The gravy train was intercepted by police at Queen’s Park.

Toronto Police Service responded to calls of a suspicious package that had been dropped off at Ontario’s capital – but it turned out to be a packet of gravy.

The incident occurred around 11:30 am on Tuesday, after police were called to the Ontario legislature to investigate reports of a suspicious package. 

Portions of the building were evacuated as a precautionary measure on the possibility that the package contained explosive material, rather the base for a succulent sauce.

An officer with the explosives unit ultimately determined that the package contained nothing more than powdered gravy.

Toronto police believe the package was intended to be a joke and possibly connected to a gag made by former interim Ontario Liberal Party leader John Fraser, who sent Premier Doug Ford a can of gravy last week. 

Fraser’s gift was a nod to Ford’s political talking point about ending the Liberals’ “gravy train” of spending. 

However, there is no concrete evidence of a connection between the two incidents.
