Handmade in T.O.

On February 9, the online hub of Toronto’s handmade community announced it would be shuttering its site at the end of the month. Run by Jen Anisef, Toronto Craft Alert has been an online bulletin board of sorts for craft events, workshops, and exhibitions since 2006. Anisef also helped to co-found the city’s annual City […]

Truth, Laughter, and a Busted Sound System

From the moment event emcee Dallas Goldtooth bursted on stage, it was clear that last week’s Indigenous Writers’ Gathering Gala Reading Night (held at the Native Canadian Centre of Toronto for three hours on Friday evening) would not be the stuffy literary gathering one might typically experience in downtown Toronto. Goldtooth is best known for […]

Fair Dealing for Sun Media

Toronto’s Michael Balazo has been in Halifax since November 2011, working as a writer on CBC’s This Hour Has 22 Minutes. Since he left town, he’d stopped posting on his satirical blog, Toronto Sun Cover Reviews, where for years he’d been writing select reviews of the covers of, in his words, “Canada’s most reactionary/hysterical newspaper.” […]

No Trouble for Paradise

Today’s meeting of the Toronto and East York Community Council is going to launch a process that will determine whether the Paradise Theatre building, located near the intersection of Bloor Street West and Dovercourt, will be granted heritage designation under the Ontario Heritage Act [PDF].

Extra, Extra: Guns, Bears, and Bars

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 […]

Extra, Extra: Tarragon Theatre Tussle, Postering Perils

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss. The Municipal Licensing and Standards Division has been handing out tickets for postering, it turns out—not to the people who put them up (because they can’t be sure who that is), but to the owners of the […]

Vintage Toronto Ads: Union-Friendly Garments

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 […]

Citizen Group Seeks Input on a New Business Model for Riverdale Farm

The Riverdale Farm Coalition, a citizen group deputized by city council to find a way to keep Riverdale Farm running without City funding, is now seeking input from Toronto residents on ways to pay the historic neighbourhood attraction’s $500,000 in yearly operating costs. An online survey containing questions on topics ranging from admission fees (the […]

Ten Questions With: Atom Egoyan

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. Atom Egoyan is a renaissance man. He has already proven himself a master of the moving picture, with titles like The Sweet Hereafter, […]

Former DJs Humble and Fred Return to Radio, But Not the Airwaves (For Now)

Popularly known as Humble and Fred, ex-radio personalities Howard Glassman and Fred Patterson have announced a new partnership with Rogers that will see their podcast being promoted on 19 of the company’s radio stations’ websites across the country, and on the stations themselves. It’s the first time Rogers has gotten involved in a purely online […]

Scott Pilgrim vs. Reality

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. By carrying around the books for reference and by positioning […]

Reel Toronto: Bride of Chucky and Repo!

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 […]
