Not many a day comes along when we can eat duck-topped pancakes, so savour Saturday. In the news: Maple Leafs avoid the axe, your greatest elevator fears come true, new cycling facilities for City Hall, and some bad math.
Friday! What else is there to say about that? In the news: Wynne won't set a deadline for auto insurance cuts, a Hamilton-area man remains missing, there are a lot of rich people in Toronto, and the Leafs had better win tonight.
It's not every day you get a Thursday like this...really more like every week, to be honest. In the news: city council gets more than it bargained for in its Homeric transit expansion debate, a casino debate will probably be put off for now, the City highlights the worst intersections for traffic, and a burned playground will be rebuilt.
It is World Red Cross and Red Crescent Day, so get out there and perform a large-scale humanitarian effort. In the news: Moving the gas plants was McGuinty’s idea, teacher out of classroom for posting adult sex-ed brochures, council decides to debate against the will of Ford, and the Scarborough Hospital is playing deep cuts on their recent tour.
The sun keeps shining! What is this awesome weather we are having? Could it be...spring? In the news: Ford gets shirty with councillors who support a debate on transit funding, McGuinty is set to testify about cancelling power plants, Porter could be on the hook for a report on airport expansion, and an OCAD student has a proposal to prevent bike theft.
We have something very original to say. Happy Star Wars Day! May the 4th be with you! If anyone else uses that today, just remember, you heard it here first. Also, the news: Don't bet on a $100-million casino hosting fee just yet, a new coalition opposing jets at Billy Bishop has taken off, Mayor Rob Ford may soon become an artist's muse, marathon runners to pay their respects to their Boston brethren, and subway disruptions (but what else is new?).
