Finally, Friday! It's been a long week, huh? In the news: the TDSB freeze is lifted, cutting water consumption has a downside, Vaughan's watching out for your pets, construction on the rapid link to Pearson should soon be underway, Toronto's getting a world-class forensics facility, and the bar was, in fact, raised.

Here's hoping for a drier day today, huh? In the news: we got a little bit of rain yesterday, the passengers of a certain GO train had a hell of an evening commute, and a celebrated U of T prof faces shocking charges.
Why do short weeks always seem so long? In the news: a couple of councillors have their eyes on Queen's Park, Toronto's elephants could be taking a road trip this fall, Toronto police will look into tracking doorings, and a Blue Jays catcher has some opinions and isn't afraid to share them.
Welcome to a very Bathurst-centric round-up! In the news: Very few are sold on a Walmart near Kensington, Bathurst is longer than you probably realized, summer means stink on King West, and Ford inspires fiction.
Friday of a long weekend! Is there anything sweeter? In the news: Ford may not have gotten much notice on those funding cuts after all, a 2008 explosion sees a guilty verdict, firefighters get a pay hike, Stintz gets a cycling ticket, another MPP resigns, and a Brampton baller makes history.
Careful in the heat today, folks! We're in for another scorcher. In the news: the Fords want to nix streetcars, another MPP resigns, public housing is in crisis, expanded booze sales would benefit consumers and the government, and the Jays stay hot.
Welcome back, summer! It's nice to (officially) see you again. In the news: the city's out a big chunk of provincial cash, Blair defends his silence after raids, cops are upping outreach near Dixon Road, and a newly-opened federal riding is already attracting political aspirations.
Where'd the sun go, guys? In the news: police release more info on Project Traveller, the mayor is still making up his mind about security, university students are bummed out, the measles have hit Burlington, and the Jays rack up another win.
Can you believe it's already the middle of June? We really cannot. In the news: it apparently took a flying frostee to convince the mayor to hire security, a Bay Street lawyer helped the government turf the gas plants, and the MMVAs were exactly what you would expect them to be.
Friday! And just when the week was starting to get interesting. In the news: Toronto homebuyers are paying a lot of government fees, it's decision day for Hazel McCallion in court, your weekend travel plans are saved, and Dalton McGuinty gets a sizeable sendoff.
This weather makes us feel like we took a time warp back to March. We don't like it. In the news: Ford shuffles his executive, the mayor gets a legal victory, casino consultants are expensive, and fake turf remains controversial.
We miss summer, guys. Why so dreary this morning? In the news: the city's first dedicated bike lanes open, two city councillors ask for angel cradles, a key McGuinty staffer's emails were among those deleted, and what if I want to wear my booty shorts to work?
We're missing that sunshine from earlier this week. Could use some of Monday's weather for this weekend! In the news: a female resident of the house tied to the Rob Ford scandal has a past drug conviction, Chief Bill Blair gave his police forces a videotaped earful, Ombudsperson Crean says the TCHC has a history of "callous" actions, and the University of Toronto is redesigning a historic building that currently sits empty.
