Is it still shocking if you’re not surprised? It’s been revealed that former police chief Julian Fantino’s special task force on police misconduct was most likely formed only to avoid a full-scale public inquiry. It’s all spelled out in a 2001 report that’s being labeled “a blueprint for how to conceal from the public the malfeasance and the corruption that had been going on in the [Toronto police service].”
Golly. Another report confirms that neighborhood to neighborhood, green space, public safety, the availability of public transportation and proportion of income spent on housing all have an impact on lifelong health. Affluent neighborhoods house healthier people overall. Who’d ‘a thunk?
Don’t expect your weekly bingo scratch card to close the gap between you and your vivacious healthy friend from Rosedale, though. Fraud problems at the Ontario Lottery also extend to scratch cards.
A couple of neighborhoods to avoid as you downsize those dreams:
