Damage to the apartment was minimal and there were no injuries.

Being that as of yet the SPVM are unsure of who is behind the firebombing of Cafe Shalom on Queen Mary, and with the PQ stirring the “religious accommodations” pot, police in Jewish neighbourhoods will be taking extra precautions to ensure our safety over the weekend.
Meir Feig, a community Askan, spoke with police headquarters to organize the extra protection. “We’d like to ask members of the Jewish community to remain vigilant and to report any suspicious behaviour to the authorities,” said Mr. Feig, “police work is based on stats and if incidents are not reported it’s as if they never happened”
With no apparent motive behind the attack, police are not ruling out the possibility that it was racially motivated. Bnai Brith Canada has informed Bill613.com that they are monitoring the story closely. Police have turned the investigation over to arson specialists.
