Torontoist closes out each weekday with a quick collection of just about everything we think you ought to care about (or ought not miss)—say hi to Extra, Extra.
- This pretty timelapse of Toronto’s skyline (above) was created by Stephen James and Viesturs Izotovs. Watch as the night creeps in starting at about 0:53, and see if just for a second you forget about today.
- The biggest news this post-holiday Tuesday, of course, is about Michael Bryant, or rather what Bryant has been deemed not criminally responsible for: the death of Darcy Allan Sheppard. The Post‘s Peter Kuitenbrouwer has a thoughtful column, calling for more bike lanes and suggesting that Sheppard ought not be lionized by cyclists. (We’re totally with Kuitenbrouwer on the former, and the Post bolstered the case for the latter with photos of Sheppard this afternoon.) Our own Todd Aalgaard, meanwhile, argues that Sheppard—martyr or hero or not—still died as the result of “dangerous driving.”
- A small plane crashed into a Markham office building today, killing the passenger and pilot.
- And if three deaths weren’t enough to deal with on one Tuesday, Will Munro is being remembered today, after the artist and activist died Friday. Bruce LaBruce wrote about Munro for us this morning, and Eye cast a wider net, collecting memorials from everyone from Paul Petro to Maggie MacDonald.
- Bruce McDonald’s Broken Social Scene–centric feature-length film, This Movie is Broken, has a trailer. We like it for that.
