Extra, Extra: Favourite Buildings, Ask Atwood Anything, and Acts of Kindness

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

  • If you’ve already voted for Toronto’s Superhero and Supervillain of the Year and find yourself still filled with judging and voting energy, why not weigh in on which building constructed in this city in the past year is your personal favourite. (And if you have not yet voted for Toronto’s Superhero and Supervillain of the Year, we urge you to do so without delay.)
  • If you’d like to know where Margaret Atwood gets her ideas, what she’s currently reading, or what happens to her characters after her books have ended, head on over to Reddit: the author has been participating in an AMA (Ask Me Anything) session this afternoon, and readers have been asking her many things indeed.
  • Because it can be heartening to head into a new year thinking about how unexpectedly nice people can be, here are some stories about people being unexpectedly nice. Lost dogs are found, lost items are returned, and driveways are shovelled. (We are not entirely certain why it is titled “Acts of kindness that prove ‘even Torontonians can be friendly and helpful'” when only one of these friendly and helpful acts took place in this city. We’re sure there were many more such acts that could have been mentioned, as Torontonians are invariably friendly and helpful and don’t need to prove that to anyone.)
