A delayed Air Canada flight to Frankfurt was pleasantly surprised by an impromptu, in-flight serenade from the Lemon Bucket Orkestra at Toronto’s Pearson Airport. Air Canada was so delighted that passengers were happy, they decided to make the group an offer to appear on all flights to Frankfurt. Unfortunately the deal didn’t work out after Air Canada found out that they would actually have to pay the band.
“We’ve never heard of Canadian artists actually charging a fee for anything.” A confused spokesperson for Air Canada told the media.

Looks like Toronto Mayor Rob Ford had to call the cops again and he’s not too happy about it. Ford is requesting that journalist, Daniel Dale be fired from his position at The Toronto Star after an altercation near his home. Ford confronted the reporter after a neighbour alerted him that there was someone near his property. Ford somehow managed to scare Dale enough that he gave him his cell phone and camera. It turned out that Dale was pursuing a story about the mayor looking to buy public property beside his home.
The mayor feels he needs all this property to ‘protect’ his family. During an interview with local media, Ford continuously says that the property in question is a “football field” away. Wait a minute…Ford needs more than a football field of land to keep his kids safe? Are people constantly throwing grenades at him? If the Mayor is afraid of some skinny reporter, investigating a story, perhaps he should just buy the entire GTA. Almost everyone in Toronto has a camera. He couldn’t possibly confiscate them all…or could he?
It seems that Mayor Ford wants to keep Toronto out of his backyard. And increasingly, Toronto wants Ford out of theirs.
In related news. Ford called Prime Minister Harper right after this terrifying run in with death and requested he be given an F35 fighter jet to spot roving reporters. Harper agreed right away. It seems they agree that there is nothing more terrifying than someone who might not agree with your politics.
