Extra, Extra: The Raccoons Song You Always Needed, Chasing the UPX, and Analyzing the Federal Budget

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

  • For all of our robot- or raccoon-loving friends out there, the Cybertronic Spree uploaded a video of them performing “Run With Us,” the theme song from the great Canadian ’80s cartoon The Raccoons. The band performed the song at Bloor Cinema last month as part of Comicon.
  • Metrolinx and the provincial government announced today that the Union-Pearson Express will open to the public on June 6. While the link to the airport has been criticized for its high fare price (especially if you don’t have a Presto card), Global does a nice time lapse video of what the 25 minute trip looks like. The people may not like paying for things, but they do like shiny things.
  • Over at Metro, columnist Matt Elliott takes a look at the federal funding for transit. Spoiler alert: It’s not much money, and we’ll have to wait a bit longer. The silver lining is that we’re totally used to both of those things, so we can’t even be disappointed. Ontario will launch its budget tomorrow.
