  • Wanna have a say in “determin[ing] the future of the Gardiner Expressway and Lake Shore Boulevard from Jarvis Street to the Don Valley Parkway”? You could do worse than taking this survey about it, from the City and Waterfront Toronto, the results of which will be considered in the City’s plans for the waterfront. You’ve got till Sunday to fill it out. [via the Post]
  • Worth spending an afternoon with if federal politics are your thing: The Accidental Citizen?, a report that’s the result of “exit interviews” with sixty-five MPs who left (or lost) that job recently, conducted and collected by Samara Canada. The full report is here, or in a PDF here.
  • The rumoured, and now actual Canadian equivalent to Fox News is the Quebecor-run Sun TV News Channel. Howard Bernstein’s Medium Close Up is where to go if you like long-ish analytical pieces about broadcast journalism, and “Fox News North” is no exception. “In the land of ‘sorry,'” writes Bernstein, “I am not sure that media crazies will be a welcome addition.”
  • And we wouldn’t dare end today without reminding you one last time that Torontoist and Waterfront Toronto’s competition to rename Sherbourne Park ends tonight at midnight. Vote for your favourite name of the three finalists here, then check back first thing Wednesday morning to find out the winner.
