  • One of Trinity Bellwoods Park’s famous white squirrels seems to have had a run-in with a car. Fortunately, she was picked up by Toronto Animal Services and now she’s safe at the Toronto Wildlife Centre, dressed in what appears to be a terrycloth jedi robe.
  • What happens when the thief who tries to make off with someone’s iPhone leaves a wallet behind in his haste to get away? Justice. That’s what happens. (Unless this is a hoax, which it very well could be.) [Via Reddit]
  • Why does the stretch of Bloor Street to the west of the University of Toronto have so many sushi joints? And what’s with all the frozen yogurt places that have opened there recently? These are questions that have been asked many times before. This is quite possibly the most comprehensive answer, to date.
