Boom

It wasn't me.

Honest.

Yes, I was in Toronto today...not far from Yonge and Bloor...but it wasn't me.

And if you need a witness, I was brunching with the very gracious
Tania from Candied Quince at Over Easy.

For those of you who don't know what I'm referring to, here's a link to The Toronto Star's
Tim Hortons explosion kills one.

I didn't find out about it until I came home about an hour ago when the
exbf asked me if the bomb in Toronto affected my plans. (What?!)

I also want to know what it is with our home-grown bombers. I mean, look what happened in Spain, London and 9/11--all major centres --transportation, business and military.
But here...our targets are doughnut/coffee shops...

No, this isn't the first time it's happened--for those of you who've forgotten your Canadian history, the FLQ targetted The Second Cup because they didn't translate their name into French.

So what was behind today's explosion? I don't know. And I'm not going to play guessing game as to why...


I just hope it all stops NOW and no innocent people are hurt or killed.

Jasmine,

I echo your sentiments completely!

I found out about the explosion from my sister on Sunday afternoon and had the same reaction: "What?!"

I agree about the interesting choice of targets, if indeed this was a bomb. It brings to mind the "revolt" Canadians staged over negative option cable billing (remember that?). THIS is what upsets us?? THIS is how we react??

Anyway ... Lovely brunch! Can't wait to do it again!

Glad you're safe and sound. My thoughts and prayers will be with those affected, including people who need to do such horried things.

How cool to hang out with Tania!
