“You Called Me A Whore”

Toronto does not take kindly to victim blaming.

During the presentation, Sanguinetti commented that “women should avoid dressing like sluts in order not to […]

Mayor Rob Ford’s Middle Finger is About to Fetch a Hefty Price

That T-shirt with a picture of Mayor Rob Ford flipping the bird that we wrote about last week—the one Margaret Atwood signed and is auctioning off to raise money for an online venture she founded, called Fanado—has about an hour and a half left on eBay. At the time of this writing, the highest bid […]

Locally Made: The Art and Design of Bookhou

The name “Bookhou” sounds vaguely French. It’s not. Rather, Bookhou is a portmanteau of the last names of its founders, John Booth and Arounna Khounnoraj. The couple are partners in both work and life, and are the artist-designers who, save for a couple of guest ceramic pieces and terraniums from friends, make everything that is […]
