Extra, Extra: Disappearing TTC Stops, Cannibal Rats, and Justin Bieber

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

  • Could the TTC be poised to take your local bus or streetcar stop away? Possibly—but don’t panic quite yet: according to Sean Marshall, some “stop rationalization” might not be such a bad thing.
  • There might be an unmanned 38-year-old cruise ship—named after the first Soviet cinema star—headed straight for the coast of Britain or Ireland. There might be Canadian rats on board. And those Canadian rats might be cannibals.
  • This country has produced many headline-worthy events (see “cannibal-rat ghost ship,” above): some are, in fact, so momentous, so attention-grabbing, so very much about Justin Bieber, that they have the power to preempt items about, say, the NSA’s domestic spying practices.

CORRECTION: January 25, 2014, 10:00 AM This post originally stated that the ship might be headed for Britain or England; in fact, the ship might be on its way to Britain or Ireland.

    England is part of Britain, so referring to the two as separate places isn’t quite right.
