Extra, Extra: Inspirational Speeches, Horrible Gaffes

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • Rob Ford gave an inspirational speech at West Humber Collegiate Institute a couple weeks ago, in which he dispensed practical advice like: “Talk is cheap. So don’t go talking and telling everyone what you’re doing. Just stick to your goal and do it.” (He really seems to adhere to that!) He also advises giving up one’s bus seat “for a lady.” [via Jonathan Goldsbie]
  • Also, in case you haven’t read beyond the city pages today: Justin Trudeau said a very unfortunate thing.
  • According to the Society for News Design, two of the world’s best-designed papers are published right here in Toronto. Congratulations to The Grid and the Post. Too bad there’s no “best website ever” award, because evidently, on the basis of geography alone, Torontoist‘s odds of winning would be pretty good.

CORRECTION, February 14, 5:32 PM: The name of the photographer who took this wonderful photo is “Lindsey” McKague, not “Lindsay.” Nice shot, Lindsey!
