CNE will decide later this year if the CNE next summer will include Youth Day. For the second year in a row violence broke out and the evening was cut short for tens of thousands of young people who literally seemed to take over CNE Grounds.
Once violence broke out mayhem followed. Additional police and TTC staff rushed to The Old Lady of Lake Ontario, by then arrests were made, some bodies bruised and bloodies and families were both shocked and visibly annoyed by the shenanigans. The CNE would be foolish to hold another Youth Day in 2017 since plans no doubt would call for more costly safeguards and it may not be worth the trouble. Sad.
