So for those salivating for a Toronto reset, I suggest a more modest brand refresh -- one where an asterisk is added to our otherwise great city.

The City of Toronto's adventure with the all night contemporary art event, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, came about when, at the invitation of the City of Paris, we decided to present a one-off edition in 2006.

Teleporting Chinese tourists. Masturbating astronauts. Death by duct tape. Semen-filled puppets. Possible time travel. That one guy from Corner Gas. I was at a loss for words, and kept looking around to see if someone, anyone, was as confused and enraged as I was, but they were speechless in the face of True Art. I call bullshit.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Calgary 2012 grow from even before its official inception..
