For those who celebrate Halloween via drinking, is the holiday celebrated the weekend before the mid-week holiday or after? I'd like to know. In the news today: Part of a document outlining the investigation of Alessandro Lisi's arrest to be revealed today, garbage collection fees set for charities and religious institutions, the fate of Bixi remains unknown, Casa Loma will be operated by Liberty Entertainment Group for the next 20 years, and Porter gets some international recognition.

Fact: A random internet site said that a cup of hot water with lemon in the morning is just as effective as a cup of coffee. Hippies. In the news: some city councillors have opinions about the mayor's writing character references for criminals and alleged criminals; the TTC is getting crazy with new names for its subway lines; repairs to the Gardiner Expressway can be expected for the next bazillion years; and get your flu shot if you're between the ages of 60 and 65.

Is anyone else super disoriented right now? How is it Wednesday? How? And in the news today, a whole lotta news about the news itself: the Ontario Press Council has ruled that the Globe and Mail and the Toronto Star were not in the wrong for stories published about the brothers Ford and various (alleged) scandals; City staff are recommending against burying part of the Gardiner Expressway; and the question of making public information police have on Alexander Lisi's acquaintances will soon go before a Superior Court.

Good evening, and welcome to Newsstand. In today's program, news: the Toronto Catholic School Board is reassessing its volunteer screening process, the TCHC investigates shady insurance claims allegedly made by former staff, city council will choose the person to fill the vacant Ward 3 seat, the Toronto District School Board chooses a new director, and Alice Munro wins the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Has anyone else noticed that this week is completely endless? Onto the news: Metrolinx is investigating the aggressive behaviour of the Mayor's director of operations and logistics (you may remember him from such incidents as ALWAYS BEING REALLY ANGRY), a new task force will report on how to raise money for added city transit, the TCHC continues to be riddled with problems, and the elephants adjust to their new transport crates.

If you're feeling punchy this morning, it's probably because you didn't get enough sleep last night. What are you going to do about it? Probably nothing. And in the news: city council may vote on allowing jets at the island airport before any hard evidence comes out; Police Chief Bill Blair's time is up to present a report on the shooting of Sammy Yatim—but one probably won't be available for another month; the elephants are, at long last, moving to Florida California to retire in peace; and Councillor Josh Matlow proposes that we get free, city-wide Wi-Fi.

Ditch those fall fashions again today, 'cause it's another scorcher out there. In the news: Metrolinx's chair puts out a public letter defending a shortened Scarborough subway line, outlook not good for the Sam the Record Man sign, the City's freedom of information department is relying on the honour system with regard to the mayor's request backlog, and the St. Clair streetcar line turns one hundred (and she's still got it).


Newsstand: September 5, 2013

Get out your balaclava 'cause the temperature's dropped. And in the news: The councillor whose ward saw the tragic death of a Grade 10 student by a large truck is proposing banning big trucks from school zones; Billy Bishop airport actually sees a majority of leisure, rather than business, travellers; Constable Tony Vella is considering putting his name forward to be appointed Doug Holyday's replacement, and it's Sam the Record Man('s son) vs. Ryerson University.
