Extra, Extra: Candidate Announcements, Candidate Font Explosions, and Proof of Rehab

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

  • Progressive Conservative leader Tim Hudak announced today that, if he becomes premier on June 12, he’s prepared to cut 100,000 public sector jobs. Mayoral candidate Olivia Chow announced today that, if she’s elected mayor on October 27, she will work to improve pedestrian safety. We are not political soothsayers, but we are willing to bet one of those announcements will go over better with civil servants.
  • For his part, mayoral candidate John Tory would like to bring more music to Toronto. Music … and also fonts. He would clearly like to bring more fonts to Toronto as well.
  • Doug Ford promised that he would be providing proof today that his brother Rob is in rehab and not hanging about in Tim Hortons and changing his clothes. He has not yet provided this proof, apparently because he has been distracted by persistent calls from the media.
