While the mystery persists, in the end, it looks like detective Courtney Love can’t take credit for finding flight MH370…although her investigative work on Daniel Tosh seems pretty spot on. In the news: a new report says that the Billy Bishop expansion would be bad news for boaters, criticism over the provincial government’s funding kibosh of the Beaches International Jazz Festival, Scarborough residents try to save their trees, and Twitter trolls go after James Reimer’s wife.

It was a nice couple of months without daily Rob Ford news, wasn't it? But now it seems we're back to the old status quo. Today's news: Ford issues defence against accusation that he orchestrated a jailhouse beating, construction lags behind in rollout of all-day kindergarten, councillors plan to put forward a motion upholding the ban on jets at Toronto Island Airport, and the Star reflects on the winter we just survived.

Apparently Rob Ford’s lawyer thinks that police will find a way to anonymously leak the infamous crack video before the upcoming municipal election to, presumably, squash the mayor’s chance at re-election. Nowadays, everyone is a conspiracy theorist. In the news: John Tory officially kicks off his campaign, Sarah Thomson announces her mayoral bid, the executive committee backs a BMO Field expansion, and backlogs to police background checks are getting out of control.

So, how is that St. Paddy’s Day hangover treating you this morning? Grab some coffee, pop a few Advil, and have an internet hug from me in the form of some news headlines. In the news: Toronto public health thinks hookah smoking is bad, which is bad news for hookah lounges; the Trinity-Spadina by-election is already getting spicy; David Soknacki’s Reddit AMA was pretty great; and there’s a new Ford aiming to join City Council.

It's St. Patrick's Day! Get drunk, if you're into that. Or stay at home to avoid the crushing mass of inebriated college kids likely to make its way to a bar near you by sometime tomorrow evening. Onto the news: plans for Eglinton's transit expansion are coming along, most Torontonians don't want trains carrying crude oil through the city, and Conservative MPs are cherry-picking their next electoral competition.

He’s my boyfriend, he’s your boyfriend, he’s everyone’s boyfriend. Congratulations to George Stroumboulopoulos, who is the new face of Hockey Night In Canada—but seriously, though, he’s mostly my boyfriend… In the news: Morgan Baskin is an 18-year-old high-school student who wants to be the next mayor of Toronto, Toronto’s presence at SXSW underwhelms this year even after that alliance our city formed with the City of Austin, security improvements will be made at York University in the wake of a double campus shooting, and snow—like the weather, not the '90s rapper—isn’t through with us yet.
