Newsstand: September 9, 2014

We’re already halfway through TIFF. Have you had an interesting run-in with a celebrity yet? Or do you have any good stories about trying to impersonate a celebrity for your own personal gain? In the news: print media were asked to leave a Rob Ford speech after being invited, an octogenarian has been charged with stunt driving, Vogue Magazine thinks West Queen West is actually so hip it hurts, and a new study on discrimination against homelessness by health care professionals.

Weekend Newsstand: September 6, 2014

It's TIFF time and we've all got celeb fever. Get downtown and snap some selfies with whomever you find; you never know, they might be famous someday soon. In the news this morning: Pearson Airport employees will speak to Metrolinx about the Union-Pearson transit fare, Ford has been subpoenaed to testify in a case against Sandro Lisi, the Star is trying to unseal documents about a wild night Ford had in April, and a local mogul proves that even while being charitable, rich people have more fun than the rest of us.

It's going to be a hot one today, maybe even record-breaking—if the temperature passes 32 C, it will be the warmest Sept. 5 on record—so stay hydrated (or, preferably, somewhere air-conditioned). In the news this morning: on transit Toronto struggles to keep up with the pack, Canada will see a flu vaccine shortage this fall, and the TDSB has been shut out of expected condo fees that would pay for a construction backlog.

Drop whatever you are doing and go look at some photos from Al Pacino’s appearance at the TIFF Gala last night. That man’s hair is a thing of unparalleled beauty. In the news: Olivia Chow supports right-angled curbs for pedestrian safety, Sarah Thomson mulls over dropping out of the mayoral race, parade organizers are on the hook to pay a $14,000 police bill by today, and fewer than 55,000 unemployed people in Toronto actually collect EI.
