In the news: People aren't buying Pan Am Games tickets at a terribly enthusiastic rate (to say the least), and a petition to prevent the rapper Action Bronson from playing Yonge and Dundas Square during NxNE might actually have worked. But it also might not have. Plus, Captain John's seafood restaurant boat is floating off to where all good boats end up as they round the circle of boatlife...the scrap yard.
If you watched Josh Donaldson's walk-off homer last night, then you are likely having a happy Wednesday morning. To the rest of you: Happy Wednesday morning! In the news: the Scarborough subway could cost the City another billion dollars, the Sun welcomes a new editor, and Batman and the Joker take over Yonge Street.
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.
