Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Remember “Puente de Luz,” that fancy new pedestrian bridge at CityPlace that had its grand opening last week, complete with an appearance by Chile’s ambassador to Canada? It’s closed already, on City orders, because of “deficiencies.”
- This guy, who made a Halloween get-up that resembles OCADU’s Sharp Centre for Design, is the best. Even the tie is perfect. Well done.
- The TTC board finally has some citizen members. The Star knows who some of them are.
- The Post has some of the best/worst pictures of Hurricane Sandy–related destruction in Toronto that we’ve seen yet.
- Meanwhile, the TTC is offering assistance to beleaguered transit officials in New York City, who have far worse Sandy-related problems to cope with.
- Matt Elliot has done the math and figured out that there were a lot fewer lobbyists registering to talk to City officials before Mayor Rob Ford came to power. This could be a meaningless correlation. On the other hand, maybe not.
- Remember Stephen Dulmage, Toronto Public Library’s weirdest and most rabidly conservative ex–board member? It appears he applied for the post after being discovered in a Starbucks line by Mayor Rob Ford’s ex–press secretary, Adrienne Batra. Makes sense.
- And what does it take to build a neighbourhood that’s conducive to trick-or-treating? Spacing has the answers.
