24 in empty ballparks as the sport tries to push ahead amid the coronavirus following months of acrimony.

A dramatically altered season with games full of new rules was the final result of failed financial negotiations. But for fans eager to see any baseball this year, at least now they can look forward to opening day.

The announcement by MLB came while more players continue to test positive for the virus– at least seven on the Philadelphia Phillies alone. And a stark realization remained, that if health situations deteriorated, all games could still be wiped out.

One day after the players’ association rejected an economic agreement and left open the possibility of a grievance seeking hundreds of millions of dollars in damages, the bickering sides agreed on an operations manual. Baseball Commissioner Rob Manfred then unilaterally imposed the schedule, his right under a March agreement with the union.

In a twist, the sides expanded the designated hitter to games involving National League teams for the first time and instituted the radical innovation of starting extra innings with a runner on second base.

Playoff teams remain at 10 for now– there is still talk of a possible expansion. The rejected deal had called for 16 teams.

Players will start reporting for the resumption of training on July 1. It remains to be seen which players will report back to work — high-risk individuals are allowed to opt-out and still receive salary and service time, but others who sit out get neither money nor the service credit needed for eligibility for free agency and salary arbitration.

Each team will play 10 games against each of its four division rivals and four games vs. each of the five clubs in the corresponding division in the other league, according to details obtained by The Associated Press.

A team is scheduled to make only one trip to each city it visits in MLB’s shortest season since 1878. a schedule of such brevity that some fans may question the legitimacy of records.

No matter what, the season will be among the most unusual ever for a sport that takes pride that the race for titles is a marathon and not a sprint: Washington started 19-31 and 27-33 last year but finished 93-69 to earn a wild card and won a seven-game World Series for its first title.

The trade deadline will be Aug. 31 and the deadline to be in an organization for post-season eligibility is Sept. 15. Teams can resume making trades Friday, when rosters will no longer be frozen.

Active rosters will be 30 during the first two weeks of the season, 28 during the second two weeks and 26 after that. They will not expand to 28 on Sept. 1, as originally intended this year.

With no minor leagues, teams would be allowed to retain 60 players each, including a taxi squad. Up to three players from the taxi squad can travel with a team to a game, and one of the three must be a catcher.

MLB is keeping the planned innovation that pitchers must face three batters or finish a half-inning — players refused to agree a year ago but also waived their right to block.

The injured list minimum for pitchers at 10 days rather than revert to 15, as initially intended.

Public opinion shredded both sides as they locked in a ferocious financial battle during a pandemic that has led to more than 120,000 deaths and 2.3 million infections in the U.S. and led to a 14.7% unemployment rate, the highest since the Great Depression.

MLB originally hoped to be the first U.S. major league to return, with an 82-game schedule starting around the Fourth of July, but public sniping broke out between management and players who distrust teams’ claims of economic losses following years of franchise appreciation. MLB claimed that without gate-related revenue it would lose $640,000 for each additional regular-season game, a figure the union disputed.

MLB became exasperated with the union’s leadership team, headed by former All-Star first baseman Tony Clark and Bruce Meyer, a litigator hired in August 2018. Manfred and Deputy Commissioner Dan Halem were infuriated when Clark said he considered the result of a one-on-one meeting with Manfred last week a proposal rather than what MLB termed a framework for a deal.

Rather than play 162 games over 186 days, the season will be 60 games over 66 or 67 days, depending on whether there is a nationally televised Thursday night opener. It is scheduled to end Sept. 27, which leaves little margin to make up September rainouts.

Players are being given staggered reporting times over several days for intake screening. The time will be used for coronavirus testing ahead of the resumption of workouts, which were stopped March 12 due to the pandemic.

Because of an uptick of infections in Florida and Arizona’s summer heat, 28 teams currently are leaning toward training in their regular-season ballparks. Detroit remained partial to Lakeland, Florida, and Toronto was hoping to gain government permission to work out at Rogers Centre.

Under terms of the deal, the sides reached on March 26, which was to have been opening day, players would receive prorated portions of their salaries if the 60-game schedule is not cut short by the virus. Salaries originally totalled $4 billion, and the prorated portion of about 37% reduces pay to $1.48 billion.

Salaries were to have ranged from $563,500 at the minimum to $36 million for Mike Trout and Gerrit Cole at the top, but the spread would now be from $208,704 to $13,333,333.

MLB initially had sought last month in its initial economic proposal to reduce pay to about $1 billion, and players vowed not to give up full prorated pay and proposed a 114-game schedule that amounted to $2.8 billion.

The relationship deteriorated back to the level of the labour wars that led to eight work stoppages from 1972-95, and the union has threatened a grievance claiming MLB didn’t fulfil the provision in the March deal requiring the longest season economically feasible, conditioned by several other provisions. MLB would claim the union bargained in bad faith, and the case would be argued before arbitrator Mark Irvings.

That would be a prelude to the expiration of the current labour contract on Dec. 1, 2021, which likely will be followed by a lockout.

