This reporting is why you should subscribe to the @TorontoStar . More than 120 police officers in Ontario are currently suspended with pay, some for many years. Union loves it, police chiefs hate it and Premier Ford won't change the law. via @TorontoStar 

Brampton porch pirate arrested after getaway car becomes stuck in snow bank. Victim watches aghast, tries to explain front-wheel drive to him. Cops yell at thief quite loudly.

@EmmaMci  @NatObserverT  @TorontoStarh @njavede  clarity of the explanatory writing, the vision of that map, that photo, grabs readers right away. If you knew relatively little about that allegedly pointless and destructive Toronto highway plan, this is gold. Best in class.
