Hurricane Hazel goes fishing, catches rainbow trout


TORONTO – Ninety-three-year-old Hazel McCallion was the only politician to snag a fish during the last week of the Great Ontario Salmon Derby.

Unfortunately, it wasn’t a salmon.

The mayor snagged a rainbow trout from the back of a boat on Lake Ontario.

“It’s just great, fantastic,” she said. “About three or four pounds. That’s really good eating fish.”

“He’s a wild one.”

The trip wasn’t as wild as last year however when Mayor Rob Ford had to brace Hazel while she reeled in a huge salmon.

She thanked Ford with a peck on the cheek.
