Extra, Extra: Record-Breaking Home Sales, the UberX vs Taxi Debate Charges On, and Toronto Gets its Very Own Sneaker
Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- November is usually a slow month for home sales, but not this year. A record 7,385 homes were sold in Toronto, with the average price at $632,685—up by 9.6 per cent from the previous year.
- The UberX vs. taxi industry debate just got a little spicier thanks to our friends at Toronto Life, who pitted Uber Canada GM Ian Black against Beck Taxi’s operations manager, Kristine Hubbard to carry out their beef on the record. The results were
disappointinglycivilized, but illuminating nonetheless.
- Toronto just got its very own sneaker. The Nike Air Max 1 “The 6” shoes will be available as of Sunday, and have the CN Tower printed on their soles.
