Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- The National Post has axed its weekend Toronto section. Postmedia’s financial problems are well known, and so it’s not a stretch to say that cost was most likely a factor.
- The best use of SeeClickFix we’ve seen to date: user Neville Park’s complaint about an upside-down “N” tile on the Dufferin Station subway platform. (It creates “an unsightly gap between the ‘I’ and the ‘N’.”)
- Remember when it came to light that Mayor Rob Ford had hired a former University of Toronto quarterback as a “special assistant,” whose main duty seemed to be helping Ford coach his high school football team? (It was four or five scandals ago. Think back.) That assistant, Andrew Gillis, now appears to be playing for a team in France.
- Did Justin Bieber grab a young fan’s boob, or is the apparent groping in this picture just a trick of perspective? It really looks like his fingers are entwined in the fabric of her shirt, but we just don’t know. This is important stuff, clearly.
