2. ANOTHER EAST END SHOOTING
There are calls for an east end Toronto cafe’s closure following another fatal shooting on the weekend. A 20 year old man was killed in a drive by outside Cloud Nine Cafe on Danforth near Coxwell. Last May there was a fatal shooting, and in 2013 a firefighter was stabbed to death at the same location.

3. TIGER LUNCH
The cops are still trying to identify the woman who jumped the first barrier outside the tiger cage at the Toronto Zoo to get her hat. She could face a $2000 fine, after the YouTube video surfaced Saturday.
4. RAPTORS AVOID TWITTER
Jurassic Park outside the ACC was packed Saturday for the 1st Raptors playoff game of the year. If you want to chirp Kyle Lowry and DeMar DeRozan off the court…you can’t. They have opted out of checking social media during playoffs. The Raptors players want to steer clear of negative comments.