Toronto, Peel Region enter Stage 2 of Ontario’s COVID-19 recovery plan

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Wednesday, Jun 24th, 2020

Ontario’s two most heavily populated regions will see more businesses open their doors Wednesday as Toronto and Peel move into the next stage of the province’s COVID-19 recovery plan.

The two regions officially enter Stage 2 of the pandemic reopening framework, joining nearly all the rest of the province that began ramping up activities over the past two weeks.

Windsor-Essex remains the only region not cleared to move to the next phase, due to stubbornly high COVID-19 case numbers on farms in the region.

Businesses given the green light to resume operations in Toronto and Peel today include hair stylists, pools and tour guide services.

Restaurants are also allowed to reopen their patios for dine-in service, though no one is yet allowed to be served indoors.

In all cases, the Ontario government says proper physical distancing measures must be maintained to prevent a spike in COVID-19 cases.

What can open in Stage 2?

(Details below provided by the province of Ontario)

  • Outdoor dine-in services at restaurants, bars and other establishments, including patios, curbside, parking lots and adjacent properties
  • Daycares, with limits on the number of children at each facility
  • Select personal and personal care services, including tattoo parlours, barber shops, hair salons and beauty salon
  • Shopping malls under existing restrictions, including food services reopening for take-out and outdoor dining only
  • Tour and guide services, such as bike and walking, bus and boat tours, as well as tasting and tours for wineries, breweries and distilleries
  • Water recreational facilities, such as outdoor splash pads and wading pools, and all swimming pools
  • Beach access and additional camping at Ontario Parks
  • Camping at private campgrounds
  • Outdoor-only recreational facilities and training for outdoor team sports, with limits to enable physical distancing
  • Drive-in and drive-through venues for theatres, concerts, animal attractions and cultural appreciation, such as art installations
  • Film and television production activities, with limits to enable physical distancing

‘This system is not meant to be there for us,’ says family of man killed by police

LIAM CASEY, THE CANADIAN PRESS AND NEWS STAFF | posted Tuesday, Jun 23rd, 2020

Hundreds of people marched through the streets of Mississauga, Ont., on Monday to protest the police shooting of a 62-year-old man suffering from mental illness.

Joined by the man’s family, the crowd chanted “no justice, no peace, abolish the police” as they walked along a major thoroughfare with little police presence.

Ejaz Choudry was in the middle of a mental health crisis when the family said they called the non-emergency line for help around 5 p.m. on Saturday. Three hours later, Peel Regional Police officers stormed Choudry’s home, fired multiple shots, and killed him.

Choudry’s family has demanded that the officer who shot him be fired. They have also called for a public inquiry into the man’s death, as well as changes in the response to people in crisis.

“We want to create a system that is meant to be there for us,” said Choudry’s nephew, Hassan Choudhary.

“This system is not meant to be there for us. You’re in a mental health crisis and you’re faced by people with guns, people with body armour, people with authority over you, people demanding you, telling you what to do, instead of listening and trying to understand what’s wrong.”

At one point, the emotional crowd surrounded two police officers and screamed at them for change. Other protesters got between the officers and the crowd, which eventually marched on.

The Special Investigations Unit, the province’s police watchdog, is probing the death.

Choudry’s family had previously expressed its lack of faith in the SIU to conduct a thorough investigation, a position they reiterated on Monday.

“I need justice,” said Rafaqat Ali Choudry, the man’s younger brother. “Police is to protect us, not kill us. How I trust again?”

The family’s calls for a public inquiry were supported by the Opposition New Democrats, but Premier Doug Ford has expressed his confidence in the SIU.

“My heart and prayers go out to the family that lost a loved one, no matter what happened,” Ford said Monday at a news conference.

“This is a terrible situation, unfortunate, but let’s see what the report says because I don’t believe in pointing fingers at any group, any organization, until we get the details because the details will tell the story.”

The man’s family has said that responding officers were shouting at Choudry in English, a language he didn’t understand.

The family said Choudry had periodically held a kitchen knife on Saturday. They said they pleaded with police to allow them to talk to Choudry. Police had taken everyone outside the home except for Choudry, the family said.

“My uncle was a harmless man, he had no power to hurt anyone, he could barely breathe at times,” Choudhary said.

The crowd was condemned other fatal encounters between police and people in crisis, including the recent death of a 29-year-old woman in Toronto who fell from her balcony while officers were inside her home. The family of Regis Korchinski-Paquet has questioned the role of police in her death, which is also being investigated by the SIU.

They were also chanting the name of D’Andre Campbell, a 26-year-old man suffering from mental illness who was shot inside his home by Peel police responding to a domestic incident call.

Police Chief Nishan Duraiappah, Police Services Board issue statements Friday evening

Police Chief Nishan Duraiappah offered his condolences to the family and said he has been communicating with the region’s Muslim Advisory Committee.

