A nine-year-old Kansas City boy had his “Little Free Library” stand shut down after it was deemed an illegal structure by city officials. People are the worst. In the news: Possible coyote attacks in Markham, lighting up the Bloor Viaduct will cost over $4.5 million dollars, “taxi widows” say the City is driving them out of business, and Christine Elliott will likely make a bid to become the next leader of the Progressive Conservatives.

When you think about it, Tuesday is kind of the unsung hero of the week. It props us up after the catastrophes of Monday, and floats us gently into the welcoming arms of the mid-week. In the news: Cabinet shuffles for Kathleen Wynne’s Liberals, 900 lawn signs are missing from Joe Cressy’s byelection campaign, a record number of complaints for the provincial ombudsman in 2013, and Bell Media will cut 120 jobs in Toronto.

Hearing about the 30-degree heat and 80-per-cent humidity that World Cup players are dealing with really puts local weather into perspective, doesn't it? Anyway, here's some Monday news for you. City officials were unhappy about the province's plan to provide food aid to citizens during last winter's ice storm, a U of T student has been arrested in Tajikistan, and WorldPride is an economic boon to Toronto businesses.

Happy Pride! Happy NXNE! Happy World Cup! Happy everything! But seriously, if you can’t find something happening in the city that doesn’t make you happy this weekend, you should probably just move elsewhere. In the news: Joe Cressy and Adam Vaughan duke it out over climate change in the Trinity-Spadina federal byelection race, a Toronto doctor pledges $10 million to research aboriginal health issues, and road closures around the city this weekend.

Apparently, a Toronto advertising company has relocated its office to a local bar for the duration of the World Cup so that employees can take in games, while still maintaining some level of productivity. Who doesn’t appreciate a company with priorities? In the news: Tim Hudak will step down on July 2, the TDSB elects a new chair and hits the pause button on a deal with the Confucius Institute, and Toronto Hydro gets a passing mark on its ice storm response.
