Canadian Tire has announced that Canadian Tire money is going digital. The company says that the move won’t replace their paper bills, but simply offer an online alternative to collect and redeem rewards. This means that Sandy McTire’s sweet moustache and tam-o'-shanter will live on. In the news: Sarah Thomson and David Soknacki are out of the mayoral race, John Tory widens his lead as he admits that his Smart Track plan will require some tunnelling, former Rob Ford chief of staff Mark Towhey pens a tell-all, and a home collapse in Bedford park leaves one construction worker dead and another injured.

We’re already halfway through TIFF. Have you had an interesting run-in with a celebrity yet? Or do you have any good stories about trying to impersonate a celebrity for your own personal gain? In the news: print media were asked to leave a Rob Ford speech after being invited, an octogenarian has been charged with stunt driving, Vogue Magazine thinks West Queen West is actually so hip it hurts, and a new study on discrimination against homelessness by health care professionals.

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.

Drop whatever you are doing and go look at some photos from Al Pacino’s appearance at the TIFF Gala last night. That man’s hair is a thing of unparalleled beauty. In the news: Olivia Chow supports right-angled curbs for pedestrian safety, Sarah Thomson mulls over dropping out of the mayoral race, parade organizers are on the hook to pay a $14,000 police bill by today, and fewer than 55,000 unemployed people in Toronto actually collect EI.
