Monday morning news! There's a holiday in two days, so let's just get through this together. In the news: Pan Am Games security, contract agreements for Bombardier employees, and cigarette-butt recycling.
Today in the news: Jagmeet Singh violated parliamentary procedure but won't be penalized, a bike shop is searching for an expensive stolen bike, Neil Bantleman's mother wants more done to bring her son home, and SmartTrack might not bring all the transit solutions we want.
News today: a court case involving workers' deaths should be ruled on today, a government source says the province is working to make gender-reassignment surgery more accessible, and one of the city's biggest landlords agrees on a settlement with two evicted tenants.
In the news this first day of June: elementary teachers increase their work-to-rule campaign; the Pan Am Games torch relay opener was a rain-soaked affair; and one of the possible Scarborough subway line routes is less than ideal.
Saturday, and what a day! The sun is out and the muggy humidity hasn't yet claimed us all. In the news: the Pan Am Games force closures around the city, Sunday-only streetcar stops will be a thing of the past, and the High Park Zoo peacock.
It's Friday again! The weather is good, the weekend is here, and we should have all seen Mad Max: Fury Road by now. Seriously, it's great. In the news this morning: foreign military personnel get half off at the LCBO, Mark Saunders defends carding, a new Iron Chef-related restaurant will open in Toronto, and a local musician suffered a stroke.
What a day, what a glorious day. In the news: the Pan Am Games are under budget on capital costs, the benefits and problems with P3s (and a handy definition), and the retirement of Canada's first female major-airline pilot.
For Friday, think about the people around you: the precariously employed people making up half the city's workforce, the Serbian Orthodox Church leader asked to step down, and the teachers clashing with provincial government who may soon be legislated back to work.
