We know the dangers of having too many choices -- but what about not having any? Who in their "right mind" (you might wonder how many of "those" people are mentally sound and might be surprised to know the vast majority are) would sleep on a bench in "last seasons" (off-trend or simply off-prudence) clothes in freezing cold weather?
Vacay.ca's travel journalists placed Toronto at No. 1 because of the Pan Am Games, the new Union-Pearson Express train and the 40th edition of the Toronto International Film Festival.
What constitutes a great party? That's entirely subjective, of course. However, Vacay.ca has put together a shortlist of where to go -- whether you're a singleton, coupled up or just part of one big happy family. No matter who you are these ideas will make sure you have fun.
It's below freezing, there's no end to the falling white powder and, to boot, slogging through slush isn't your idea of a dream holiday shopping romp. Enter Toronto's acclaimed PATH.
Amidst the flurry of lavish holiday parties and last minute holiday preparations eight Toronto chefs gathered last night at Templar Kitchen to host an event in support of The Children's Breakfast Club.
Hotel search trivago.ca analyzed every hotel within two kilometers of Canada's five most notoriously weather-delayed airports, to help grounded travellers stay in the ideal airport hotel during the nightmare of holiday delays.
In real estate, the Days on Market statistic is meant to measure how many days a property takes to sell. This is a very useful piece of information, and if used properly can say a lot about an individual property, a neighbourhood, or even the entire real estate market. The problem is that this statistic is skewed by a practice that some agents employ where if a listing doesn't sell quickly, they deactivate the listing and then reactivate the listing the next day.
When Warring came out, I thought it was going to be the record for us. How naïve I was. Warring doesn't have a conventional single: the songs are too complex, the choruses aren't big enough or well enough defined and the lyrics are too abstract for commercial rock radio. I even remember having that clichéd conversation where someone said "I don't hear a single."
Unlike a New Year's Eve party that lasts a few hours and then disappears after the stroke of midnight like fairy godmother magic, I guarantee my high is going to last beyond one night.
Sitting in a courtyard on the grounds of La Mamounia Hotel in Marrakech, filmmaker Ritesh Batra admits that one of the best parts of being a member of the jury for the competition at the Marrakech International Film Festival is actually getting the chance to watch movies.
Six years ago, my husband Matthew was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiform, the most common and deadliest of brain cancers. As Matthew's primary caregiver, I've come to recognize that coping in the face of a terminal illness is a learned skill, and sometimes it takes a lot of trial and error to figure out what works.
My point is simply this: Many want change in Toronto politics, but unless we start changing the way that media covers local council races, the same style of candidates will continue to be elected, we can no longer be allergic to the potential of something better, unlikely or fear something different in such a diverse city.
For the last six weeks, deep in the B.C. legislature, eight MLAs have been toiling away at trying to set spending limits for municipal parties and their candidates in 2018, as well as third parties. It's been an oddly quiet discussion, given that their recommendations might restore a modicum of faith in local democracy. Might.
There has never been a more critical and opportune time to take control of Toronto's development plans. Our city is in the middle of a development boom, yet we face a housing crisis. Despite this grim reality, there is still the opportunity to do better for our city. In fact, we are well-positioned to build a beautiful city that is vibrant, inclusive, and more mindful of the environment.
In essence, carrying anything and being Black will get you killed these days. Perhaps instead of DWB ("Driving while Black"), we need "Living While Black," because it seems to be an increasing struggle to do anything without getting killed -- even for children.
I won't go into the details of black groups being marginalized at the hands of white people who dominate the "center," because if you're smart enough to think that you fooled us into feeling remorse for "leaving you out" during the protest in Toronto, then you're smart enough to do a Google search to figure out historical black oppression and its endless contemporary reproductions.
