With E3 in the rearview and VRLA on the horizon, it's hard to imagine carving out any extra mental space for yet another conference, yet another round...
While some associations feel that the Ontario Residential Tenancies Act currently favours tenants (although associations representing tenants will disagree), there are proposed changes being debated that could shift the power back into the hands of the landlord.
The stars seem to be aligning for the Toronto Maple Leafs as they head into their 100th anniversary season. The team won the NHL lottery and will have the first draft pick on Friday. In coach Mike Babcock, GM Lou Lamoriello and President Brendan Shanahan they have arguably the most impressive (and expensive) management cadre in NHL history.

Landlords normally know what they want -- a good, clean tenant that pays on time and doesn't destroy the rental unit. You know what you want if you're looking for your own place. But when you're selling yourself as a roommate, it's a little harder.
When it's showtime and we go live, we're ready to follow the master plan put together by our incredible production crew, but life doesn't always follow the exact plan... and sometimes that can lead to magical moments.
I crushed on guys who were "out of my league." I saw others get attention while I was ignored or rejected. I felt bad about my body, which was mostly fat, with little or no visible muscle. My face was pretty and my mannerisms were soft, leaving me pretty low in the hierarchy. So I took action.
With the Canadian dollar still well below par compared to the U.S. one, it's a perfect time for Americans to head north to Canada's largest urban city...

Since opening its doors in March this year, Cresta has sought to introduce Torontonians to a new concept. Rory West, the head bartender and sommelier, informs me that Cresta is the only restaurant in the city that designs the food menu around the wine list -- not the other way around.
Housing and rental markets aren't quite as clear cut as we'd like to believe. Which means if you're looking to live in Vancouver, New York, Los Angeles or other so-called "cost-prohibitive locations," there may be more options than you realize.
I was roughly six or seven years old and I had been playing hockey and baseball for a couple of years already. What I couldn't get out of my head was how I never thought of it as someone "letting me" play sports. In my six or seven-year-old mind, it was more of a "who's going to stop me" situation.
A vote by Toronto's Economic Development Committee has sent Toronto staff off to study the potential addition of a night mayor into the city's cadre of public officials. This is just the latest in a series of decisions as Toronto endeavours to refine its image as a Music City and its interactions with actors in Toronto's internationally-recognized music scene.
It's June and school will soon be out for the summer. What better time to teach your kids about... real estate? Why? There's actually more than 500,000 reasons to do so. The number is really 508,097 -- as in dollars, the average price of a home in Canada as of April 2016, according to the Canadian Real Estate Association. This represents a 13.1-per-cent year-over-year price gain. We need to educate our kids about the realities of property ownership before it overwhelms them.
To some, it's the shared economy disrupting the old business models. To others, it's the gig economy that denies workers full-time hours and a living wage. Regardless of its name, the new economy is disrupting more than the established business norms. It is forcing grown-ups to live with their parents and is likely causing the decline in public transit ridership.
I thought living in the frenetic hustle of downtown would make me less patient and desensitized -- the truth is since moving down here, I've become more empathetic and aware of the marginalized population and my role in that marginalization.
