Your Toronto 2014 Issue Navigator
How the candidates compare on some of the city's biggest issues.
It's Monday! No applause? No wild cheers? Fine, I'm going back to bed too. But first the news: the elephants made it to California all right; homelessness appears, shockingly, to be low on Mayor Ford's agenda; nobody wants a casino in their backyard; and the mayor says his radio show is all about reaching out to the public, man.
Does anyone else get the hook from R.E.M.'s "Everybody Hurts" stuck in their head when they're in physical pain? Just me? Now this headache is lonely as well as painful. In today's news: Toronto is almost the most reputable city in the world, according to reputation experts the Reputation Institute; the stock exchange closed high, which means SELL EVERYTHING YOU OWN; Feral Cat Awareness Week is happening, so be aware that there are adorable sad cats that you should never touch without a trained expert nearby; and Premier Wynne is concerned about how the Canada-EU trade deal will impact Ontario.
How are you feeling today? I'm too ill to deal with life right now, thanks for asking. In the news: Doug Holyday urges the provincial government to back city council's subway plan, the discussion about bike lanes on Bloor Street is back on (sort of), a middle school bans junk food in brown bag lunches, a Toronto man's legal case over whether doctors can terminate life support rests with the Supreme Court, and lots of road closures across the city this weekend.
In today's Urban Planner: the Big City Improv Festival brings lots of comedians to town, Fort York leads visitors on creepy after-dark tours, and a double feature of one-act plays by Laura Cockburn-Tulk.
