Are you suffering from some serious spring fever? Channel that newfound energy, get creative and express yourself. Here are nine fine Toronto places to let it all hang out through art, song or some other wild and weird avenues.
In the 2014 municipal election, I should have voted for Olivia Chow. I voted for John Tory and that was a mistake.Citizens like me and many others made him look smart, progressive and moderate. Sadly, he is not. Essentially, we became the human face of a man whose ideals are wrong for Toronto and Torontonians. We should have known better. I voted for Tory but I certainly did not endorse a second-class citizenship for myself. Why is he endorsing public policies that Torontonians, for the most part, do not want? Why are we, our fellow black and brown citizens, allowed to be treated in such a way?
In the absence of community support, members of our communities could end up in the prison industrial complex for asserting their right to remain silent and walk away from these non-criminal encounters. The cops are aware of the fact that the people can refuse to speak with them and are free to walk away, if they are not being detained or arrested.
In order to unlock the grand potential of Toronto's non-core markets to create affordable and vibrant communities and to ensure everyone is able to share in the economic and health benefits of walkable and livable neighborhoods, the city needs investment.
Canadian cities have enjoyed a steady population growth rate, which is significantly higher in suburban municipalities than that in central or urban municipalities.

The thing about a vacation is that it's meant to be relaxing and fun. But that's not the reality for many of us when it comes to coordinating a family trip (ahem, March break??). We recently had the pleasure of enjoying a proper vacation. Well, technically speaking, it was a staycation. If this sounds appealing to you, here are some great local options of hotels that really roll out the red carpet for you and your little ones.
Toronto Maple Leafs, how did your confidence dissipate so thoroughly? Is it possible the challenge to the Toronto Maple Leafs does not only start and stop in the dressing room, during practices and throughout a game? Might it be the real trouble emanates from the psyche of the town in which you play and where I live.
Season after season begins with hope and promise, but ends with disappointment. The hopelessness of being a Leaf fan may continue to affect the franchise's followers, and therefore the bottom line, unless they look at alternative ways to mend that relationship. Building trust through social media is the best way to reach the most powerful fan demographic to date.
CMW's music component is massive (hundreds of bands and more than 60 venues) but the schedule spans more than a week and more than just music. But the festival also squeezes in award shows, comedy and film festivals, trade shows and a comprehensive lineup of industry conferences.
After enduring a long, brutally cold winter, nothing indicates summer more for Canadians than their first cocktail outside on a patio. "Patio weather" has not only become a common phrase for us Canadians but it's actually developed into its own season.
Walking never got any respect: it was slow, unsexy and boring. Only losers walked. But today, walking is what the cool kids do, whether they're sta...
Now onto the film itself. When I tell you that a film based on voice recordings and archival photography, interwoven with touching cinematic portraits of the soldiers today can indeed be a spellbinding masterpiece, believe me.
If Toronto and Canada really want to compete in the new global economy we need to innovate; sticking our head in the sand or relying on outdated statutes doesn't cut it. If there are legitimate concerns about specific facets of these new business models, then legislators need to meet with the firms and address them. It's time to get on with it.
When I'm in New York, the Tribeca screenings have to get in line with all the other things on my calendar -- and most of those take precedence over spending Saturday or Sunday at a multiplex in Battery Park City watching films I probably wouldn't review even if they were released.
