It's almost New Year's Eve, the worst time of year to have a cold (because of the kissing). If you do have a cold, though, you're not alone. There should be a support group for us. In the news: former deputy premier George Smitherman's husband has died, Toronto Hydro is closing in on getting power back on across the city, BlackBerry is still (barely) holding in there, Talking Points Memo bestows an honour on Ford, and a holiday ham heist has a happy ending.
Although it's been said, many times, many ways…you'd better get your Christmas shopping done soon or else you'll kick yourself. In the news: be prepared for some pretty nasty weather this weekend, city council approves measures to alleviate traffic congestion, the TTC has to answer to an angry mom, no one really knows whether or not Presto cards will be functional in time for the Pan Am Games, and a Toronto-area hospice for children.
I mean honestly, who hasn't had a photo taken with the Hells Angels, am I right? In the news: both Porter and Norm Kelly are hustling for support for the Billy Bishop runway extension, you may as well consider Premier Wynne and Deputy Mayor Kelly new BFFs for life, it's hard to buy an elephant nowadays, and Sarah Polley is one step closer to an Oscar nod.
For those of us fixated on American news, de facto mayor Norm Kelly's name is making things complicated. "Was that a reference to Toronto deputy mayor Norm Kelly, or New York Police Department Commissioner and stop-and-frisk architect Ray Kelly?" Ugh, reading is so much work. Here's some more reading (this stuff is worth it): a Toronto lab may have had a breakthrough in a male infertility test; TTC fares will see a modest increase in the new year; despite rumours to the contrary, Toronto's borrowing costs are holding steady; and a census activist faces trial Friday.
