“(Y/N), you in here?” Dean’s voice echoed through the
bunker’s cavernous garage.
“Yeah, over here!” you called back.
The tread of Dean’s footfalls against the concrete floor
grew steadily louder as he approached your car.
His boots appeared in your line of sight, next to the front tire,
followed by his face as he bent over to look under the car.
“(Y/N), what are you doing under there?” Dean questioned,
his jade eyes lit with amusement.
“It’s called an oil change, genius,” you replied, giving the
oil filter one last twist with the wrench, securing it into place. After inserting the drain plug, you grabbed
the drain pan full of used oil and tugged it along as you shimmied out from
under the car.
“Obviously it’s an oil change,” Dean chuckled. “I mean, why are you changing the oil? You

Toronto’s mayor still has confidence in the city’s police force, but at least two councillors are speaking out about police accountability in the wake of several high profile incidents.
On Monday, Const. James Forcillo was found guilty of attempted murder in Sammy Yatim’s 2013 shooting death aboard a TTC streetcar. On Wednesday, police announced an officer had been charged under the Police Services Act for firing 15 bullets into a stopped car during an arrest. And earlier Thursday, four officers were charged with perjury and obstructing justice in connection with a drug investigation that was thrown out by a judge.
CBC News has learned that in total,14 Toronto officers are currently suspended with pay. At city hall, Coun. Michael Thompson told reporters these incidents are eroding public faith in police.
“They are not above the law. They must abide by the rules,” Thompson said.
“People have to have confidence that if they are pulled over by the police that they are going to be treated fairly.”
Before these latest findings and incidents, Toronto police also faced criticism for their reliance on carding and how officers deal with people in crisis, which was the focus of two major reports.

“a lulling sensation that made him feel like he was in the sky; sitting on a cloud, watching the world go by beneath him. He felt like he had eaten the stars and a light was coursing inside of him, bleaching him. Making him pure again.”
