- Without a steady supply of memes, the internet would certainly die (or at least have far fewer memes), which is obviously why Mayor Rob Ford spent part of his day at Spadina Museum‘s “Dressing for Downton: Costumes from Downton Abbey” exhibit. Here are a couple of photos. If Rob Ford has not already been edited into the show in some manner or another, we’ll know it’s the end of days for the interweb.
When we fact-checked Rob Ford’s speech at the Economic Club, we promised that we would fact-check at least one major policy speech from each major mayoral candidate. Fair is fair, after all. So we looked forward to Karen Stintz’s speech to the Toronto Board of Trade last week; it was, we hoped, going to be the equivalent of Ford’s speech (right down to the audience).
We really should have known better.
Happy Friday! Don't forget to set your clock forward on Sunday! Because if you do forget, the Daylight Saving Time monster will get you in your sleep. In the news today: Trump Tower may soon be raining glass; an Ontario teacher who forced a student to eat a gross banana is no longer a teacher; and Line 9, the pipeline project, is one step closer to reality.
Happy birthday, Toronto! I didn’t get you anything because you’re so hard to shop for, so please accept these news headlines in your honour: The Buffalo Bills won’t be coming to Toronto this year, Josh Colle thinks bus and streetcar service should be free during overnight cold weather alerts, a laptop stolen from Etobicoke General had personal info from over 5,000 patients on it, and a Toronto Tim Hortons dished out $200 in free wares thanks to a considerate customer.
