Extra, Extra: Bike Lane Surveys, the New City Librarian, and Maple Syrup Impostors

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

  • Do you love the new cycle tracks on Richmond, Adelaide and Simcoe streets? Alternately, do you hate the new cycle tracks on Richmond, Adelaide and Simcoe streets? If you have an opinion about them, you can have your say by filling out this City of Toronto survey.
  • As director of collections management and city-wide services, Vickery Bowles supervised collection development for the TPL’s print, audiovisual and electronic collections. Soon, she’ll be responsible for a whole lot more—the whole public library service, to be exact. She’s just been named the new City Librarian; the job will start on January 5, 2015.
  • The International Maple Syrup Institute demanded change, and everyone knows that when the International Maple Syrup Institute speaks, authorities take heed. New regulations will “harmonize the grading system for maple syrup produced in Canada and the United States” and make it easier for consumers to distinguish between the real thing and caramel-coloured sugar water masquerading as the real thing. The changes will also see “flavour descriptors” added to labels, which is good, as we think the word “empyreumatic” is currently underused.
