Fans of Toronto crossing guard urge police to 'let her dance'

A Toronto crossing guard who likes to dance while doing her job has been told by police that her fancy footwork could be a distraction to drivers.

The directive to cut out the dancing has upset Kathleen Byers, who says there has never been an incident during her 10 years as a crossing guard.

It has also upset the students at Grove Community School, who are rallying around their well-known crossing guard.
