Weapon makes Cameo appearance
A 22-year-old Toronto man is in jail pending a bail hearing Friday after being caught with a blank-firing pistol outside Cameo nightclub on University Ave. in Waterloo last Friday morning. Police were on the scene following a disturbance and found the man carrying a pistol.
According to a source quoted in Monday’s Globe and Mail, rumours of Facebook opening an office in Kitchener may be just that. Over a month ago, some reports seemed to indicate that the massive social networking site planned to acquire office space in the renovated Breithaupt Block development across from UW’s
Pharmacy School along King St. The source, said to be ‘close to the company’ denied that any such plan was in place. A former rubber manufacturing and auto parts plant, the century-old Breithaupt Block is being converted into office space similar to that at the Tannery development nearby.
