Extra, Extra: Crowdfunded Street Furniture, Gross Things to Eat, and Police Wiretaps

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

  • Projexity, a Toronto-based crowdfunding site whose anti-Kensington-Walmart campaign we wrote about a while ago, has just delivered a finished product: a patio for Scadding Court’s Market 707 (otherwise known as “that little food court made of shipping containers”).
  • The Daily Mail‘s article about yesterday’s Drake/Mayor Rob Ford/NBA press conference both steals a line from Torontoist (or at any rate, misattributes it to NOW‘s Jonathan Goldsbie) and calls the Raptors a “baseball team.”
  • Jon Sufrin’s “Eating Gross Things” series, over at Post City, is really great. This week: testicle tartare.
  • And here’s something hopeful to end your Tuesday: some fresh legal precedent means we may get to find out what the police know about Rob Ford’s alleged links to the local drug trade, after all. (But probably not anytime soon.)
