Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Scandal! Rob Ford’s campaign forgot the “S” in a sign outside his headquarter[s]! Who could possibly vote for a man who omits S’s from things?
- Looks like the Junction might be getting that Starbucks after all, as an application to have “two…illuminated signs, one projection sign and one wall sign for ‘STARBUCKS'” has been approved by the City.
- Peter Kuitenbrouwer of the Post noticed something recently that you might’ve, too: the multiculturalism statue outside of Union Station (you know, the guy holding the globe) is missing. Well, not quite missing; it’s been removed for construction work.
- Design mag AZURE got itself a redesign—no longer huge, its size has been bumped down to “a more reader-friendly 9 x 11.5 inches, but,” the press release announcing the change cutely maintains, “there is nothing reduced about the magazine’s aspirations.”
- Meanwhile, The Walrus has revamped its archives, which means that if you want to read, say, Gary Stephen Ross’s wonderful profile of Vancouver from the March 2010 issue, or Carol Shaben’s investigative report about air safety from November 2009, you can do so a bit more easily now.
- Last week, Biking Toronto announced the winner of their competition to find the city’s best bike route. The downtown St. George/Beverley Street path took the prize.
- And Toronto is “very polite.” That is just one insight to be gleaned from the Economist‘s “Doing business in Toronto” podcast.
