Extra, Extra: Rob Ford’s Sobriety Coach, High Park “Alligator” Capture, and Road Construction

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

  • Rob Ford’s sobriety coach accused of kicking protestor at press conference” is a headline from the Star, and not simply a string of words produced by an absurdity-powered, Rob Ford–headline-generating machine.
  • The “alligator-like creature” that was paddling about in a High Park pond has been captured without incident, in an effort Reptilia’s head zookeeper called “squishy, wet, a little stinky.” The creature was, in fact, a caiman, and it was likely dropped off the park by someone who no longer felt like caring for it and thought that High Park ponds were reasonable places to drop off alligator-like creatures native to Central and South America.
  • The City of Toronto has launched a new web page that lists and provides details about construction projects being undertaken on main roads. We will focus on how useful it is to have this list, rather than on how very useful it would be to have a map.
