  • Last year, the Royal Canadian Mint introduced a seven-coin Superman series, which then proceeded to sell out. Now the mint has created four new collector coins featuring some of the most iconic Superman comic book covers. The coins were, understandably, unveiled at Fan Expo, and they celebrate the fact that Superman was co-created by Toronto-born Joe Shuster. You may well know that already, perhaps because you’re an informed Superman fan, or you keep up with developments in the world of collectible coins—or because you remember being informed about your nation’s heritage through an occasional minute’s worth of dramatic historical reenactment.
  • If you have strong feelings about the future of Toronto, or strong feelings about your democratic rights and responsibilities as a Torontonian, or simply unexamined feelings about the advisability of casting a ballot, you’ll likely want to cast a ballot on October 27—and thanks to the list that’s just been made available, you can check and see whether you’re marked down as an eligible voter for the municipal election.
  • The weather is getting cool(er), and the days are getting shorter, but that doesn’t mean you have to resign yourself to many months of snack-eating, television-watching, and blanket-wrapped cocooning. (Unless you enjoy doing all those things, which is fine, as they are all very good things.) But if you’d rather spend the next while brushing up on computer or cooking or pottery skills, you might want to sign up for one of the City’s recreation programsregistration for fall and some winter programs opens this coming weekend.
