Police were called to Stanley St. Saturday morning after a pedestrian's cane was mistaken for a rifle.
A witness, who asked to remain anonymous, told CTV News that numerous officers surrounded the pedestrian with their weapons drawn.
The SPVM has confirmed that the individual was not in possession of a weapon; rather, they were carrying a walking cane.
This is a developing story.

With the federal government set to cancel a plethora of COVID-19 support programs on Saturday, business owners and employees say they’re worried over how they’re going to survive.
Programs like the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy (CEWS), the Canada Emergency Rent Subsidy (CERS) and the Canada Recovery Benefit (CRB) are set to be replaced with new measures in their place.
Though Canada’s devastated tourism and service industry, still reeling from the COVID-19 pandemic, continues to recover, business owners and employees say that those lifelines are the only things keeping them afloat.
[...]
David Macdonald, a senior economist for the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, wrote that as many 1.5 million people could be directly impacted by the replacement of those programs — most of whom won’t have another source of income or support.
Of that number, about 900,000 workers would lose support from the CRB’s eligibility and income cut, while over 640,000 workers could see their jobs in jeopardy over the CERS and CEWS cuts.
“The real elephant in the room is CRB support for self-employed workers,” said Macdonald. “While several of the other programs have seen significant decline in take-up recently, the CRB has not.”
Those interested in the CRB’s replacement, the CWLB, would only be eligible for it once a province or city imposes a COVID-19 lockdown, Macdonald wrote.
“At this point, there doesn’t seem to be any place in Canada under lockdown and so there would be no one eligible for the CWLB at the time of writing.”

Otters are having a racy impact on the sex lives of seagrass, ecologists have found.
When the playful animals dig for clams in the meadows they leave a pockmarked “moonscape” behind them. These have lots of craters and pits and spur seagrass on to have more sex.
By disturbing the seagrass roots, otters encourage the plants to flower at a higher rate, a new study in Science journal shows.
Surprisingly, sea otters influence seagrass even more than the conditions or size of a seagrass meadow.

A great example of how one species creates conditions for another to flourish and shows how the removal of one species can affect a whole ecosystem. As the article points out the sea grasses can reproduce asexually but this produces genetically identical plants which could all succumb to a disease should the right one come along. Sexual reproduction leads to more genetic variety which gives a better chance of survivors should the aforementioned disease strike. This is good for the marine communities that call the sea grass meadows home.
Oh, and sea grasses remove carbon from the atmosphere up to thirty times faster than the rainforest.
