  • Apparently something not great is supposed to happen with the weather tonight?
  • Worse by far: every year, dozens of homeless people die on Toronto’s streets. The Grid‘s David Topping has put together an infographic that breaks down the deaths (the recorded ones, at any rate) by year. There are a couple of other graphics on his blog.
  • Today, at the Toronto Sportsmen’s Show, Mayor Rob Ford met some animal friends. Here’s a video of him acting all uncomfortable around an owl. The owl vote is effectively lost to him now. [Via Jackson Proskow]
  • This is how Vice magazine explains, to its readers, the futility of fighting Toronto’s condo boom: “To stop it, you’d have to stop capitalism itself, which is a discussion for another day. Besides, it would be even weirder if a neighbourhood stayed the same forever, and as depressing as those dudes who peaked in high school and are still wearing the same stupid t-shirt a decade later.”
