Extra, Extra: Bedbug Cases On TTC Confirmed, Ontario Human Rights Commission Cracks Down On Sexist Dress Codes, and Richmond Hill’s Own Donald Trump

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

  • Remember that time the TTC tried to quell your fears of bedbugs on its vehicles? LOL, JK. CTV obtained documents that confirmed 12 cases of bedbug infestations on the TTC since 2014, “including one case where seven buses were infested at the same time,” the report reads. Public Health Ontario says bedbugs in public areas rarely spread to people, but that surely won’t stop us from scratching on our commutes home tonight.
  • On the heels of a CBC Marketplace investigation, the Ontario Human Rights Commission wants to end sexist dress codes that discriminate against women and transgender workers. The commission released a policy position paper today, stating that employees should not have to dress in sexualized ways to attract clientele. And on International Women’s Day, the move couldn’t be more fitting.
  • Call him Donald Duck: a Richmond Hill mallard is drawing comparisons to Donald Trump for its coif that rivals the presidential hopeful’s cotton candy-textured mop. Photographed by locals, the duck is sporting a head full of fuzz, apparently thanks to a naturally occurring genetic mutation. Looks like Trump isn’t the only quack around these days.
