Nothing's been reported and we are not aware of any major evacuations. Literally nothing has come across our desk. The biggest story for us right now is Justin Bieber; it's a crowd-control issue. Someone found out where he's staying, Toronto Constable Victor Kwong told the National Post.
Fans have gathered outside a hotel in the neighborhood of Yorkville, where Bieber is staying with girlfriend Selena Gomez.
Local reports north of the border confirmed that Tuesday's 5.9 magnitude earthquake reached parts of Toronto, Ottawa, Montreal and New Brunswick.
