Extra, Extra: Lightboxes, Red Powders, Soon-To-Be-Ex Unions

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

  • Is the TIFF Bell Lightbox a flop? After looking at the venue’s financials, the Globe is leaning toward “yes.”
  • The latest threat to your child’s well-being is, apparently, ground cinnamon. C’mon kids, there must be some powdered substances available at your high schools that have slightly better risk-to-reward ratios. But, um, don’t use them.
  • Yesterday, the Toronto Cyclists Union sent out a letter to inform its membership that there will be a vote, at this year’s annual general meeting, on whether or not to change the organization’s name to “Cycle Toronto.” By dropping the “union”—a loaded word in recessionary times—the TCU’s board thinks they’ll attract new members. Pro-bike activist Dave Meslin isn’t so sure.
