  • The Bixi bike-share program, faltering and near death, was recently saved to bike another day by the City—and next spring, it will be officially under the control of the Toronto Parking Authority. Over the course of the next year, the City intends to bring the number of bike stations up to 102, and there’s a website that will help you tell the City just where you think those stations should be.
  • What will the Toronto of the Future be like? Will it involve flood waters and various kinds of natural growth and industrial decay? If it does, we at least hope it looks a little something like this.
  • The Sun reports that “Mayor Rob Ford offered to do a urine test for Conrad Black.” If you want to learn more about this offer, and watch as two titans of Canadian news-making and scandal-creating discuss being news-making and scandalous, you should tune in to tonight’s episode of Black’s VisionTV show, airing at 9 p.m.
  • And because it’s never too early to start supporting a nominee who has not yet formally declared his or her candidacy…George Smitherman and director Deepa Mehta have announced they will be supporting Olivia Chow in the upcoming mayoral contest she has not yet committed to contesting.
