Extra, Extra: TTC Streetcar Evolution Lego-Style, Pinball Clemons Makes His Political Debut, and Warm Weather Is Here To Stay

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

  • Maintaining the city’s transit system isn’t child’s play. But a 24-year-old video editor is using Lego to depict the evolution of Toronto’s streetcars over the years. Trevor Parkins-Sciberras has built models of streetcars—from horse-drawn cars to Bombardier’s flashy new fleet—using a mix of traditional and custom-ordered Lego bricks. Looks like Vaughan’s Legoland is getting a run for its money.
  • Michael “Pinball” Clemons had a lot to say about stuff… and things… at the Ontario Progressive Conservative convention this weekend. In an unpaid address, the Toronto Argonauts executive offered up 45 minutes of incoherent babbling about embracing Liberals, religious revival, and why Canada is like his wife—and not much else, including why he is endorsing the PCs or leader Patrick Brown. So, when is this guy running for office?
  • We haven’t had much of a winter so far this year, and likely won’t at all if predictions from meteorologists come true. Accuweather meteorologist Maggie Johnson says “May-like weather“—with temperatures rising to a high of 17 C this Wednesday—is expected to stick around for the rest of March. Points to Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam for calling an early spring this year despite conflicting predictions in the groundhog world.
