“Despite our ongoing Gawker fetish, Toronto will never have anything remotely close to it.”

When Eye published an article in August about how Toronto has no Gawker equivalent, and specifically faulted us for “all-consuming earnestness” and being unable to address the city’s “gore,” we didn’t really have anything to say about it. Torontoist co-founder and NOW Online Editor Josh Errett does, though: in this week’s issue of the already Torontoist-heavy mag, Errett cuts to the chase, chronicling the creation of Torontoist as proof positive that something like Gawker couldn’t exist here, in no small part because of the “bizarre hypersensitivity of some of our best about-towns.”
