We publish a lot of articles on Torontoist, and sometimes it’s hard to keep up. Populist is a weekly recap, appearing every Sunday night, that features some of the coolest, most interesting, most commented, and most recommended posts from our past week.
- Tony Makepeace continued the ever-awesome Panoramaist with a look inside the gorgeous Four Seasons Centre. (This week’s most recommended post.)
- Karen Whaley got quoted entirely out of context by The Star. That’ll teach us not to diss Rosie DiManno! Wait––no, no it won’t.
- Marc Lostracco interviewed Raine Maida, and seriously dashed the hopes of everyone hoping to get an iPhone.
- Ken Hunt and Christopher Bird went head-to-head on the issue of black-focused schools, which is just as controversial an issue as you’d expect.
- Robin Rix pointed our attention to London, where a $1.6 billion repair on a rail station is making us crazily jealous.
- Here’s a fun game to play at home: call an anti-TTC stencil “right wing,” like Jonathan Goldsbie did, and watch people get really really furious for some reason. (This week’s most commented-on post.)
Goldsbie also wrote about the Ontario Coalition Against Poverty’s demonstration against video cameras––apparently, homeless people would rather be fed than watched! Weird!
- David Fleischer wrote about Blues Brothers 2000, a shameful, shameful moment for Toronto’s film history.
- Jamie Bradburn pointed out the obvious and the kinda-racist and kinda-sexist.
- Kevin Plummer looked at how our city honours its soldiers.
