Extra, Extra: Flourishing French Schools, Transit Tension

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

A slide from last nigh's transit town hall presentation.

  • Earlier today, we reported on last night’s transit town hall, co-hosted by Councillor Josh Matlow (Ward 22, St. Paul’s) and TTC Chair Karen Stintz (Ward 16, Eglinton-Lawrence). If you want to learn more about the Eglinton LRT line, or transit plans in general, the full slidedeck of yesterday’s presentation is now online [PDF].
  • And while we’re on the subject of transit, a note to Rob Ford: when even the Toronto Sun thinks you’ve lost the plot, it may be time to change tack.
  • Time for something happy. French schools in Toronto, it seems, are going like gangbusters, thanks to a change in provincial policy in 2006. Très bien.
