Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Toronto-based publisher Pop Sandbox made a video game called Pipe Trouble that tries to teach players about the issues surrounding oil pipelines. In the game, it’s possible for a player’s pipeline to be bombed by angry locals. The Post reports that Premier Kathleen Wynne finds this “somewhat disturbing.”
- Meanwhile, the Sun, predictably, mainly wants to talk about the fact that the game seems to have been made with tax money. This has been an object lesson in the difference between the Sun and every other Toronto paper.
- Darwin, the Ikea monkey, is now the protagonist of a children’s book, written and apparently self-published by his one-time owner (he’s currently at a sanctuary). It’s called Adventures of Darling Darwin: Monkey Mess, and supposedly it’s the first in a series.
- Brad Ross, the TTC’s executive director of corporate communications, just got done doing a Reddit AMA.
