Goldtooth is best known for […]
Toronto’s Michael Balazo has been in Halifax since November 2011, working as a writer on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes.

Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss. Oh, NOW Magazine. Your decision to run a photoshopped image of Rob Ford holding a gun to his head in this week’s issue is the desperate act of an alt-weekly trying to recapture a type of edginess it […]

Given the whiff of union-bashing in the air as municipal labour strife looms, it’s hard to imagine a headline such as the one employed here by clothier Philip Jamieson being created by a similar business these days. While today’s vintage ad appeared in a publication dedicated to covering the union movement, it does suggest that […]

At Torontoist we love Q&As and profiles, but sometimes asking a whole bunch of people the same set of questions can be even more revealing. So that’s what we decided to do.

Shortly after the Scott Pilgrim movie was released, in August 2010, Steven Dirckze, a Sheridan College student, set out with a few friends on a “Scott Pilgrimmage.” The idea was to visit all the locations used by Bryan Lee O’Malley in the original graphic novels.

Toronto’s extensive work on the silver screen reveals that, while we have the chameleonic ability to look like anywhere from New York City to Moscow, the disguise doesn’t always hold up to scrutiny. Reel Toronto revels in digging up and displaying the films that attempt to mask, hide, or—in rare cases—proudly display our city. Toronto […]
