Germany won the World Cup final last night against Argentina. The nail biting match ended with celebrations across the city. Etobicoke’s German restaurant the Musket, Yonge-Dundas Square and outside the CBC buildings were all full of fans celebrating Germany’s 1-0 victory. This is the first year Germany won the title since being a united country.
T-minus 1 year
The Pan Am games are set to take place in Toronto in one year as of Friday July 11. A count down clock (weighing 7.3 tonnes) was unveiled at Nathan Phillip’s Square with the help of various government officials including Mayor Rob Ford and Premier Kathleen Wynne. The celebration lasted two days and included athlete appearances, music, and competitions. The Pan Am Games will take place on July 10-26, 2015.
Food Safety Warning
Walmart stores across the GTA have been victims to product tampering on July 11. Infant formula bottles’ tamper- proof seal were broken, and the 237ml bottles only contained water. The bottles have been taken off the shelves, and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency is working with Walmart in investigating the incident.
