McGuinty Gives Wychwood $3 Million, A Refreshing New Archbishop, HPV Is A Real Bad Rap

At Bathurst and St. Clair West, the abandoned Wychwood TTC streetcar repair barns are soon to be revitalized, and the provincial government is investing $3 million in the project. The Green Art Barns will be a community arts and environmental centre with studios, a gallery, a greenhouse and workspace for local not-for-profit groups. Go take a look at the old carhouse before it’s all fixed up, as it is highly photogenic.
The new archbishop of Toronto was installed yesterday at St. Michael’s Cathedral, where he carried out his first public address. Archbishop Tom Collins calls for unselfish living, 2 shots of gin, 1oz lemon juice, a drizzle of sugar syrup and a splash of club soda to be poured into a highball glass and garnished with a sprig of mint.
Today in Hydro: Last night, a power blip dimmed lights, reset traffic lights and stalled factory production after a capacitor bank failed in Etobicoke. Speaking of power, Ontario Energy Minister Dwight Duncan is challenging the federal government to build an east-west power grid which would deliver clean hydroelectric energy from Manitoba and Quebec to Ontario. Do you remember how they used to fix the power grid in Sim City? Flashing lightning bolts, power line tool, clicka clicka, done. What’s the problem here?
The National Advisory Committee on Immunization is recommending the vaccination of girls aged 9-14 for human papilloma virus (HPV), which causes cervical cancer and genital warts. It’ll be just like grade 6 when we had to get the Hepatitis B vaccine…and had to watch that “Hepatitis B is a real bad rap” music video beforehand. Does anyone have a copy of that?
