VIDEO: Vinyl Ambush and Peel Region Police Jam Session!

So much for calling the police on a noise complaint. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em? ...
The police were called to a birthday party in Mississauga to investigate a band playing too loudly. The teenage members of Vinyl Ambush expected to get shut down, but to their surprise, one of the officers sat down at the drums and proved he had some musical chops of his own. - thestar

Vinyl Ambush played a private event last night and it wasn't long before the Peel Police showed up. We thought the show was over but much to everyone's delight, they joined in for an incredible jam session. They were so impressed by the band instead of putting a stop to the show they wanted to join in then offered the band words of wisdom. Talk about community outreach. Many thanks to Peel Region Police for making it such a fun and memorable night for the Band and everyone there. You guys ROCK!

TWITTER: The catering requirements for #TrumpInIsrael seem kinda OCD...

It seems he's a fan of Sara Lee pies, Krispy Kreme donuts, Hungry Man Fried Chicken Frozen dinners - all the good stuff...

WATCH: Sea Lion Unexpectedly Drags Girl into Water at Vancouver-area Wharf

That's one huge sea lion - and it all happened so fast! The sea lion dragged a young girl into the waters at the Steveston Fisherman's Wharf in Richmond, B.C.
Thankfully, as you'll see, the little girl was rescued immediately.

Initially, after watching the video, we were curious as to why the sea lion showed an interest in the girl but discovered later (after reading the CBC news article), that it probably thought her dress was food!
According to SFU student Michael Fujiwara, the guy who captured it on video, the family began feeding it bread crumbs as the young girl got closer to the edge of the dock.

Andrew Trites, the director of UBC's Marine Mammal Research Unit, does not blame the animal for its behaviour in the video, according to another CBC news article:
"My first reaction to the video is just how stupid some people can be to not treat wildlife with proper respect," he said. "This was a male California sea lion. They are huge animals. They are not circus performers. They're not trained to be next to people." 
According to Canada's Marine Mammal Regulations, "no person shall disturb a marine mammal except when fishing." 
Trites says the sea lion in the video looks like it is used to having people feed it.

As a result of the incident...

It's a good thing it didn't bite her when it dragged her in because their bites "can cause very serious infections that may lead to amputation of a limb or even death."

VIDEO: Carp have taken over a baseball diamond on Toronto Island

Seems like the recently flooded Toronto Island has attracted some new residents...

Toronto Island have a carp infestation at Gibraltar Point Baseball Park. The fish will eventually have to be caught by net when the water resides.

Our Images of Flooded Lakeside Park Beach, Port Dalhousie (32 Photos)

Took a trip down to the ol' port the other day to personally check out the flooding and it was exactly as we've been witnessing in the many photos online. It was a clear day, the sun was shining brightly - from the beach you could see Toronto in the distance (as you'll see in some of the photos) but the wind was very cold. As you'll also see, despite the flooding, work still goes on, on the pavilion...
