    I can't seem to find ANY news on the man who was shot dead by the police for taking a Toronto hospital's emergency room hostage, on New Year's Eve. It happened in 2004.

    Did the Toronto Government ban all news on this incident?

    I don't recall you making this thread...

    It's not academic work. I was watching John Q, the commentator said a member of the SWAT Team of Toronto's police force said it happened in real life, but the criminal was shot, dead. According to the commentator, that criminal used a toy gun.

    I only managed to find this, but when I went to CBS News, the article wasn't there:

    TORONTO, CANADA
    Man shot by police at Toronto hospital (CBS News )
    Tragedy and anger struck a hospital emergency room in Toronto on New Year's Eve. A man was shot and killed by police after he held a doctor at gunpoint


    Seems to be no full story of this incident...

    I thought that the way I spelt "collage" made it clear that I was not being serious.

    Really? My instincts tell me you're pitifully trying to talk your way out of this grammar and lunacy mistake. :rolleyes: :yep: :nah:

    The only shooting story I can find from that date in Toronto is this one:
