From the Twitter files...
Weird or What?

The Twitter video, which went viral, showed a bunch of Turkeys circling a dead cat - over and over again.

Up until yesterday, no explanation was given, but according to website, The Verge, they might be performing what’s called a “predator inspection,” where the prey performs a risky ritual by approaching its predator to let them know they're being inspected!

However, in this case, the cat's dead so what's up with that? Well, the explanation given was that the turkeys were "stuck in some kind of never-ending circle, with each bird following the tail in front of it."

VIDEO: Celebrating the Greenbelt's 12th Birthday: The Growers Prayer by Shane Koyczan

The poem is a celebration of Ontario’s bountiful farmland, the calm of its forests, the vitality of its water, and the joys of life in the Greenbelt. It’s also a call to action—the Greenbelt is stronger when we raise our voices to grow and protect it, helping to ensure a sustainable future for generations to come. Take a moment to listen, reflect, and connect with Ontario's natural fortune.

"Filth City" - The Movie Doug Ford Calls "Hurtful"

Doug Ford is calling the movie, Filth City, loosely based on the life of his late brother Rob Ford, "hurtful" and referred to the people behind it as "scumbags", according to the Hamilton Spectator.
The trailer which was shot in Hamilton was released in early March.

When a mayor running for re-election is caught on video smoking crack, he'll do whatever it takes to keep it out of the wrong hands. Inspired by true events.
This is fiction, inspired by real persons and events. Fictionalized characters, events and dialogue are used for dramatic purposes. No inference about any real persons should be drawn from the events and characters depicted herein.

From the Hamilton Spectator:
Speaking to Newstalk 1010's Rush with Ryan Doyle and Jay Michaels program Tuesday, Ford called the film Filth City "a joke." 
"It's not even accurate, even the trailer, people getting shot. You've got to be kidding," Ford told Newstalk 1010. "It's outside of Rob had that issue, went and got help, I was proud of him. After that, a loss of life, so it's hurtful. 
"But there's always scumbags out there that are going to do this and try to profit off anything they can."
