Rob Ford is at least $23,000 richer thanks to his recent online auctions of “memorabilia.” One collector warns that the buyers are unlikely to see a profit from their investment, so here is hoping the person who spent over $16,000 on Ford’s NFL tie really does have that kind of scratch to burn. In the news: A TTC bus driver decides to skip four stops along Lawrence Avenue West for unknown reasons, a dog is hit by a TTC bus in Leaside, the ROM has a new interim director, and a fire at the Grand Hotel.

Six Canadians are still in the running to join the Mars One project. If selected, they could get a one-way trip to Mars to try and establish the first off-planet colony of humans. This sounds pretty amazing, until you remember that MIT studied the project's feasibility and learned that the life expectancy could be as short as 68 days. In the news: major flooding at an apartment building near Yonge and Eglinton, longer rush-hour wait times as the new streetcars are put in service, and the (possible) end of Bay and Bloor's scramble crossing.

The TTC leprechaun was reportedly arrested at Pape Station yesterday when he refused to remove his bike from a bus after being informed by the driver that it was full and he would be unable to board. Sadly, he was not wearing a derby hat of any kind. In the news: a new pregnancy clinic in Thorncliffe Park, the community benefit agreement of the Eglinton Crosstown, no snow tires for Toronto police or the TTC, and comparing the Union Pearson Express to airport shuttles around the world.

If you’ve ever been lost in the maze that is the PATH, you’ll be happy to know that new, easier-to-use directional signage and maps are coming to the system in time for the Pan Am Games. Google is also developing a way for the PATH to be listed on Google Maps. In other news: Median income in Toronto is on the decrease while it sees gains elsewhere across the country, a new general manager for the CNE, no new chair for the Police Services Board, and a possible strike at York University.
