  • 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.

  • More good news: the Bloor Viaduct is 94 years old today. It opened on October 18, 1918. [Via Councillor John Parker]
