Extra, Extra: Claymation, the Captain, and Gridlock



Extra, Extra: Claymation, the Captain, and Gridlock

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


  • We may never see the video that supposedly shows Mayor Rob Ford smoking crack, but at least there’s a claymation imitation. A screenshot is above, and the full video is here.
  • Captain John’s restaurant, shuttered because of its owner’s massive rent and property tax arrears, could pretty much only be saved by a deranged millionaire. Except now it looks like even that has failed.
  • A new estimate pegs the annual cost of gridlock for the GTA at as much as $11 billion. Will this spur our politicians to quick and decisive action? Not likely.
