With the new baseball season now under way, fans across the country are looking forward to an exciting run. Over the course of the season, the Blue Jays will travel approximately 45,000 km, spending a total of 83 days on the road, 90 hours on planes, and collectively take up 4,000 hotel rooms in cities across Canada and the U.S.
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really want to compete in the new global economy we need to innovate; sticking our head in the sand or relying on outdated statutes doesn't cut it.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.
The rail-link will connect Canada's two busiest transport hubs: Union Station and Toronto Pearson International Airport. Despite the high-speed connector between the two busiest hubs, transport authorities expect only 5,000 daily riders on the UP Express. The King Streetcar, in comparison, carries in excess of 65,000 daily riders.
Toronto's Polict Chief-designate Mark Saunders is on record as supporting carding as a "valuable tool." The policy is racist, wrong and reflects poorly on our collective public ideals. If he continues to endorse racial profiling, as a black citizen himself, his historic achievement would be in name only.
Konstantine Malishevski started training as a tailor at 17 and, after 28 years in the business, he now heads up the custom design and made-to-measure department at GOTSTYLE in Toronto. And he is very passionate about it.
In honor of the second child of Prince William and the Duchess of Cambridge, Kate Middleton, we've rounded up up the favorite hotels of the British royal family -- from the spot where Kate spent her wedding eve, to the Queen's go-to Caribbean getaway.
I rarely miss either the Sundance or Toronto film festivals each year -- but my relationship with the Tribeca film fest has been spottier. Partly that's due to scheduling: For a variety of reasons, I've been out of town for large chunks of the festival each of the past couple of years.
he Toronto Police Services board approved and endorsed a policy of racial profiling -- carding -- to keep track of residents who look like me last night. From now onward, any Toronto Police officer can arbitrarily stop me without informing me of my rights, when no specific offence has not been committed and I am not considered a suspect. If refusing to reappoint Councillor Michael Thompson, the lone black member of the Toronto Police board, was not enough, Mayor John Tory voted to endorse the carding policy. I am disappointed and we should all be outraged.
