Crazy Busy in the GTA

It was nothing short of a crazy shift last night. I started early for a shooting aboard a streetcar at the Main St. TTC Station and really never stopped for the rest of the night. I went to get some shots and a few clips as a locomotive was moved through the streets of Toronto to a new home at the Roundhouse. Cops who were directing traffic told us they had a rollover on the Gardiner Expressway. I got some shots and on a quiet night this may have made the show but not last night.

 We had a three year old boy wander out of his house in Mississauga only to be hit by a truck on Britannia. The crazy thing is the driver never stopped. Luckily some witnesses caught him for police. The boy was airlifted to Sick Kids and he will survive. Peel Police have charged the driver.
I couldn’t help but notice all those ETF trucks pass me on the way home. After a little investigation I figured out that they were off to wake up some bad guys. I tagged along into the Malton area and watched as they ordered out residents of a house at gun point. I felt sorry for the upstairs tenants, who seemed to get caught up in the action, but they got their targets and I hear that they actually did two locations. Seems the pinch was for “a bunch of armed robberies” so good for you guys. A few less bandits on our streets.
