Please provide the name of and link to the source where you learned Balkissoon left Queen's Park because of a scandal.

There was never any explanation given for his resignation. Only earlier this month did he say family was the reason he's now out of provincial politics. There could be more to this story, but so far I haven't heard from any media outlets saying he was involved in a scandal.

Although I have met a few famous people over the years the one I remember the most was Vanilla Ice, not for anything special but because I was at a truck stop in Virginia and stood right next to him. We were talking to each other and I had no idea who it was until afterwards...

Does Sherman Wong count as a famous person? :P

Off the top of my head, I've met Jesse Tyler Ferguson (Mitch from ABC's Modern Family) near my school once (he apparently lives around the area), Bill de Blasio, the current mayor of New York City, and Governor of New York Andrew Cuomo when he was giving a press conference in Midtown.

Earlier today I was riding the new Q-Line in Detroit and happened to notice WJBK Fox 2 reporter Ryan Ermanni wrapping up a segment for a report on the route's opening weekend success as it stopped at the Amsterdam Street station heading south.

At around the 00:57 mark in the video in this link, you will even hear the very same cheers that I heard when the other passengers noticed Ermanni doing this report.