“I have been in consultation with our Muslim Advisory Committee and will be consulting other stakeholders in the community and experts in the field of mental health, to do all that is necessary to support those experiencing mental health distress,” he said in a statement Monday evening. “I ask for calm and patience as we sketch our path forward and as the investigations unfold what transpired.”

The Peel Police Services Board, the civilian body governing police in the municipality, said in a statement they could not comment on the specifics of the investigation as the incident is being investigated by the SIU.  However, they said they are asking the SIU to keep the public informed on the status of the investigation.

“The board and Peel Police Chief Nishan Duraiappah, have requested that the SIU work as expeditiously as possible to conclude these investigations so that the public can be informed of their full findings,” the said. “Where possible, the board is also requesting that the SIU provide updates to the public on the status of the investigations.”

They added that “the grave impacts of these tragic events will undoubtedly inform the board’s work on key issues, such as community engagement, strategic planning, and the 2021 budget.”

A long fight to make the Air India bombing a ‘Canadian’ tragedy

THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Tuesday, Jun 23rd, 2020

In today’s Big Story podcast, today is the 35th anniversary of the Air India bombing, which killed 329 people, 280 of them Canadian citizens. In the immediate tragedy, the terrorist attack was seen largely as a foreign incident. As recently as 2007, not even half of Canadians considered it a “Canadian” tragedy. Why did the largest mass murder of Canadians in the country’s history remain for so long a story about India and Ireland? And how have things changed in the past decade to reframe it?

Woman facing multiple charges after allegedly driving impaired on Highway 400: OPP

BT Toronto | posted Tuesday, Jun 23rd, 2020

A woman is facing multiple offences, including allegedly driving impaired, following multiple calls to 911 about an erratic driver on Highway 400 Sunday evening, Ontario Provincial Police (OPP) said Monday.

OPP Const. Kerry Schmidt said they received multiple calls to 911 at around 8 p.m. that a vehicle had been seen driving erratically on the southbound Highway 400 near Highway 88.

When OPP officers caught up to the vehicle, the driver did not initially stop for the police, Schmidt said.

“The vehicle was pulled over after some distance,” Schmidt said. “The driver initially did not stop, but the vehicle was eventually was stopped and condition of impairment was observed by the officer.”

Schmidt said the officer conducted a roadside impairment test, which the driver failed.

When the driver was tested again at the police detachment, the driver was found to have double the legal alcohol limit, Schmidt said.

Darya Selinevich, 27, of Richmond Hill, has been charged with multiple driving offences including impaired driving, impaired driving with excess alcohol, five counts of operation while prohibited, two counts of driving under suspension.  She was also charged with possession of drugs, in this case, it was cocaine, Schmidt said.

Selinevich has been remanded into custody.  No other information has been released by the police.

Two-thirds favour keeping 2 metres physical distance: Leger poll

JOAN BRYDEN THE CANADIAN PRESS | posted Tuesday, Jun 23rd, 2020

Two-thirds of Canadians don’t want to relax physical distancing rules imposed to curb the spread of COVID-19, a new poll suggests.

And even if they were relaxed, a strong majority wouldn’t be comfortable taking part in activities that would bring them closer to other people, like going to a movie theatre.

Sixty-six per cent of respondents to the poll, conducted by Leger and the Association for Canadian Studies, said two metres should remain the safe distance kept between people, as recommended by Canada’s public health authorities.

Just 12 per cent favoured reducing the distance to 1.5 metres, as is required in many European countries, and only 10 per cent favoured a reduction to one metre, the minimum recommended by the World Health Organization.

If the physical distancing rule were reduced to one metre, just 40 per cent said they’d be comfortable dining in a restaurant, 28 per cent going to a movie theatre, 24 per cent to a gym and 21 per cent to a bar or night club.

“We’ve been schooled on two metres for over three months now,” said Leger executive vice-president Andrew Enns.

“It’s difficult for Canadians to now suddenly start to be convinced that it’s OK to make that a closer distance.”

The online poll of 1,521 adult Canadians was conducted June 19 to 21. It cannot be assigned a margin of error because internet-based polls are not considered random samples.

Enns said the reluctance to get closer with their fellow Canadians reflects a “very persistent level of anxiety” about the deadly new coronavirus that causes COVID-19, despite a steady decline in the number of new cases in Canada.

Just 43 per cent of respondents said they believe the first wave of the pandemic is over and 74 per cent think there’ll be a second wave, according to the poll. And 51 per cent said they are very or somewhat afraid of contracting COVID-19.

Forty-two per cent said they believe the worst of the crisis is over but an equal number said we’re in the worst of it now or the worst is yet to come (10 per cent and 32 per cent, respectively).

Almost half (46 per cent) said they find it very or somewhat stressful to leave the house and go out in public.

Sixty-two per cent said it will take time before life returns to normal, while 28 per cent said it will never return to normal.

All those measures of continued anxiety about COVID-19 are likely contributing to people saying “I’m not going closer than two metres because this thing’s not over,” Enns said.
