In the news: changes are in store for Toronto liquor licences, a vague draft policy on carding needs more work, Rob Ford has some new muscle on his re-election campaign team, and the Leafs are not playoff-bound.
Only time will tell whether the Rob Ford Crackathon game will become the Drugwars of a new generation. In the news: Open Streets might transform Bloor Street this summer, new finance minister Joe Oliver chats with some old Bay Street chums, a transportation consultant from Great Britain schools Toronto on public transit, and a film based on an infamous Mississauga murder heads straight to VOD.

Rob Ford is in the news again. By now it wouldn't feel like home if he weren't, though, would it? News today: Bill Clinton weighs in on Ford, staggering wealth inequality in Canada, city council approves more food trucks, and Unifor continues to push for car plant unionization.
It is Thursday. So close to Friday and yet so far away. A blue police box that is bigger on the inside would really come in handy right about now, wouldn’t it? In the news: Joe Cressy doesn’t think the oilsands are evil anymore, Olivia Chow doesn’t think that the downtown relief line should be an election issue, it turns out it is not as easy as you would think to move a Victorian coach house, and a Toronto man who helped pioneer amnesia research has died.
Happy April Fools' Day! Are you the person who plays hilarious practical jokes on your friends, family, and co-workers today? In the news, everybody hates you. Also, mayor mad about expenses again, councillors want ability to be recalled, and famous person not happy with our airport.
