Extra, Extra: A Possible Toronto Star Lawsuit, OG Record Store Exile, and Roosh V Fans Congregate

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

  • Following a New York Magazine story alleging that the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health’s Dr. Kenneth Zucker was dismissed in part due to a false assertion by a trans adolescent, the Toronto Star could face legal repercussions. A December 17, 2015 column by Jake Pyne critiquing CAMH’s Child, Family, and Youth Gender Identity Clinic is now subject to legal complaint by Dr. Zucker. Torontoist has reached out to the Star, their lawyer, and Pyne for comment, but have yet to hear back.
  • Just weeks after Rotate This’ exile from Queen West, Toronto’s last original record store on Yonge Street is leaving its post. Play De Record, which served vinyl lovers for more than 25 years, is moving to a new location near College and Spadina. The last remaining record store in the area? Sadly, it’s HMV.
  • Followers of “alleged sewer person” Roosh V are planning to congregate at Queen’s Park this week for “tribal meetings.” According to an FAQ about the meet-ups, which are slated to take place across the world Saturday evening, the event is for “heterosexual men only” to discuss “neomasculinity.” Roosh V is notorious for his provocative calls to make rape legal, among other arguments. Last August, Mayor John Tory said the pick-up artist was not welcome in Toronto.

CORRECTION: 7:55 PM This article previously stated that the youth made a false allegation against Dr. Zucker was his former patient, which is incorrect. We regret the error.
