TTC Talks Tasing, TDSB Cancels Schools and Pools, Toronto Hydro Prefers Air Drying
TTC strike: not today, but probably Monday. If it happens, Torontoist will let you know.
If you were to get your ass kicked by a TTC Special Constable, would you prefer a gun, a taser, or the standard pepper spray? The TTC launches a $100,000 study to find out.
The Toronto District School Board is set to make some controversial changes over the next few years. A report released yesterday threatens the closure of school swimming pools, the cancellation of ESL classes to adult students, and bans homework on holidays.
According to a survey conducted by WWF Canada, 85% of Torontonians switched off their lights for Earth Day. Call us skeptical, but can you really find that out from surveying 1,002 people online? What’s your take, sociologists?
Speaking of making small lifestyle changes to conserve energy, Toronto Hydro is giving away 75,000 clotheslines to GTA homeowners. The clotheslines are valued at $13 each and will save you money on your hydro bill, so JACKPOT.
