THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

Richmond Hill Post - - News -

THE GOOD: A life­saver is a life­saver, even on their day off. When rain came pour­ing down on June 17 and four male golfers on the Bethesda Grange Golf Course were struck by light­ning, it looked bleak for a 60-year-old man from Richmond Hill. Fol­low­ing the strike, an ICU nurse named Chris Bur­den from Stouf­fville who was en­joy­ing a day off at the links, sprung to ac­tion. Bur­den rushed to the man, who was al­legedly with­out vi­tal signs and per­formed CPR — bring­ing the man back to con­scious­ness.

THE BAD: The Lib­er­als may have won a ma­jor­ity govern­ment in the re­cent provin­cial elec­tion, and Vaughan Lib­eral in­cum­bent Steven Del Duca may have eas­ily taken his rid­ing, but he wasn’t above mak­ing a mis­take in his cam­paign. Days be­fore the vote, Del Duca was crit­i­cized for cir­cu­lat­ing a pam­phlet with a pic­ture of for­mer PC leader Tim Hu­dak laugh­ing glee­fully su­per­im­posed onto a scene from The Dark Knight fea­tur­ing a hospi­tal ex­plod­ing. Del Duca later ad­mit­ted that it was a mis­take. THE BIZARRE: Be­tween last month’s Amer­i­can al­li­ga­tors liv­ing in a lo­cal shed and now a way­ward pea­cock, 905ers have proven to be keep­ing some in­ter­est­ing pets. A Thorn­hill fam­ily is miss­ing one of its two pet pea­cocks. The pea­cock, Di­a­mond, wan­dered away from its home in the area of Les­lie Street and High­way 7. There have been a few sight­ings of a pea­cock around town. These birds can’t re­ally fly, but if they flap vig­or­ously enough they can get a few feet into the air. If you’ve seen Di­a­mond, please con­tact so­hil­[email protected]­mail.com.
