Extra, Extra: Tapping Trees and Music Memories

Every weekday’s end, Extra, Extra collects just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.

  • Local food harvesters Not Far From the Tree have just started a new and yummy program: tapping city trees for sap, and making syrup out of it. If you have a maple tree on your property, here’s how to take part. (Thank you in advance for inviting us over for pancakes.)
  • Music journalist (and Torontoist alum) Sam Sutherland has been writing a book about Canadian punk rock; it now has a publisher, and will be hitting the shelves next year.
  • You know what we’re still talking about? Usage based billing. It’s important, and hey, the CRTC has just launched, “of its own initiative”(!), a review of its decision to impose it; interested parties have until April 29 to submit comments. One of the best arguments—or sets of arguments—against the practice that we’ve seen: Teksavvy president Rocky Gaudrault, writing in the Financial Post yesterday.
