The best of Culinary Cinema will be curated by the Toronto International Film Festival's (TIFF) Food on Film Series with specialty screenings running from March to the end of June. We talked with the Executive VP of the James Beard Foundation to learn more about the festival.
Islamic history is replete with pioneering inventions and discoveries, many of which are ingrained in modern society.
In the name of beautifying streets and the desire to create urban promenades, we often end up with poorly planned arterials that subject pedestrians and others to unnecessary safety risks. Look no further than the Front Street at Union Station in Toronto, where every morning a flood of commuters inundates the neighbouring streets.
If you are fortyish lesbian living in Toronto who's been to bed with every other fortyish lesbian living in Toronto, some of whom reside with cats, you can finally experience yourself on screen thanks with Portrait of a Serial Monogamist.
Across Canada, our elected leaders are rewriting laws to accommodate Uber, while largely refusing to act when it or its drivers break the law. In no other industry would it be acceptable for a company to continue breaking the law while the government fiddles.
According to a new study, when it comes to your romantic desirability, your choice in vehicle doesn't matter -- at least not in the way that you'd think. As it turns out, breaking the bank on an exotic car won't increase your chances of being lucky in love, as the majority of Canadians (51 per cent) find mainstream brands, such as Ford and Toyota, most attractive for a potential mate to drive -- even over luxury and exotic cars.
With a quality education system and reputation as a safe and multi-cultural country, Canada is rated at the top of the list of places for international students to study. Canada is indeed a very open and welcoming community for international students of all nationalities; however, some cities offer a more seamless transition than others.
By this time next week, you will no longer be able to buy a home in Canada priced at more than $500,000 with a five-per-cent down payment. Big deal or no deal? It seems to depend on what market you're in.
As an executive chef at four restaurants, V-Day allows me to get playful in the kitchen. A Valentine's dinner needs to be pretty -- a visual feast as well as culinary. It should quench one kind of hunger, and hopefully replace it with another. Consider food and drink part of foreplay. It's all part of the seduction.
Players and celebrities will be flocking to the city to take part in festivities and hang out in the swankiest of restaurants. While we can't guarantee where you'll get the best sightings, these are some of the local restaurants that are known hang outs.
Opt for a few aces up your sleeves this Valentine's Day. To add some context to this statement, I reference a timeless adage: "The way to someone's heart is through their stomach." There's no denying the truth in those words. Attaining culinary success in spades can guarantee you affection in return.
Over the past decade, Canada has seen a proliferation of high quality, thoughtful research on homelessness. We now know that homelessness is caused by a combination of individual and systemic factors from unemployment and disability, to lack of coordinated services and a hostile housing market. While the solutions to homelessness are complex, the cause is simple: a lack of affordable housing.
Working out with your partner is a great way to spend quality time together, be motivated to actually hit the gym and have a ton of fun. Research shows that working out with your partner will motivate you to work out longer and harder. So, grab your loved one and do something good for each other.
Canada's largest city has a world-class problem with poverty, and yet we hope that maybe, just maybe, it will go away. Rest assured it's not. Far from an old-school approach to budgeting, we need leadership and new approaches to revenue generation unless we want to be paying for the growing costs of poverty for years to come.
Like most people that call this city home, I am deeply troubled by Sunday's shooting deaths in Toronto's Chinatown and the eight other gun-related deaths the city saw in January. This is obviously unacceptable, and police must be supported in their efforts to investigate and prosecute those responsible for these horrific crimes. That being said, most people would be hesitant to draw any clear conclusions about why we have seen a high number of gun crimes over the past month. Mike McCormack, president of the Toronto Police Association, the union that represents police officers, feels differently.
The MRI showed that the number of lesions on his brain had doubled, and that the medication was not working. I immediately started to tear up and the genius doctor looked at me and then at my husband and said, "Graeme, I believe I have said something to upset your wife." This doctor was seriously intuitive.
