Two local businesses named as gang hangouts

The Toronto Star claims that a local gang (the “Five Point Generalz”) could be found at two local establishments, Mario Bros Restaurant and The Central Bar and Grill.

The Five Point Generalz were swept up in a recent police bust, Project Corral. The gang was also recently involved in a violent turf war,  the murder of a child (Efraim Brown), and the shooting of Shaquan Cadougan, 4.

Mike Sullivan to run again?

Mike Sullivan, the former NDP candidate for Ward 11 and anti-diesel airport train campaigner, may be taking another run at the federal seat for York South-Weston.

On Tuesday, Sullivan appeared with Peggy Nash and Andrew Cash in a video that identified them all as NDP candidates. Cash and Nash had previously made their intentions to run clear, but Sullivan’s website had not announced his candidacy.

Three candidates for councillor

Three candidates are running for the position of councillor for Ward 11, with the municipal election still months away.

Incumbent Frances Nunziatta, who has served for three terms, is up against underdogs Leo Marshall and Abdi Hashised. Marshall has recently started a website, while Hashised appears to have no online presence.
