Extra, Extra: A Winter SWAT Team, Ezra Levant, and Sex Criminals on TV
Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- Roughly 300 residents have been without water for more than a week on account of frozen pipes. Now, the city is establishing “a SWAT team dedicated to working with residents who have no water as a result of frozen pipes outside of their home or building,” the Star reports. The special super team will be in touch with afflicted residents and help them coordinate repairs and, just maybe, thaw justifiably icy spirits in the process.
- A few days ago, man-shaped vitriol sprinkler system Ezra Levant announced that he was launching a right-wing news channel from his living room, in hopes of picking up where the
mercifullydeparted Sun News left off. Today, he opened its crowd funding campaign. Tomorrow, who knows. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
- Great news for perverts: Local hero Chip Zdarsky (the cartoonist pseudonym of ex-National Post illustrator and advice-giver Steve Murray) continues to make the big time. His comic-book series Sex Criminals, which is about a couple who freezes time with each sexual climax and was co-created with writer Matt Fraction, has just been picked up for television adaptation by Universal. Zdarsky is currently working on a revival of the iconic Howard the Duck series for Marvel.
