Tobogganing: Canada’s deadliest backyard winter pastime. Vaughan Councillor Sandra Yeung Racco is campaigning for a helmet law in Ontario to prevent sled-related injuries amongst children with a need for speed. Okay, but quid pro quo, Mom and Dad. If you want us to wear safety gear while tobogganing, I want a more bad-ass sled. Like a double-length GT Snow Racer…with flamethrowers.
“Stéphane Dion is not a leader”: The Conservatives release an ad campaign attacking Stéphane Dion which is, frankly, more embarrassing than effective for the party. Looks like somebody wants to play dirty politics, but will Dion’s supportors join in on the mud slinging?
The 407 ETR company is giving away gas discount coupons and free kilometres to frequent users as part of a customer loyalty program. Rumour has it that accumulating 10,000 kilometres will earn you your choice of a free waterproof AM FM radio or a mini Swiss fondue set.
Visit Toronto! We’ve got the CN Tower, Broadway-style theatre and notorious informant prostitutes. The Daily Mail traced Norma Levy to a Toronto apartment over 30 years after she was photographed naked with former U.K. undersecretary of defence Anthony Lambton.

The Toronto Police are holding recruitment sessions aimed at the LGBTQ community. Sexy gay cops, eh? It’s just like Six Feet Under, except I’m getting a speeding ticket.
