Extra, Extra: The Future of Union Station and the Fate of a Banksy

A trio of 3D simulations of a revitalized Union Station were posted today on unionstationTO’s YouTube channel. One (above) shows an army of CGI worker-drones strutting through the station at rush hour, while the other two deliver short fly-throughs of the future lower level and ground floor of the station. Construction on the $640-million project […]

Weekend Reading List

Every weekend, a round-up of top stories from across the St. Joseph Media network. It’s book awards season and Quill & Quire looks at two of the biggest: the Booker and the Rogers Writers’ Trust. Chinatown has a new minimalist tea shop. Toronto Life tries to figure out what that means. Where has your Beer […]

Platform Primer: Health Care

In the run-up to the provincial election on October 6, we’ll be comparing the major parties’ platforms on issues that matter to urban voters. Health care is a portfolio that’s eventually of great interest to all Ontarians; while it’s all well and good to be transported or educated, being alive is what life’s all about. […]

Platform Primer: Education

In the run-up to the provincial election on October 6, we’ll be comparing the major parties’ platforms on issues that matter to urban voters. Education: it gives kids somewhere to go during the day, post-adolescents a place to learn about Jagermeister and fornication, and prevents us from becoming a province of shirtless unemployables locking ourselves […]

Budget Votes at City Hall

All summer, various committees of council have been meeting to discuss a set of reports issued by KPMG, who were commission to identify programs the City could cut, in order to help save money. They didn’t find much. After their review, and upon comparison with other similar cities, it turns out that approximately 90% of […]

Budget Debate Continues at City Hall

Yesterday morning began, as city council meetings always do, quietly enough. First everyone milling about with coffee, then the singing of “O Canada,” followed by presentations of petitions and some procedural matters. And then things got a bit tense. Rob Ford took the floor to defend his approach to budgetary matters, sounding the gravy alarms […]

Budget Cuts Under Debate Today

Today, after a summer of consultant reports, public discussion, and a great deal of speculation in the press, as well as two marathon Executive Committee meetings, Toronto city council will finally make at least a few decisions: they’ll be considering a roster of proposed service/budget cuts to make as they work towards balancing the 2012 […]

An Interview With Canada’s Poutine-Eating Champion

Ben Do, 23, is a poutine-devouring machine. Last May, at the first-ever World Poutine-Eating Championships, the Kitchener native (who entered the contest as an amateur) ate seven pounds of Smoke’s Poutinerie’s traditional poutine in 10 minutes, putting him well ahead of many of the professional competitive eaters he was up against. Do’s performance made him […]

A New Look For the Blue Jays?

It may be back to the future time for the Blue Jays. Based on a leaked image picked up by the “athletics aesthetics” website Uni Watch, the 2012 Blue Jays may adopt a variation of the iconic logo the team used during its first two decades. While the version making the rounds of the internet […]

Extra, Extra: A Singalong in the Square and Sad News for Dogs

To voice their support for Waterfront Toronto’s plan for Toronto’s Lower Don Lands and Port Lands, #CodeBlueTO held a rally at Nathan Phillips Square this morning. Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) joined the group in a rousing rendition of Charlie Rich’s “Behind Closed Doors” (with some lyrical alterations). On city council’s agenda for tomorrow […]

Taking a Shot at TIFF

Shooting red-carpet galas is like being in a sardine can wondering why the hell you’re there. Oh right, shooting TIFF celebs. But in many ways, it’s like shooting fish in a too-large barrel: some days you might get a funny smirk or a silly moment; other times, depending on where you’re positioned, you might not […]

New Literary Journal Gets Meta With a Review on Reviewing

Book reviews in Canada are becoming an increasingly rare art form. And yet Jessica Duffin Wolfe is leaping on board, albeit in a way that embraces new media. The Toronto Review of Books will launch on September 20 as a quarterly, online-only journal. Don’t be misled by its name, though–founder Duffin Wolfe is hot to […]

Duly Quoted: Doug Ford

Every Sunday afternoon from 1–3 p.m., councillor Josh Matlow (Ward 22, St. Paul’s) hosts a radio show about City Hall on Newstalk 1010. Today, apparently after having previously agreed to appear on the show and then cancelling, mayoral brother Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North) called in unexpectedly, taking issue with various remarks Matlow made […]
