It's been days—days!—since anyone was escorted out of a mayoral debate or yelled a racial slur at a prominent local politician on TV. What a quiet week, right? Here's some news to get you to the weekend: James Forcillo will face both second-degree and attempted murder charges in Sammy Yatim’s death, area hospitals are connecting a mini baby boom with last year’s ice storm, and you should never trust a man in a bright green shirt on the Pape bus.

After we get through today, the weather promises to be warm for the rest of the week, so get all your work done today and enjoy the last of the summer. In the news this morning: 3,000 people marched in the Toronto portion of Sunday's global climate protest, Olivia Chow returns to her progressive roots, the PC leadership race is (kind of) off to a start, and the Word on the Street festival happened despite rain.

JFL42 launched this week. Is everybody laughing? If we don't laugh enough they'll sic the Just For Laughs Gags crew on the city, so everybody start enjoying yourselves. In the news today: John Tory takes a strong stand on Queers Against Israeli Apartheid, a U of T professor wins an international award, eat dinner to fix Toronto on October 7, and quit flushing so-called flushable wipes.

Last night voters in Scotland turned out in historic numbers and voted to stay in the U.K. But just because they didn't vote for independence, doesn't mean the story's over. There will likely be some major changes to the U.K. in the coming months and years. In more local news: Liberty Village residents are crowdfunding a new bus line, Toronto EMS will soon change its name, the Rob Ford musical opened last night, and if your pint of beer isn't 19.5 ounces, you can complain to your bartender for breaking the law.

Well, the stars are gone. Except for those few Canadian stars who hang around Toronto more or less year-round, but somehow their lustre just doesn't quite match the Brangelinas and the Kate Winslets who descend on the city in their designer gowns for a week at a time. In the (regular-people) news: a look at the man who will design the development replacing Honest Ed's, Andrea Horwath is fighting for her career, and the Fords weren't popular at a Sunday mayoral debate.

It's TIFF time and we've all got celeb fever. Get downtown and snap some selfies with whomever you find; you never know, they might be famous someday soon. In the news this morning: Pearson Airport employees will speak to Metrolinx about the Union-Pearson transit fare, Ford has been subpoenaed to testify in a case against Sandro Lisi, the Star is trying to unseal documents about a wild night Ford had in April, and a local mogul proves that even while being charitable, rich people have more fun than the rest of us.

It's going to be a hot one today, maybe even record-breaking—if the temperature passes 32 C, it will be the warmest Sept. 5 on record—so stay hydrated (or, preferably, somewhere air-conditioned). In the news this morning: on transit Toronto struggles to keep up with the pack, Canada will see a flu vaccine shortage this fall, and the TDSB has been shut out of expected condo fees that would pay for a construction backlog.
