Toronto Police Raid Dispensaries, Dufferin Street Not as Bad as Last Year, and Produce on the TTC

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

  • Toronto Police have confirmed that they are raiding marijuana dispensaries. The operation has been dubbed “Project Claudia,” probably because “Project Cannabis go bye-bye” doesn’t sound as cool. Police have been spotted at dispensaries across the city, including two in Kensington Market. More details on Project Claudia will be released tomorrow morning during a press conference, but until then, we can only assume the whole operation will continue to be scorned and ridiculed on Twitter.
  • Dufferin Street continues to improve, or maybe other roads in Ontario are just getting worse. The Canadian Automobile Association released the results to its annual worst roads in Ontario poll, and Dufferin fell to number nine this year. For three straight years, Dufferin topped the list, until last year when it fell to third. Most of the roads on the list exist in smaller communities, and the CAA says the poll shows more attention needs to be paid to small municipalities.
  • The TTC, along with Toronto based non-profit FoodShare, and Toronto Public Health, have launched pop-up shops that will sell produce at three subway stations today. The shops will operate from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. twice a week at Downsview, Kipling and Victoria Park stations, with the hope of spreading to other stations soon. We’re looking forward to grabbing some produce during a delay.
