  • Libraries are gussied up for Pride. Buses have gotten fancy for Pride. Crosswalks, too, are boasting rainbows. And it appears that Bike Share Toronto, too, has joined in the celebration.
  • Rob Ford still competitive after seven-week absence” reads the title of a Toronto Star article about a recent poll, which puts Ford at 27 per cent—good for second place behind Olivia Chow, who’s sitting at 34 per cent. We weren’t really expecting that the phrase “seven-week absence” would be the one to follow “Rob Ford still competitive after”—but we suppose there wasn’t room to list all the other things (“Rob Ford still competitive after seven-week absence, crack-smoking, shocking videos, misogyny, racism, homophobia, probable drunk-driving, etc.”).
  • He is peppy and rabble-rousing, and drew our attention to the existence and components (both of which are regrettable) of “pink slime.” He is Jamie Oliver, and soon you will be able to dine at premium-casual restaurants bearing his name, because he is poised to bring his chain of premium-casual restaurants to Canada.
