Extra, Extra: City Hall Hockey Gold, Flooded Theatres, and Rainy Toronto

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

  • City councillors took a break from politics today to take in some of the Canada vs. U.S.A. gold medal game in women’s hockey. It’s hard to blame them, as much of the country took a break today to take in the Canada vs. U.S.A. gold medal game in women’s hockey.
  • All winter, water mains have been breaking and causing general wet messiness. Streets and basements have been flooded—and now a local theatre finds itself under water. A water main break outside the Storefront Theatre on Bloor Street West deposited seven feet of water and muck in the venue’s basement. The current show has been suspended, and a fund has been set up to collect donations.
  • That reminds us: there’s a rainfall warning currently in effect (because obviously something had to take the place of the extreme cold weather alerts), and the City’s public works department is requesting that residents help reduce the chance of flooding by clearing ice and debris from storm drains. If you’re going to do that, you should probably do it soon, because on top of all the rain, it’s possible we’ll also see snow, freezing rain, and ice pellets. If our winter luck holds and all of that arrives, you’ll probably want to be back inside already, rewatching the Canada vs. U.S.A. gold medal game in women’s hockey.
