  • In 2017, Fort York will finally get a pedestrian bridge over its neighbouring rail lines. The $19.7 million project is scheduled to begin in the spring and while it comes five years late (thanks, Robbie F.), in the immortal words of Rebecca Black, we so excited.
  • Remember when it seemed like nobody was developing purpose-built rental housing in Toronto? According to Colliers International, those days are over: rental developments are expected to jump from 120 in 2015 to 2,194 in 2016 before sliding back to 830 the following year.
  • Lonca the police dog is on the mend after being attacked with a machete on the job today. Police officers showed up at a North York home to investigate an illegal gambling ring when one man rushed outside and allegedly swung the machete at Lonca’s neck. The dog was rushed to the vet and received stitches, and is expected to make a full recovery.
