  • Toronto Public Health confirms that a patient is being tested for Ebola at Sunnybrook hospital. A spokesperson says that the patient, who had recently travelled to West Africa, is being treated in a negative pressure room–the typical course of action for preventing cross-contamination in cases of highly infectious diseases.
  • A candid interview released today by GlobalNews showed unprecedented introspection from Toronto’s former mayor, the current councillor from Ward 2 (Etobicoke North). In particular, the councillor discussed his battle with alcohol addiction, and the impact of his high-profile drug scandal on his young family.
  • An estimated 1,000 U of T students walked out of class and over to Simcoe Hall around noon today, though reports conflict as to why. According to tweets from the university’s The Varsitynewspaper, the walkout was coordinated in solidarity with striking CUPE 3902 unit 1 members. CP24, on the other hand, reported that the walkout was staged in protest of the strike in tandem with a request for a partial tuition refund from the university. Our guess? A little from Column A, and a little from Column B.
