Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Yarn bombing Toronto pay phones might be a great crime prevention strategy. Who’s going to want to set up a drug deal using something that looks like it came from a Junction craft fair?
- A tiger who acted in Ang Lee’s film adaptation of Life of Pi apparently lived at the Bowmanville Zoo, and is apparently now unable to share in the joy of the movie’s Oscar success because it’s dead.
- The 501 Queen streetcar now has its own unofficial Twitter account. “I’m the Queen 501 street car,” says its bio, “and I always try my best.”
- Today, the Toronto Star brings the full force of its publicity machine to bear on the son of a bitch who’s standing in the way of, uh…50/50 draws at hockey games. Really? That’s all this guy did to earn himself a scathing write-up in the country’s biggest paper?
