All the news outlets are talking about the TTC strike but lots of other things happened on the weekend.
A couple was killed in a bad traffic accident on Saturday night. Police suspect street racing as a possible cause.

As far as we can tell, all the Port Authority does is act as a nice little pork barrel project for local Liberals, stifle the city’s efforts to redevelop the waterfront and keep the threat of the island airport hanging over our heads. Put that in the ads.
Louise Russo, the mother who was made a paraplegic by a stray bullet, is getting a west end park named after her.
