Newsstand: December 22, 2014

Even as we finish buying presents and look forward to a few hard-earned days off, the world keeps turning and things keep happening. Many of those things are terrible and heartbreaking. In the news: 14-year-old Amaria Diljohn was struck and killed by a TTC bus, the overhaul of Nathan Phillips Square hits some (possibly permanent) snags, and a new program helps women gain their footing after leaving abusive relationships.

Weekend Newsstand: December 20, 2014

Stephen Harper hasn't met with Kathleen Wynne in over a year, and yet he found time to meet with Mayor John Tory less than two weeks after Tory took office. How about that. Some more morning news: Corrections Canada rejects the cornerstone recommendation from the Ashley Smith inquest, Ontario doctors have some new rules to follow, John Tory meets the prime minister, and racial disparity in foster care creates waves.

In case you were wondering, if ever confronted with the choice, Mayor John Tory would pick fighting a gorilla over a bear. What about you? In less outlandishly hypothetical news: the environmental assessment meeting for the Billy Bishop airport expansion plans draws a hostile crowd, a group of seniors allege they were kicked out of a club because of Giorgio Mammoliti, a possible Go Transit fare hike, and Brampton mayor Linda Jeffrey wants to lower her salary.
