Encapsulating Toronto’s Past

Email, cell phones, Twitter, and even old-fashioned snail mail mean there are plenty of ways to communicate in the present—but if you want to send a message to the future, there’s only one thing for it: a time capsule. Toronto has been squirreling away all sorts of trinkets in time capsules over the past hundred […]

Goodbye, and Thank You

When I left grad school, halfway through a PhD I’ll probably never finish, I didn’t have any idea I’d wind up as a journalist. Back in Toronto after five years away, all I knew was that I still wanted to write, and that living elsewhere had made me freshly aware of this city: of how […]

The Search Is On for a New Toronto Police Chief

On election night, Toronto showed that it is ready for a fresh start. But a new mayor is not the only major change coming to the city—by February, Toronto will have a new chief of police, too. The Toronto Police Services Board (TPSB)—the seven-member civilian body responsible for hiring the city’s next top cop—is currently […]
