She's a bit harsh on the media -- they have to write something. That said, while the Eaton Centre shooting is awful it really doesn't reflect much about Toronto as a whole. If it happened every weekend it would be important -- but it's not:
Most Canadians will have heard of the lethal shooting at Toronto's downtown Eaton Centre last Saturday evening, but the cruelties since inflicted upon the hapless citizenry may have escaped anyone outside the GTA.
As if the shooting spree in a crowded food court — it left one young man dead and one critically injured, a 13-year-old boy shot in the head and in serious condition in hospital, and several others less grievously hurt — wasn't terrible enough, Torontonians have been subjected to an unbelievable barrage of bad writing, oft-moronic commentary and a tsunami of hyperbole.
