Help! Can Someone Identify This Weed?

This stuff sprang up almost overnight in my lawn. A local by-law
prohibits the use of chemical herbicides, but it is only in a small
patch and won't be too much work to pull out. Area is Southern Ontario
Thanks in advance.

Looks to me like hawkweed. This is a perennial plant whose stems exude a milky sap. A number of species exist and without the actual flowers I can't tell which is which. Leaves are basal, which seems to apply to the plant in your picture. Put "hawkweed" in a search engine and you'll get plenty of references.
