THE GOOD, THE BAD and THE BIZARRE

Richmond Hill Post - - News -

THE GOOD:

In a tale that gives ev­ery­one the warm and fuzzies, stu­dents from the spe­cial ed­u­ca­tion class at Rich­mond Green Sec­ondary School raised money for the home­less with, well, blan­kets. The stu­dents paired up with Mo­saic In­ter­faith Out of the Cold, a York Re­gion char­ity that works with 14 in­ter­faith com­mu­ni­ties. Us­ing a Cana­dian theme as a start­ing point, the stu­dents made and then raf­fled off fleece blan­kets boast­ing the likes of Moun­ties, curl­ing rocks and the ole Maple Leaf. In the end, they were pre­sented with a $450 cheque.

THE BAD:

A pesky thief was caught on a se­cu­rity cam­era steal­ing a grad­u­ate stu­dent’s back­pack at a crowded restau­rant in Markham. The vic­tim stood up from her meal and found her bag miss­ing and, with it, un­fin­ished school­work and a lap­top that she had to re­place her­self. The se­cu­rity cam­era footage re­vealed that the sus­pect was in the restau­rant for 10 min­utes be­fore zoomed in on the bag, stash­ing it un­der a jacket be­fore leav­ing. No ar­rests have been made, and York Re­gional Po­lice rec­om­mend that peo­ple keep their be­long­ings in sight.

THE BIZARRE:

Stouf­fville has oh so ca­su­ally set a world record for the long­est live con­cert streamed over the In­ter­net (or some other more of­fi­cial term from the Guin­ness World Records). The non-stop con­cert, or­ga­nized by Kevin Ker, be­gan on St. Patrick’s Day at the Earl of Whitchurch pub. But the fight ain’t over yet. With an end goal of nab­bing the world’s long­est con­cert, a cool 16 days of live tunes con­tin­ues, draw­ing crowds aplenty and two- to three-hour line­ups. Re­gard­less of the end re­sult, Stouf­fville is fi­nally on the map.
