Election, election, election. It's happening Monday and it's probably all you'll hear about until it's over. (You may well hear about it for a while after, but let's pretend while we can that Monday will be the end.) In the news: Cycle Toronto has a plan for the city's biking future, a supporter of Brampton mayor Susan Fennell threw coffee at a reporter, and what the school board elections are all about.
Happy birthday, Drake! Yes, the holiday that will (hopefully) one day surpass Christmas in Canada has arrived: our own Aubrey Graham is one year older. It hardly seems worthwhile, but there's also other news to look at today: Doug Ford denies calling a reporter a bitch, parents in East York protest the conditions of their kids' school, and there's no armed security in Queen's Park.
Sometimes, you just have to get right to it. In the news: Parliament will sit today in the wake of the Ottawa shootings, Bill Blair says there is no credible threat of a similar attack in Toronto, Queen’s Park holds a moment of silence to honour the fallen soldier in Ottawa, Doug Ford shares his views on what needs to be done to keep the nation safe, and the identity of the killed soldier is confirmed to be Corporal Nathan Cirillo.
