Saying goodbye to summer is never easy. Luckily, the Big Smoke has lots of reasons to fall in love with fall. From learning like the kiddos to loving on local treats, here are 10 terrific reasons to cozy up to Toronto this autumn.
These five easy life hacks will provide you with simple strategies to shift your energy and focus from work and business to love and passion. They don't require a lot of hard work, but they do require serious commitment that I know you have.

One week before my scheduled operation I was told that I had been bumped for a situation that presented a "higher level of urgency." They had just added almost eight weeks to my wait time for reasons that were opaque, at best, and without logic to me. Why did this happen? In the end, I got no real answers, only rumours about parental leave (nothing sudden or unforeseen about that) and other factors that may or may not have been part of the equation. So, beyond my personal experience, the real question is: Are Canadian wait times for hip replacement justified or could they be shortened?
Have you ever told yourself, "If I can just get through the next day/week/month/year, things will calm down and I'll be less busy?" Trust me on this -- you're never going to find time for a fitness program. If you want time, you have to make it, then take it.

Ashley Madison had the honesty to say it is for married people to have affairs as opposed to encourage married and partnered people to pretend they're single. And for that their customers have had their personal information, including apparently credit card information, released?
A lot of people ask me why I'm still on ODSP (Ontario Disability Support Program). People think maybe I'm lazy or just don't want to work. I want to work. I want to work so badly and live with that freedom and independence I had before, but I can't. No one wants to hire someone with a grade six education who can't understand all the things they should.
In our effort to gain rights for individuals, one significant collective was left out of the equation: family. But change is afoot. Something new and exciting is happening in feminism and it's about children and their care.

For the first time since touch-'em-all Joe Carter hit his historic three-run, walk-off homer to lift the locals to their second-straight world championship nearly a quarter-century ago, your Toronto Blue Jays may just (gasp) find themselves in the World Series.

This week, I'm celebrating Women's Equality Day and continuing the conversation when we not only talk about the issue of women's equality but how we can reach equality for all.
