Explosion at Tim Hortons - one person dead
Frank Tridico -- SooNews.ca -- Sunday, April 2, 2006, 7:51PM
Toronto investigating officers refuse to comment on whether a Sunday explosion in a Tim Hortons bathroom was in fact a bomb. The blast occurred just after 1:00pm near the intersections of Yonge and Bloor Streets, one of the busiest downtown areas.
A fire department spokesperson stated that the lone victim had burns to his body, but a fire did not ensue in the building after the blast. Witnesses described complete chaos and pandemonium with persons immediately fleeing the scene.
Large Area Cordoned Off
Law enforcement cordoned off approximately one city block and evacuated the area as a precaution. The moves, particularly the expansive coverage of area to collect potential evidence, raises questions over whether investigators suspect it may have been premeditated, and/or if there may have been further locations within the radius that could be at risk of a similar explosion.
Officers held the aforementioned pattern until other support and special investigation units arrived to expand and enhance the investigation. Early news reports said a man was seen going into the restroom with explosives strapped to his chest. Police would not confirm the reports.
The police bomb squad worked at the scene for much of the afternoon. They used a remote controlled bomb disposal robot to investigate an object found nearby. Yonge Street was shut down in both directions between Yorkville and Bloor, reportedly tying up traffic around one of the City's busiest intersections.
There is no word yet on what caused the blast. Once police declare the scene to be safe the fire marshal's office will begin an investigation.
Lockdown at another Tim Hortons
Later Sunday, another Tim Hortons outlet in Toronto was locked down after a suspicious package was found inside the restaurant, just a few subway stations north of where the explosion occurred. An emergency task force unit had been dispatched to the second location and the area had been evacuated.
While Toronto has seen an upsurge in gun related crime, and a rise in both drug trafficking and gang expansion, the current developments raise particular alarm. At issue is whether the explosion was a premeditated act, and what role if any the victim had to the explosion itself.
Information by law enforcement and other investigating authorities has been limited, much more so than in its early stages, and prompting greater concern over what has developed. SooNews.ca will continue bringing you developments as they unfold
let's hope he's the only moron who died.
Canada, you just lost your suicide bomber virginity.
Doesn't feel all that nice to be morally raped by a turd wrapped in C4, does it?
So I guess it's now time to step up the right wing facist patriotism and denounce Islam and condemn it's followers to the ghettos?
Waiting with baited breath. Here's a real test for your Prime minister.
I am interested in how the government handle this... and I hope it's not too soft, nor too radical.
I can't help but feel like comparing the response to an American one. It's a stigma for Canada to be inclose proximity geographically to the Bush administration.
Many outsiders see Canada as a conservative and free thinking society but so many ignorant people out there think Canada is part of the US, because of it's geographic location. I've seen schoolkids point this out and it horrifies me.
So I am waiting for people to compare the Canadian response to an american one, which would be to strike fear into the heart of each and every one of you, and place a curfew on the whole city.
what is this world coming to...
Canada had a taste of terrorism before it became schick in the US. 1985 Air India bombing.
Bagri and Malik had been on trial since April 28, 2003, in a proceeding that has cost more than $100 million. The cost of the investigation brings the bill so far to about $130 million.
