Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- If you want to attend Arcade Fire’s March 13 show at the ACC, you’d better have proper attire. The band is apparently going to impose a dress code on audiences during its upcoming North American tour.
- The Star‘s Christopher Hume has an argument in favour of the Mirvish/Gehry proposal for King Street West. But what about the heritage warehouses?
- Does Mayor Rob Ford know a single person without a history of drug involvement? It turns out that the man who is believed to be Ford’s new personal trainer was convicted in the U.S. for selling steroids.
- Also interesting: David Price, the mayor’s logistics director, no longer has a job at City Hall. Price, who was Ford’s high-school football coach and a close family friend, had famously vague job duties. He reportedly earned $130,000 a year.
- And in case this is all starting to seem like a harmless sideshow, consider this: Bloomberg reports that Ford’s scandals seem to be driving up the City’s borrowing costs.
- What’s the solution? Spacing‘s John Lorinc thinks we should take Doug Ford’s advice and hold an early election.
