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.
- Sarah Nicole Prickett wrote about stuff white people in Toronto like, featuring special guest expert and expat Christian Landers of Stuff White People Like. It’s like he can read our white minds!
- Val Dodge featured video of poor Rob Leth of Global News getting laid out at Riverdale Park. Is no reporter safe from snow?
- David Topping wrote an editorial encouraging TTC love in the face of rekindled hate (this week’s most commented-on post); and wrote about Toronto-based Ashley Madison’s ad directed at Eliot Spitzer in the New York Post, which is about as scuzzy as you’d expect.
- Jonathan Goldsbie wrote about the TTC’s awesome new OneStop screens, and the pretty unawesome problems with them.
- Kevin Plummer wrote about The Calling, a book written by, well, nobody’s quite sure. Maybe Michael Redhill. Someone e-mailed us and guessed it might be Alice Munro, but our money is still on whoever wrote Primary Colours.
- Maneesh Mohindra wrote about how undangerous Toronto is. Tell your friends. (No, please, tell your friends.)
- Miles Storey photographed…well, it’s a little hard to describe, but it looks like a hell of a lot of fun.
- Readers’ favourite photo of the past week (by recommends) was Tuesday’s photo of a woman glancing at a firefighter glancing at the photographer, robbanz.
- In columns this week, there were new editions of Wild Toronto (nighthawks—this week’s most recommended post), Reel Toronto (two exciting editions: American Psycho, and brand new trailers for The Incredible Hulk and The Love Guru), Vandalist (sweet shadows), Campaign Confidential (a very special Tindal stats pack), Vintage Toronto ads (Pigott Construction Company), Snappy Answers (where to hang out on St. Patrick’s Day), Portrait Project (Mike’s hot dogs), Who, What, Wear (Upside Dive), plus the inaugural Drop the Needle (PHATT al).
