The 2013 Canadian Cup Quidditch Tournament

Grab the nearest broomstick, because the Canadian Cup Quidditch Tournament is making its way to Toronto for the very first time. For those unfamiliar with the sport, Muggle Quidditch is sort of like Rugby, but players play with broomsticks between their legs. Take a stroll down memory lane, and check out a feature we did […]

Christmas Comes to Nathan Phillips Square

Halloween is over, and because it would be a waste of valuable time for us to spend even one day of fall or winter not anticipating a holiday of some kind, Christmas season has already come to Toronto. To be fair, Remembrance Day and Hanukkah would probably both have similarly long buildup periods if they […]

Historicist: Cabbagetown Horatio Alger

He was among the most popular mayors in the city’s history. Some suggested he was its best mayor. R. J. Fleming pulled himself up from austere origins on the strength of hard work and his proclaimed Christian convictions to become a business leader and municipal politician in the late 19th century. Then, in economic collapse, […]

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss. Credit where credit’s due: those Taiwanese news animators are fast. Embedded above, their latest take on the unfolding Mayor Rob Ford saga.

Vandalist: Resurrection

BY: Unknown LOCATION: Queen and Portland streets PHOTO BY: Lisa Dejong FIELD NOTES: There are so many ways to interpret this graffiti. It’s on what appears to be construction hoarding, so it’s probably a piece about the structural transformations that happen behind such walls. One building gets demolished and another one goes up in its […]

Duly Quoted: Rob Ford’s Lawyer, Dennis Morris

“The chief has a duty to report news in a dispassionate fashion. Commenting about his disappointment is not part of his job, with respect, and his so doing puts Mayor Ford at a tremendous disadvantage. I’ve seen the video, it appears to contain what has been reported in the press. You note [Blair] didn’t say, […]

Another Weekend, Another Subway Closure

Relax: This one is relatively minor. Unless you happen to live between Jane and Kipling stations, or have some need to be in that area on Saturday or Sunday. The TTC says that, because of track work, the Bloor-Danforth line will be closed between those two stations starting on Saturday, with normal service to resume […]
