  • If you happen to come across DVDs loaded with really important voter data from 2010, please return them as soon as possible to Doug Ford (Ward 2, Etobicoke North). He would doubtless be very grateful, because “entire voters’ list with contact info, supporters, non-supporters, signs, volunteers, all voter contact records, etc.” would make running his brother Rob’s campaign for mayor far easier.
  • Spring training is back! Which means that warm weather must surely be on its way, and that it’s about time for probably overly optimistic Blue Jays–related headlines to start making their appearance!
  • Karen Stintz has announced that the sunflower will be the symbol of her campaign for mayor. “Sunflowers are strong, they are bold, and they always turn to face the sun,” she said today. There’s at least one problem with her choice of theme flower, however: as one horticulturally informed individual was quick to note, “sunflowers look in one direction, usually east.”
