Extra, Extra: Winter to Suck, Bell and Astral to Remain Apart

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

  • Well, the early predictions are in. Surprise, surprise: winter is probably going to be awful.
  • When you’re relaxing in front of your TV or iPad or mobile phone this evening, make sure you crack a beer for the CRTC. They just prevented Bell and Astral Media, two behemoth media conglomerates, from merging into a single, possibly evil, megaconglomerate. The airwaves and internets are safe, for now.
  • More good news: the Bloor Viaduct is 94 years old today. It opened on October 18, 1918. [Via Councillor John Parker]
