This could be the most Canadian crime ever. A 31-year-old Toronto man has been arrested after he allgedly hijacked a TTC bus with a knife and forced the driver to take him to a nearby Tim Hortons.

Fortunately, no one was hurt. The man has since been arrested.

Among them was a $400,000 charge for “koala and other marsupial-related events.” “This government is obsessed with hugging koalas,” opposition minister Pat Conroy said. “[It] spent I think it was $130,000 taking diplomats to Western Australia where they hugged wombats for a change – so at least they changed up the marsupial.” It’s unclear how the figures were calculated.
Instead of kicking the habit, this guy allegedly kicked down a door. Police say New Mexico man Ellis C. Battista used his foot to break the lower panel of a convenience store door so he could force his way in. But rather than robbing the cash register, he instead took a pack of cigarettes and left $6 on the counter. He also made sure the store’s cameras could see him pay for it. Even though he tried to keep it honest, Battista was still charged with fourth-degree breaking and entering.
