Except for a couple of sojourns to the Caribbean, I spent the entire year's travels within Canada, exploring its abundance of wonders. Although my trip to Sonora Resort stands at the top, it was far from a singular highlight. Here's my exhaustive list of the best Canadian travel destinations, from resorts to restaurants, of the past year.
Power going out at the Super Bowl; Maker's Mark announcing its plans to dilute its whiskey; the woman who hid under her desk to avoid a TV reporter; Manti Te'o's fake girlfriend and a Canadian mayor's crack-laced meltdown. All great, but not Sponge-worthy.
2012 was my first year of exploring abandoned places. I had also been following along with the rooftopping craze. Finding myself obsessed with wanting to try this, in November of 2012 I started researching and seeing what I could learn and where I should go.
Have you noticed what's happening at airports? Gone are the days where your only choice is grabbing unhealthy, fat-laden food or having to settle for pre-packaged on-board food options as you make a mad dash for a flight.

After years of searching, I found the perfect hangover cure. It wasn't the hair of the dog that bit me, and it wasn't any sort of nasty concoction borne out of my medicine cabinet. It was, in fact, a facial. And I think I finally understand what all the hype was about.
There they sit facing each other in Toronto City Hall -- two very rich men of much more than considerable girth, strangely similar, radiating mutual admiration, screw-you arrogance and otherworldly chutzpah. This odd couple comes together last Monday on Vision's The Zoomer. It's never the widely advertised interview promised, because the Baron doesn't know how to interview. Instead, it's a chat between two obviously misunderstood innocents. So no tough, probing questions from the Baron to the Mayor along the lines of "have you no shame, sir? No decency?"

As a critic who regularly attends a couple of film festivals a year I average seeing four films a day and have been known to see as many as six in one day. So I have to admit I appreciate the more casual approach to scheduling at the Dubai International Film Festival.
On behalf of taxpayers who would rather see our money go to real transit strategies, the Canadian Taxpayers Federation says "let Bixi fail." We've compiled ten reasons for why the City of Toronto should put the brakes on the Bixi bikes bailout.
Without a chance to brush up on my poor speaking or understanding of French, I was whisked away from LA to Montréal, Canada after an invite came into my inbox to attend the 3rd annual world music conference/festival Mundial Montréal.
The newly announced Amazon PrimeAir drone concept is essentially a mini-flying airplane that will deliver small purchases to your door in about half an hour. The commercialization of drones continues a micro-trend that is changing how we live and interact with the world around us for the better.
The sound of a man yelling erupted from the street. He was in a spotless Volkswagen Jetta, braying at oncoming drivers -- with the black barrel of a handgun resting on the driver's side window. I couldn't quite make out the faces of the drivers who took turns, with rather acute discomfort, as his target.
McGuinty sincerely believed in cancelling the gas plants. But he feared losing seats in Mississauga and Oakville. So he abandoned his principles for votes. That is pandering. What Ford did in supporting subways is not pandering. That is true democracy, a concept obviously lost on the Toronto Star, which appears to prefer rule by the privileged unelected few. And policymaking by non-partisan so-called experts, aka Metrolinx, who are clearly insensitive to the actual people for which they are working.
Rob Ford, should you be legally allowed to run for mayor again, though I may not have the courage of many of my neighbours to cast a vote in your direction, I most certainly will watch delightedly as you sweat your way through a seemingly endless string of awkward hallway press scrums and barely-veiled bigotry. You have taught me to accept what I do not understand.
