  • If you were planning on buying the Toronto Argonauts, we regret to inform you that you’ve missed the boat. The CFL team has been reportedly sold to Bell and MLSE chairman Larry Tanenbaum, with an official announcement set to be made tomorrow.
  • According to a new report from the Federation of Canadian Municipalities, one in five renters spends more than 50 per cent of their income on housing, which is a sad thing to know and think about. It gets even worse: with 850,00 lower-rent units lost in the past decade (and that number rising), market downturns will disproportionately affect those renters least financially able to roll with the shifts. So sniff-sniff-sniffle, more or less.
  • Sixteen-year-old Lawrence Heights rapper (and Drake buddy) Top 5 got an endearing profile in Noisey, where he talked about how a shout-out from Drizzy’s Instagram made the girls at his school “go crazy.”
