Welcome to February! Here's some morning news with the new month: Kathleen Wynne may or may not have received (but probably did) a ceremonial robe at a prominent Sikh temple in India, a man changes his name to get into politics, and one of the city's foremost (alleged) mob bosses is dead.
The news this fine Saturday morning: recommendations to improve the police force are slow to be fully implemented, a portion of a review on Ken Zucker was falsified but the controversial gender identity doctor will still not be working at CAMH, and Rob Ford is to be docked $900 pay for an inappropriate newsletter ad
