Tim Hortons debuted a spicy, savoury doughnut called the “Buffalo Crunch” at the Great New York State Fair this week. The treat is covered in buffalo-style chicken wing sauce and crunched-up kettle chips. If that wasn’t already enough, tortilla strips wade in a pool of buffalo sauce at the centre. Be honest, you’d probably try it. In the news: the new location for Cornerstone Place shelter gets approved by council, a UofT satellite goes rogue in space, the Rouge Valley privacy breach widens, and a Sunwing flight gets rerouted back to Toronto due to disruptive passengers.

According to an online sports media outlet, Toronto may be under consideration to get a second NHL team in future expansion plans. Why have one team that can’t seem to get it together to win a Stanley Cup when you can have two? In the news: council bans red-light right turns at the Leaside intersection where Georgia Walsh was killed, questions about whether or not John Tory’s seven-year SmartTrack timeline is realistic, the City is forced to pay the legal fees for a successful integrity commission complaint against Maria Augimeri, and a power outage in the east end has been resolved.

The ALS Ice Bucket Challenge was kicked up a notch when former president George W. Bush denied the challenge, labelling it un-presidential. He offered to make a donation to the cause, but thankfully his wife, Laura Bush, had a bucket of ice water at the ready to dump over him, thus fulfilling the wishes of many an American liberal. In the news: An approved fee-hike for Vulnerable Sector Screening checks, a bike lane closure on the Prince Edward Viaduct, Karen Stintz may or may not still be in the mayoral race, and approval for the Raptors’ practice grounds at Exhibition Place.
