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.

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 […]
