In September, 2012 there were 72,969 households with active applications on the waiting list for community housing in Toronto [PDF]. Of those, 22,688 are households with dependents, and 22,420 are households with seniors.

Toronto Cemetery Sojourns: Mount Hope Cemetery

Toronto Cemetery Sojourns: Richview Memorial Cemetery

The mock graveyards decorating residential lawns this Halloween bear little resemblance to Toronto’s real cemeteries, which, actually, are full of life.

Duly Quoted: Mayor Rob Ford and Integrity Commissioner Janet Leiper
