Halloween is tomorrow―this means only one more day of having to suffer through that annoying Village People–themed Value Village radio commercial. We may not have costumes, but we sure do have some news for you: The provincial government aims to cap executive salaries at public sector agencies, a Trailer Park Boys actress accuses Jian Ghomeshi of sexual violence, paramedics concerned over lack of Ebola preparedness training are ordered back to work, and a woman is seriously injured after falling onto the 401.

Finally, the day of reckoning has arrived. Our patience has been rewarded, and by this time tomorrow we will have a new mayor, new city council, and nearly four merciful years without municipal campaigning. That alone is a victory. In the news today: CBC has fired Jian Ghomeshi and he claims it's because of his sexual predilections, Doug Ford discloses his donations, and CityNews called the election (last night) for John Tory.

Election, election, election. It's happening Monday and it's probably all you'll hear about until it's over. (You may well hear about it for a while after, but let's pretend while we can that Monday will be the end.) In the news: Cycle Toronto has a plan for the city's biking future, a supporter of Brampton mayor Susan Fennell threw coffee at a reporter, and what the school board elections are all about.

Sometimes, you just have to get right to it. In the news: Parliament will sit today in the wake of the Ottawa shootings, Bill Blair says there is no credible threat of a similar attack in Toronto, Queen’s Park holds a moment of silence to honour the fallen soldier in Ottawa, Doug Ford shares his views on what needs to be done to keep the nation safe, and the identity of the killed soldier is confirmed to be Corporal Nathan Cirillo.

Apparently, a Niagara-on-the-Lake hotel has the greatest restroom in Canada. The porcelain thrones at Shaw Club Hotel and Spa are described as a convergence of “style and radiance.” Given that a public lavatory in Toronto that offers a convergence of functioning plumbing and tolerable odour is a pretty big coup, what would rate as our fine city’s top public potty? In the news: Malala Yousafzai will be made an honorary Canadian citizen, the TDSB has a $3-billion repair backlog, the El Mocambo sign goes up for auction, and Doug Ford meets Michael Dunbar Jr.

A surfer in Hawaii punched a tiger shark who came close to attacking his three sons while they were surfing together over the weekend. That is definitely worth a “#1 Dad” mug. In the news: questionable billboards in Ward 9, nearly half of Torontonians would be willing to pay higher user fees for better recreation services, more than 5,000 Pan Am Games security jobs for students, and fall road closures.
