Dog Poop Crisis Rocks City, Goodbye Zero Tolerance, Toronto FC Boasts Delicious Treats, A Loney Ceeb


City council says up to 2,500 tonnes of dog poop are deposited in park trash bins every year. This is problematic since our garbage dumps in Michigan refuse to take it. So where should we put our growing heap of canine feces? Councillor Pam McConnell (Ward 28, Toronto Centre-Rosedale) thinks the city should provide green bins in parks, while Councillor Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) doesn’t think it’s a big deal for dog owners to carry the waste home and flush/compost it. What are your thoughts on this crap?
Environment Canada warns that a late-season blizzard could take Toronto by storm this evening.

Toronto FC fans will be treated to a mélange of international snack foods at the concession stand when the field opens later this month. Portuguese cornbread sandwiches, chicken rotis, Jamaican patties, fish and chips, bratwurst, corn on the cob, hot dogs, corned beef on rye and “Ye Olde Chip Butty”. Perhaps this “football” doesn’t sound like such a tedious sport after all.
Bell Canada and local arts groups are making utility boxes pretty.
Both the Habs and the Leafs are out of the playoffs and nobody’s watching the CBC. What will happen to all the advertisers? Poor Ceeb.
