    Toronto Outrage

    Blast reported at Misissauga eatery,An Indian place almost directly over fromTim Hortons in the shopping area located W of Keele on the west side of the metro area a tad s of Int Pearson Airport , a very nice area when I was there.

    Police received a call about an explosion at about 10:30 p.m. ET.
    Evans said Peel police have notified police in Toronto, York, Durham and Halton Regions as well as the Ontario Provincial Police and the RCMP as they search for two suspects.
    She said two separate, private parties were occurring in the restaurant. People were celebrating birthdays, police said. Children under age 10 were at the parties, but not injured.

    Three of the wounded rushed to a Toronto trauma centre and now said to be in stable condition 1:17

    Evans said it's too early to say if the blast in the area of Hurontario Street and Eglinton Avenue East was terror related.
    'No indication that this is a terrorist act'

    "There is no indication that this is a terrorist act, no indication that this is a hate crime. At this time, we haven't ruled anything out as we start our investigation."
    Officers are interviewing witnesses and victims and collecting evidence at the scene. People who left the restaurant are urged to call Peel police.
    The restaurant was evacuated after the incident and is now locked down as police investigate, she said. It will be hours before the plaza, where it is located, is reopened.
    Evans said there was a "considerable amount" of damage to the restaurant. She could not say where exactly inside the blast occurred.
    "Please understand that this investigation is in its early stages and we are doing our best to share what information as it becomes available."

    Police officers have cordoned off part of a residential area and field not far from the restaurant.
    Officers were seen photographing a number of footprints left in a patch of soil as well as a pair of gloves. While it's unclear if the footprints are connected to the bombing, police appear to be treating them as evidence.
    'Not the Mississauga I know'

    Mississauga Mayor Bonnie Crombie expressed support for the victims.
    "My thoughts and prayers are with the victims. I'm thankful that there were no fatalities.
    "This is certainly not anything you would expect to happen in Mississauga, not my Mississauga. This is not the Mississauga I know."
    Crombie said it was a "heinous" crime.

    Emergency crews were called to the restaurant at about 10:30 p.m. on Thursday. (Tony Smyth/CBC)

    "Certainly, the people who have done this need to answer for their crimes and need to be brought to justice."
    Restaurant calls bombing 'horrific' and 'sad'

    In a statement on Facebook, Bombay Bhel restaurant condemned the bombing.
    "It was an extremely horrific and sad incident that happened at our Hwy 10 location yesterday evening. We want to thank you for all of your support and well wishes, especially to the families that were affected," it reads.
