Toronto may be a hub of multiculturalism, but unfortunately, the city's efforts to celebrate all cultures and nationalities haven't prevented racial discrimination from rearing its ugly head from time to time. Recently it was one of the city’s hottest hangouts, Toronto’s Cactus Club Cafe, that was facing such accusations.

Cactus Club became the subject of a fiery Twitter thread last week after a local DJ slammed the restaurant for enforcing discriminatory rules. “Cactus Club really canceled their DJs on caribana weekend? Between this and them telling me to “not cater to the caribana crowd” I don’t know how y’all can still eat there,” DJ Big Jacks tweeted on Sunday.

Reshma Niazi was stunned to learn the town charges residents $59 fee to recover confiscated signs. In an email, she said she wants her money refunded. "I'm not an accountant, but this makes absolutely no sense to me," Niazi said "There's much better things a town could be doing with their inspectors.
