According to Ontario’s Ministry of Natural Resources, this is what you’re supposed to do if a back bear approaches you aggressively: ”stand your ground and be aggressive – use your whistle or air horn, yell, stand tall, wave your arms and throw objects.”
The bear in this video isn’t aggressive at all. In fact, he looks completely uninterested but this drunk dude thinks it would be super funny to be a jerk anyway. Then he posts at is if he’s this Bear Whisperer but instead he’s the drunk guy chasing after an apathetic, innocent bear cub.
Watch it here:
If Batman had a night out in Toronto he’d be able to crack all kinds of mysteries. But opening an original, non-spicy, beef jerky stick might be a little tough for him. This seems to be the case when Batman went on the prowl for drugs in Toronto yesterday, scouring the subways, coffee shops and streets in his pursuit.
Batman meets tons of people on his adventure, including legitimate policemen who he insists on ticketing and a random streeter who takes him out to party. His real name is Alex Brovedani, and he’s a stand-up comedian who grew up in Woodbridge, Ontario. He first wore batman’s cape on Halloween and has since taken to the streets with his deep, throaty voice.
Brovedani does a perfect impersonation, though his slow run gives him away. If you, like me, are totally impressed by Batman you can follow him at @TorontoBatman.

When you get recognition from John Mayer, you are doing something right. London, Ontario native Ken Yates is a student at Berklee College in Boston where he is studying music, who has received that recognition.
Within his program at Berklee, Yates had the opportunity to spend time with Mayer and get some one on one mentoring, reports OurLondon.ca.
“John Mayer went to Berklee for a year,” Yates explains. “In March he came back again for a day and I was lucky enough to be picked…to do a private Master’s class with John, which was amazing, and we got to play a song for John.”
Since then, John Mayer has promoted the song Yates played for him, “I Don’t Wanna Fall in Love.” He recently posted about the song on his website.
That’s a pretty awesome accomplishment for a guy from small town London, Ontario.
An Ontario man is facing a felony charge in Chicago for allegedly making up a story about being robbed of tickets to the final Oprah show tapings, reports CTV.
44-year-old Robert Spearing told police he was beaten and robbed of the tickets on Tuesday by two men. However, the police said he later admitted to making up the story to avoid telling his wife they had travelled to Chicago without tickets.
Police allege Spearing cut his own forehead with a rock and scraped his hands on the sidewalk to mimic injuries.
Spearing was charged with felony disorderly conduct for allegedly filing a false police report and was ordered held pending a hearing next week.
This is so ridiculous. I mean, really? You’d cut yourself with a rock to avoid telling your wife you didn’t get Oprah tickets? Jesus, celebrities definitely bring out the crazy in people. I’m sure your wife would have forgave you. Would she be a little pissed? Yes. It’s Oprah’s final show. But a mad wife is better then a crime charge. Good job.
It looks like Lloyd Banks is heading home reports MTV News. The rapper and three members of his entourage have been held in a Kitchener, Ontario jail since Saturday after allegedly beating and robbing a concert promoter for hours. The dispute stems to a disagreement Banks had with the promoter over appearance and performance fees. Bail is being set at $50,000 for Banks and $25,000 each for the other three gentlemen.
“There has been an agreement between the prosecution and defense for his release and the release for each of the individuals,” Patrick Ducharme, Banks’ legal counsel in Canada, told MTV News on Monday (January 11). “I expect for him to be released tomorrow morning. It’s just a question of posting some bail, which I’m going to do. I’m going up there tonight with the money, and they’ll be released sometime tomorrow morning.”
G-Unit’s Lloyd Banks is being held by police in Kitchener, Ontario, reports MTV. Banks performed at Club NV in nearby Blandford, Ontario on Friday night, which later lead to an altercation with the show’s promoter over payment for appearance and performance fees.
We are not saying that we are mind readers or we can see into the future, however we are not surprised by Avril Lavigne’s break up from her rocker husband Deryck Whibley. As Jordan explained in our XM radio show last week, we had an opportunity to interview Avril a few weeks ago when she was promoting the launch of her new clothing line, Abbey Dawn. We also saw Deryck there and had a quick interview with him. Although Deryck tried to be as courteous as possible, it was more than clear that he had no interest in being there, and there was something else happening behind the scenes. He just stood in the corner with a pissed off look. You can check out the interview below. Nevertheless we wish both Avril and Deryck the best of luck.
