Catch da Flava Radio - Toronto Police Plan to Ban Carding

On tonight’s Catch da Flava, we talked about the recent string of violence that has hit Toronto in the past week and a half; there have been incidents ranging from stabbings, shootings and bodies being found in places of worship. It is still early in 2016, at least in my opinion it is, I personally thought the violence in Toronto had slowed down since the huge burst earlier in January, where Toronto saw over 20 gun related incidents take place which resulted in 10 deaths.

On a similar topic, we talked about the Toronto Police’s plan to ban random instances of carding. The plan is to make sure every civilian is informed of the situation before being carded, and to ensure that Police Officers write a report about the reason for carding. Many of us at Catch da Flava have had incidents where we were carded without reason so naturally we would be in favour of this. However there is always a downside because it makes the police officers job a little more difficult and some real criminals could potentially slip through unnoticed. It will be interesting to see how the public takes this news.

During the second half of the show, we talked about self-care and about how each of us cool off and relax after a long day at school or work. Self-Care is very important in our day to day lives because it gives us a chance to escape the reality of life and escape into our own world for a couple of hours. Self-Care had great mental and physical health benefits whether it be taking a nap to help cool off, or going to the gym to workout. One form of self-care that wasn’t very popular among the Catch da Flava team was yoga. Yoga is usually marketed as a female thing however I tried it once and I loved it. To help us really understand self-care, yoga and meditation, we have arranged for a yoga instructor to come in and help us understand the benefits of taking care of your body whether it is through yoga or other forms of exercise.

Thank you for tuning in to Catch da Flava, we hope you’ve enjoyed your selves so far, make sure to tune in next week for our interview with the health instructor.
