Today is Thursday. If you aren't familiar with calendars, have a great start to the week! In the news: the budget chief resigns after the 2013 budget passes, the TDSB names a new acting director, animal rights activists take on the Bowmanville Zoo, and Idle No More protesters take to the British Consulate.
Let's make this a Thursday to remember. No? All right, forget about it. In the news: a casino consultation goes awry, the province seeks to stop a teacher walkout, and the mayor comes out against photo radars.
You know, it's already the third of the month, and what does the word "resolution" really even mean, anyway? In the news: Toronto continues circling around a shark fin ban, the province gets set to impose a new contract on teachers, and the case is all but closed in the city's first homicide of 2013.
Happy back-to-work day, everyone! In the news: yesterday was a good Boxing Day, today is an unfortunate snow day; the City doesn't like people living in laneways; and food banks fall short on donations.
Hey, Thursday: There's a reason no one ever says "TGIT," OK? Remember that. In the news: the TTC has communications issues, teachers' actions land them in trouble, the Ikea monkey saga continues, and more witchcraft.
Guys, it's 12/13/12. That's not going to happen again for, like, a hundred years. In the news: PRESTO cards come with a high cost, councillors bicker over the Gardiner Expressway, the TDSB relents, the mayor muses over different New Year's Levee options, police budget woes, and the strange saga of Darwin the monkey continues.
Who knows what evil lurks in the heart of Thursday? Here's the news: a parent complains about an a cappella O Canada, the TDSB looks at how it might be able to solve its financial problems, and more supernatural con artists bilk people out of their money.
The first rule of Thursday is: you do not make outdated movie references. In the news today: Rob Ford looks to remain in office, elementary school teachers look to take it to the streets, researchers look at a ton of plastic waste in the Great Lakes, and the Danzig Street community looks at a cash donation.
Our Thursday could beat up your Thursday. So there. In the news: more details in the Salvation Army toy theft, TDSB trustees vote against selling off playgrounds, the TTC raises the cost of tokens and metropasses, and police catch a Twitter troll from under his bridge.
Take off that fake beard, Thursday! We all know you're not the end of the week; you're not fooling anyone. In the news: the mayor's libel suit rolls on, the police board says no to a proposed budget increase, a court finds that building owners are not responsible for birds crashing into those buildings, and look out! (There's more falling glass.)
Ever have one of those dreams where you think it's Tuesday, but then it's actually Wednesday? Well it's Thursday now, and you need to start setting an alarm. In the news: the Catholic school board sort of offers to pay for the TTC's buses, the City freezes garbage collection rates, and basketball woes.
Oh, hello, November. It's been a while since we've run into a month with no holidays. In today's news: dogs could go off leash in all City parks, the City could be in a budget bind, and police release a slideshow showing the suspect in last week's Cabbagetown murder.
Fun fact: Thursday rhymes with per se. Think about it. In today's news: it's been two years since Rob Ford was elected mayor, Waterfront Toronto says "no way" to a casino in the Port Lands, Mississauga wants more transit money, Union Station renovation runs behind schedule, and two Supreme Court rulings announced today.
If Thursday had a motto, it would be, "Good things come to those who wait." Let's just try and get through this one, folks. In the news: TTC ridership hits record levels, provincial cuts could drive thousands to homelessness, and the Reference Library gets some funky new study pods.
Here comes another Thursday, forcing itself into your week yet again. In the news: Torontonians debate the merits of a casino in the city, Mel Lastman gives Mayor Rob Ford some advice, and the Port Authority seeks to remedy traffic woes at the island airport.
