OTTAWA, Canada (Reuters) – Looting broke out in Ottawa after dark Thursday, Ottawa police said, as a major power outage pitched much of Ontario into darkness.
“There is serious looting going on (in parts of Ottawa),” said Ottawa police chief Vince Bevan, adding there have been reports of break-ins, smashed windows and theft in the nation’s capital.
Ontario declared a state of emergency after the power outage which left much of Canada’s most populous province and parts of the northeastern United States in the dark. [/quote]
Hey, not trying to tease you Canadians, …ok, maybe I am, but I thought this kind of things only happens in Philippines, Indonesia, Iraq, etc., but Ottawa? Ottawa seems to be a nice and safe city, and people there are nice too!!!
