Happy second day of October. And now, straight to the news: Mayor Rob Ford's occasional driver gets arrested, Toronto worries about proposed changes to part of an Enbridge pipeline running underneath us, it's been 20 years since Bell created the 416/905 divide, and what may be the world's smallest dog lives in the GTA.

If you're feeling punchy this morning, it's probably because you didn't get enough sleep last night. What are you going to do about it? Probably nothing. And in the news: city council may vote on allowing jets at the island airport before any hard evidence comes out; Police Chief Bill Blair's time is up to present a report on the shooting of Sammy Yatim—but one probably won't be available for another month; the elephants are, at long last, moving to
Florida California to retire in peace; and Councillor Josh Matlow proposes that we get free, city-wide Wi-Fi.
Here's the news: Toronto councillors continue to grapple with the province's Scarborough subway plans, Bombardier tests its new "whisper jets," police investigate a sexual assault that happened at TIFF, and the Leafs win a preseason game.
Ditch those fall fashions again today, 'cause it's another scorcher out there. In the news: Metrolinx's chair puts out a public letter defending a shortened Scarborough subway line, outlook not good for the Sam the Record Man sign, the City's freedom of information department is relying on the honour system with regard to the mayor's request backlog, and the St. Clair streetcar line turns one hundred (and she's still got it).
See any celebs in town this weekend? Apparently, there's some kind of big event going on. In the news: two Toronto-based papers will defend their reporting on the brothers Ford, a Mississauga real estate agent has angered teachers and a local school board, an inquest into a disturbing child-abuse death begins, a local neighbourhood keeps Narconon out, and the creator of the Sam's sign isn't impressed with Ryerson.
Hey there. Some news while you wait: Porter Airlines proposes an extended runway that will supposedly reduce the noise of the jets it wants to get, 2500 city jobs are unfilled, an old lady was allegedly tasered by Peel Region Police, and Le Dolci bakery employees oh so gingerly went back to work yesterday.
Happy Labour Day! In the news: Torontonians are mostly fine with a council appointment, police rescue a (possibly terribly high) man from a great height, some GTA kindergarten classrooms aren't ready, Raonic has a shot at the U.S. Open quarter-finals, a fire destroys a tourist attraction near Waterloo, and Bieber and his security dudes descend on Toronto.
Wednesday's child is full of grace. And in the news: the province's decision to allow more police units to carry tasers receives some criticism; more flooding hit Toronto—and stranded some taxis—last night; complaints made to the City's licensing and standards division might just include one about a large rooster; and a Richmond Hill man went for an ill-advised joyride in the sky.
Morning you all. News: Constable James Forcillo was released on bail and has a pretrial hearing set for September 30; Sammy Yatim's family has cancelled a press conference originally scheduled for later today; outgoing deputy mayor Doug Holyday can open up the city whenever he wants—'cause he's got keys; and the TCHC meets today to talk about its mighty backlog of repairs.
Hey guys, how's your morning going? In the news: a second day of protests against the police shooting of Sammy Yatim planned for next week; the police may delay a decision on collecting "dooring" stats; the chief of the Durham Regional Police Services Board hates speeding; and construction is just about everywhere, so like it.
Good morning, and welcome to the first day of the rest of your lives! Just kidding, that's a horrible thing to say. In the news: Former Ontario Progressive Conservative leader John Tory might take another stab at the Toronto mayoral race; the Ontario government will announce today its plans for revitalizing Ontario Place; Mayor Rob Ford's director of logistics and operations David Price supposedly used to call the mayor's radio show on the reg'; and central Toronto and Mississauga-Halton area folks like to drink a bunch.
It's Wednesday, which means you'll keep asking people "What day is it again?" all day long, then quietly die inside when they say it's not Thursday. In the news: residents of the recently raided North Etobicoke complex allege that they were traumatized by police, the woman who supposedly threw a drink at the mayor has a trial date, Rob Ford really likes astrology, and Parkdale's restaurant/bar cap bylaw is moving on forward.
