Extra, Extra: Strikes, Maple Syrup, and Ponies

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

  • Elementary teachers at eight public school boards—including Toronto’s—held a one-day strike today, leading to many instances of scenes like the one pictured above. Kids: We hope you got lots of video gaming and cartoon watching in. Parents: We hope you’re okay.
  • Pitcher R.A. Dickey is joining the Toronto Blue Jays in 2013, and apparently he’s really, really into Star Wars, to the extent that he warms up to the Imperial March.
  • Police have arrested some people believed to be responsible for stealing about a tenth of Quebec’s “strategic maple syrup reserve.”
  • Soul singer Jarvis Church staged an impromptu show on the subway a little while ago, and the video of it is pretty great.
  • But why can’t we have ponies on the subway, like Berlin?

    “The people of the city have spoken loud and clear. They want ponies folks. They want ponies, ponies, ponies…”

    They’re just putting ponies on subways in Berlin because they’re jealous our Ikea’s have monkeys.
