Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Who says Rob Ford holds a grudge? He very thoughtfully and graciously sent a note to Toronto Life, thanking the magazine for its “50 Most Influential People in the City” issue. Which is pretty decent of him, really, seeing as how Police Chief Bill Blair is number one on that list—because of his role in the Rob Ford crack scandal.
- Would your mother enjoy receiving a Schadenford magnet set in her stocking this Christmas? Perhaps your friend would appreciate a book about civic engagement? Satisfy all your Toronto-related holiday shopping needs at a pop-up shop created by Spacing and Coach House Books.
- The same people who brought us the Oscar-nominated animated short about John Lennon have now created a short animated work in support of the Toronto Public Library. Narrated by author Vincent Lam, this video is recommended for all those who appreciate our library system and/or the sight of small, line-drawn city councillors genuflecting before a small, Rob Ford-filled throne.
- If you stole a “bronze-coloured statue known as Whatsoever You Do“ from a plinth outside the Church of Stephen-in-the-Fields on November 30, the police would like to talk to you. And also, they’d like the statue back, please.
