Extra, Extra: Buying Groceries, Privatizing Transit, and Resident Evil

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

  • Resident Evil: Retribution had its theatrical launch last week, and if some of the scenes look vaguely familiar, it might be because they were shot in the Port Lands—specifically, at the Hearn Generating Station. Set decorators had a field day turning the site into a Soviet military fortress, and we slipped in to shoot some of their handiwork when they were filming last November. The full gallery is right here.
  • This morning the Toronto Star broke the news that Metrolinx won’t be allowing the TTC to run the city’s new light rail lines, the first of which (on Eglinton) is now under construction, and will instead be seeking a private partner to operate them. In response, TTCriders has started a letter-writing campaign calling on concerned residents to “say ‘no’ to privatization.”
  • OpenFile went exploring in Toronto’s Food Terminal, which is hosting a special one-day-only, open-to-the-public festival on Saturday.
