  • Want to get your hands on some “substandard and potentially hazardous” Viagra? You might be out of luck—as part of an investigation involving the smuggling and sale of counterfeit merchandise, Toronto police have just seized $6.5 million worth of fake goods and laid multiple charges.
  • Does your TV feel like a lump of useless metal (and whatever else TVs are made of) now that the Ford brothers are no longer around to make it come alive? Well, your days of watching that one episode of Ford Nation again and again might soon be over: the Ford Nation YouTube show is on its way.
  • Rob Ford might find it difficult to promote his new YouTube show (or his mayoralty, or his fitness regimen, or his complete sobriety) south of the border, though. The Star notes that even without a conviction for drug use, Ford could be denied entry to the U.S..
  • Rob might not make it past the American border, but he did make it to Centennial Park in Etobicoke today to take in this year’s provincial high-school football finals, which saw the Don Bosco Eagles take on the Cardinal Newman Cardinals. No word yet on exactly how overjoyed the Toronto Catholic School Board was to see the most well-known former coach of the Eagles in the stands.
  • And if those last three items made you realize you have gone too long without fresh insight into the Ford scandal, you can always watch Robyn Doolittle, Michael Cooke, Andrew Coyne, and Greg McArthur say interesting things about it for a good hour.

    Are you sure the Viagra was fake? (the picture shows Cialis, another ED medication) or does Big Pharma just want people to believe all generic ED pills are dangerous to protect their profits?

      I was actually in China (which is where I guarantee these goods are from) when fake Viagra was being sold all over the country. Trust me, you don’t want to mess around with counterfeit products from China.
