Default The Jamaican influence in Toronto.

As a Torontonian, it’s not unusual to see white guys shake hands while greeting each other with a,*wa gwaan? I wouldn’t say I particularly enjoy witnessing this — actually, it can feel quite painful — and it’s even worse when they point to the*man dem*over there, or unfurl several*bombaclat’s. I wanted to crawl into a hole that time I encountered a bunch of dudes shouting*“Gaza mi seh!”*Over the past few years, most certainly because of*Drake, these instances of public patois faux pas have increased. It seems like*everyone has a take*on what they perceive as*Drake-cabulary*— phrases like*come through*or*ting*or*from time—*without realizing Drizzy slang*is Toronto slang, which, in turn,*is adapted from Jamaican patois. So does anyone actually know what the hell they’re saying?

"It therefore is useless and pointless, unless it is for share malice and victimisation to arrest and charge a 92-year-old man for such a simple offence. There is nothing morally wrong with this man smoking a spliff; the only thing wrong is that it is still on the law books," said Chevannes.
