Maple Leafs Fight Snoop Dogg Over Trademark, Assault by Pee, and Another Startup Leaves Toronto

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

  • While the Toronto Maple Leafs lose to just about everybody, they’re hoping to beat Snoop Dogg. Snoop recent created a logo for his “Leafs by Snoop” cannabis line, but Maple Leafs Sports and Entertainment filed an opposition to the trademark, claiming it looks too much like their new throwback logo. While trademark law is typically very boring, presumably many journalists heads exploded with the possibilities for stupid puns in this story.

  • It’s bad to pee on people. Everyone should know that. It’s especially bad to throw your—or anybody else’s—urine on someone while you’re on the Gardiner. But that happened. Police say that while one driver was stopped in their car on the recently construction-free highway, a driver rolled up and threw a cup of urine into and on top of the car of another driver. The pee bandit still at large.
  • In keeping with a long tradition, another Toronto startup has left the 6ix and moved westward to Silicon Valley, hemorrhaging some jobs along the way. Joist has left Toronto, but left two-thirds of its employees, roughly 60 people, have been laid off and left behind. The app, which helps contractors manage, estimate, and invoice their customers, says it’s making the move to tap the bigger market base stateside. To be fair, if there’s one thing Silicon Valley is known for, it’s construction companies.
