Extra, Extra: Liberals, Scanners, and the Mayor’s Work Habits

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

Justin Trudeau at the Ryerson Digital Media Zone on March 27.

  • The Liberal Party of Canada is apparently having some trouble filling seats at a “leadership showcase” scheduled to take place at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre this weekend, where all six leadership candidates are supposed to be speaking. And no wonder: general admission tickets are $150. Maybe people would be more receptive to $25 tickets for just Justin Trudeau?
  • A Toronto company called Matterform is trying to perfect the consumer-grade 3D scanner (yes, this would be for use with your 3D printer), and it has raised a ton of money on Indiegogo. Don’t blow it, guys.
  • The CBC filed a freedom-of-information request for Mayor Rob Ford’s parking records and found that his average day at City Hall appears to last about four hours. That’s if he drives in at all.
