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

  • The Maple Leafs are evidently aware that their PR hasn’t been stellar lately (or, really, ever in recent memory). Will a few fan-appreciation promotions help heal the rift between the team and its fans? In any case, the Leafs are handing out 1,000 tickets to their home opener, so at least recipients of those will be happy.
  • Chris Spence, the now-former TDSB education director, ruined himself by repeatedly plagiarizing the writing of others. Now, a Star op-ed argues that Spence’s fall is an affront to all “blacks and minorities who have worked hard to attain success.” Ouch.
  • Kitchener is pretty excited about the impending launch of BlackBerry 10. Of course they are. It’s not like another international tech giant is going to headquarter itself in Waterloo if RIM folds.
  • The Loblaws at Maple Leaf Gardens got some international attention today. Tourists take note. [Via Derek Flack]
