Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not miss.
- The Art Gallery of Ontario has just announced that it’s going to be extending its David Bowie exhibition for the third time, meaning Bowie fans now have until November 29 to go commune with the contents of their idol’s vast closet. Better book those tickets in advance, though.
- By the time you read this, Bloor and St. George stations should both be offering free wi-fi. This is the first step toward free wi-fi and cellphone service at all of Toronto’s subway stations. (Though whether we’ll ever truly get to that point is still an open question.)
- Toronto has been named “Youthful City of the Year,” whatever that means.
- Spacing‘s latest collection of Mayor Rob Ford–themed buttons is truly excellent. Get them while you can—because, as we all know, the market for Ford collectibles is red-hot right now.
- Yup, the mayor has truly penetrated popular culture, for good or ill. He was referenced on Saturday Night Live this week for the second show in a row.
- He was even recently the subject of a New Yorker cartoon. How highbrow.
- Meanwhile, if you have a creative idea that might somehow help usher Ford out of politics, the Toronto Awesome Foundation wants to give you a $1,000 grant to make it happen.
- In the past, we’ve sometimes wondered just how well construction was progressing on the new Eglinton Crosstown light-rail line. But now, thanks to this handy map of the project’s tunnelling progress, we’ll never wonder again.
