    The caller’s voice sounded muffled over the phone. Did he have something tied over his mouth? Was he the victim of a robbery? From her desk inside the 911 emergency call centre at the Elgin Street police station, Carole Lachance could tell the call had come through the switchboard of the Governor General’s residence.

    Ayoub Omar had barely passed midcourt when, to his defender’s surprise, he leapt and took aim at the hoop. Not the tallest 14-year-old you’ve probably ever met, it’s unlikely he was aware of Drake’s In My Feelings blasting throughout the gym as he released the basketball in a high arc, or thought much, as the ball […]
