Sam Sniderman (aka. The Record Man) wants the Sam’s building to be sold to Ryerson University. Unfortunately, this does not comply with the conspiracy to turn every store on Yonge Street into a discount shoe outlet or nail salon. Sorry.
Toronto couldn’t handle a dirty bomb. According to a federal study, “the explosion of a small dirty bomb near the CN Tower would spew radioactivity over four square kilometres, resulting in mass anxiety, a rush on medical facilities and an economic toll of up to $23.5 billion.” We know it’s not funny, but Torontoist can’t say “dirty bomb” without giggling a little.
Police are investigating seven suspicious fires in the West-end, all of which were started between 4:20 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. this morning.
The kids aren’t alright. 108 Toronto schools will stay open over the summer and offer youth programs to keep kids out of the streets and off huffing nitrous oxide from plastic bags.
In related news, the Toronto Police Service has hired 100 youths aged 14 to 17 for a “youth in policing” summer program which launched today.
A troop of rare, grey-shanked doucs (it’s a kind of monkey) have been found in Vietnam. Torontoist also can’t say “grey-shanked doucs” without giggling a little.
Grey-shanked doucs. Hee hee!
