Every weekday’s end, we collect just about everything you ought to care about or ought not to miss.
- Every other year Toronto Fashion Week rolls along and collectively Torontonians say, “meh, maybe next time.” Well, all that apathy has a cost: Toronto Fashion Week is no more. Organizers say the plug was pulled due to a lack of local support. So shame on all us schlubs who prefer Netflix to Fashion Week.
- If you’re making a big purchase, you always want to make sure you know what you’re getting. That’s why home inspections are so important. At least they’re important to people outside of Toronto. Since the real-estate market is so piping hot, some buyers in bidding wars have started to skip the conditions of a sale, including the crucial inspection. Which is one of things that’s probably fine most of the time, but when it’s wrong, it costs massive sums of cash. Just another day in the rational, totally secure Toronto housing market.
- Toronto is not doing enough to protect cyclists, says at least one City Councillor, and literally every cyclist that puts themselves through a sphincter-clenching ride to work everyday. Paula Fletcher (Ward 30, Toronto-Danforth) says that especially as the City is expanding bicycle rental programs, and more and more people are choosing to ride rather than drive to get around the city, the “share the road” policy just isn’t cutting it. Motivations might come from the 71 year-old cyclist who was killed in a collision on Tuesday.
