At Toronto ComiCon, you could buy a stuffed Minion dressed as Batman, Superman, or the Flash. I know this because I held a Minion Superman in my hand. Earlier in the day, I walked past a booth that was selling a laminated art print of a Minion dressed as a Star Wars stormtrooper and a […]
On Sunday evening, NHL action returned to the former Maple Leaf Gardens—sort of. No ticket scalpers stand outside the historic arena that now houses a Loblaws grocery store and Ryerson University’s Mattamy Athletic Centre. Masses of bejerseyed fans aren’t filing into the hulking art deco building at Carlton and Church either. But inside Eggy’s Summit, […]

First-term MPP Ross Whicher hated seeing pornography on the shelves of Toronto convenience stores. The Liberal member of provincial parliament for Bruce would often find magazines such as Kuties Kontinental, Line and Form, Lovlies, and Rogue on magazine racks of cigar stores and newsstands—an apparent violation of the country’s obscenity laws. March 18, 1959, was […]

We all know what yesterday was. Some of you were probably out on the town, cramming as much Guinness, Dropkick Murphys, and Shamrock Shakes into your systems at a rate the guys at Top Gear would say is excessive. Or some of you, like me, were hiding in your home waiting for the drunken mobs […]
BY: Unknown LOCATION: Somewhere along Ossington PHOTO BY: James Anok FIELD NOTES: Once again street art rewards the observant eye. There’s something beautiful and sad about seeing such intricate little pieces that are purposefully temporary.

Now and Then explores the stories behind Toronto’s historical plaques and monuments. It’s not a park you’re likely to happen across by accident, but if you have some time this St. Patrick’s Day, wander over to Ireland Park by the Lakeshore and learn about Irish history. But, the story at Ireland Park isn’t a cheerful […]

The delays, the overcrowded vehicles and the temporary closures of entire subway lines, all combine to provide a uniquely painful experience. The downside is […]
