It's a nice cool Monday after that humid weekend, so put on some pants and enjoy it. In the news this morning: Laureen Harper was stung by a bee, milk bags may soon be replaced by milk jugs, and the TTC won't move to distance-based fares.

The weather calls for rain this weekend, so stay inside and on the internet. Here's some weekend news: A local business owner makes a statement about the Israel-Palestine conflict, mulberries are an overlooked urban treat, and Annaleise Carr ends her swim across Lake Erie.
It's going to be a blustery, rainy weekend, so settle in and catch up on the news. A squirrel is pretending to run for mayor, MPPs living close to the city are claiming Toronto accommodation allowance to avoid commuting, and a 16-year-old attempts to swim across Lake Erie.
The weekend was jam-packed with news from all over the world. Here's some local flavour. The provincial government wants to increase the aviation fuel tax, a factory in the Junction Triangle is upsetting residents, and the provincial Liberals are playing hardball with a First Nations community.
It's been a long, eventful week. Why not relax with some local news? Drake pitches a new nickname for Toronto on his new album, John Tory wades into the debate over renewing police Chief Bill Blair's contract, and a not-for-profit daycare in North York may be forced to close.
It's over—Germany has won the World Cup. Most North Americans can go back to ignoring soccer, while true fans can go back to feeling more cosmopolitan than everyone else. In the news: a Canadian filmmaker was injured in a World Cup protest in Brazil, a rare falcon was born at Lakeridge Hospital, and a local businessman faces deportation after 16 years in Canada.
What will the weekend bring? Another shirtless horde, perhaps? One thing is for certain: by Monday morning, the world will know who won the World Cup. And that's really all that matters, right? In the news: the Fords come out swinging against the Eglinton redevelopment project, ombudsman Fiona Crean may stay on despite her harsh criticism of Ford, and the TDSB is getting—or staying—litigious.
It's a dreary Monday, so here's some news to take your mind off the rain. Olivia Chow has a new affordable housing plan, one-third of Ontario residents want Andrea Horwath to step down, and a local parachute school has had three fatalities in a year.
Let's take a little break from the Brothers Ford and see what else is happening in the city this morning, shall we? Police broke up a fight in Mississauga between Israeli and Palestinian sympathizers, Woodbridge residents love donating to Toronto council candidates, and laneway homes might be one way to ameliorate our housing crisis.
It's the end of Pride and the break in your long weekend (if you're one of the unlucky people who has to go in to work today). In the news: 22 Digital Dreams attendees ended their Saturday night in hospital, recent meat recalls affect Ontario, and Olivia Chow wants to set up a music office.
How is everyone enjoying the weekend? Great! That sounds great. In the news today: a high school on U of T property may have to find a new home, allies donate blood in place of gay and bisexual men, and former Afghan interpreters graduate high school.
The long weekend is upon us, as well as the wrap-up of this year's Pride festivities. Get out your sunscreen and get ready to party. In the news: Premier Wynne is continuing with her public pension proposal, transit spending may be spent on GO rather than the TTC, and a Canadian was the first overall pick in the NBA draft.
Hearing about the 30-degree heat and 80-per-cent humidity that World Cup players are dealing with really puts local weather into perspective, doesn't it? Anyway, here's some Monday news for you. City officials were unhappy about the province's plan to provide food aid to citizens during last winter's ice storm, a U of T student has been arrested in Tajikistan, and WorldPride is an economic boon to Toronto businesses.
How is everyone's World Cup team doing so far? Either far worse or a little better than expected seems to be the norm. Good luck. In the news today: David Soknacki's radical reimagining of downtown, Wi-Fi on the TTC (kind of), and no e-payment on Toronto ferries until the fall.
Whew, what a weekend. If anyone had actually watched the MMVAs, this would have been a good place to make a joke, but it doesn't seem that anyone did. On to the news! The World Naked Bike Ride took place Saturday, the riding of Thornhill went back to the PCs after the official vote count, the WSIB is spying on injured workers, and Toronto's garbage prayers might be answered.
Hockey is officially over! Congratulations L.A. Kings. Now leave us alone because the World Cup is already on. There's too much overlap between winter and summer sports these days. In the news: voter turnout increased (slightly) for the first time in years, the Hells Angels lost their Toronto clubhouse for good, TDSB chair Chris Bolton has resigned, and the Toronto Airport Express will stop running this fall.
Friday the 13th, a full moon, a new Liberal majority government—it's already a jam-packed day and it's barely begun! In the news: Kathleen Wynne is victorious, the Sam the Record Man sign may be moving, and London Mayor Joe Fontana awaits his trial verdict today.
It's Monday and there is, as always, news to be read: Ontario's privacy commissioner wants Toronto police to stop sharing information about suicide attempts with law enforcement across the country, a TTC driver kept two wheelchair-using passengers on a bus for an hour, and fringe-party candidates want your vote.
