Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- Local web designer Jim Bachalo has made a few short documentaries on Toronto-specific subjects. Particularly impressive is his latest, about the people who ring the tower bells at the Church of St. James, at Church and King streets. It’s embedded above.
- My, what big eyes you have, City Hall.
- The OneCity transit plan, released last week by Karen Stintz (Ward 16, Eglinton-Lawrence) and Glenn De Baeremaeker (Ward 38, Scarborough Centre), is full of ambitious proposals. But, as a practical matter, how should politicians go about arranging for new infrastructure to be built on that scale? John Lorinc has some ideas.
- And King Textiles—on Richmond Street West, near Spadina Avenue—is being displaced by a condo development. (Surprise, surprise.) Naturally, they’re having a huge sale.
