Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Toronto has a pretty dedicated contingent of rooftopping photographers, and the best known of them is Tom Ryaboi. Today on 500px, he discusses the photo that launched his career, which he posted on Flickr one year ago today.
- Moving elephants—like the ones in the Toronto Zoo, who will soon be relocating to a sanctuary in California—is no easy task. One element: getting the elephants used to their travelling crates. The Star takes a closer look at the process.
- Toronto’s 2012 cycling map is out. Notable by its absence: Sterling Road. Sterling appeared on the map in previous years, as a recommended street for cycling (though it has no marked lane), and as a connector between other routes. A cyclist was killed at the corner of Sterling and Dundas West in November.
