A new interdisciplinary research initiative, simply titled the "India Innovation Institute", was launched at the University of Toronto to explore the parameters around innovation in India, with the role played by the diaspora central to its scope of research.
There's a project called At Home/Chez Soi, run by the Mental Health Commission of Canada. The five-year project has housed about 1,000 homeless people with mental illness in cities across Canada since it began. At Home is based on the idea that people should receive housing first, instead of waiting until they're deemed ready to re-enter society. Researchers say many participants are thriving.
The Red Carpet is buzzing. Flashbulbs popping, interviewers shouting questions, fans waving signs and asking for autographs; it feels like early September at TIFF. Except this is late fall, and the people walking into the Bloor Hot Docs Cinema aren't Hollywood Starlets and Studs, but ordinary people from the community.
Twenty-five years ago, Toronto was described as "the city that works." Few people believe that today. Toronto is lucky enough to be grappling with growth that out-paces almost every other city on the continent. The conversation should focus on what this future looks like and what kind of buildings we want to make up our communities.
Art Basel is set to whip Miami into a sea-foamy art-star laden froth these next few days, but art on the street is the unofficial engine that will be ...
People talking about this city's buildings and what they mean to us. In a city where the landscape is constantly changing, there just aren't too many of these stories around. There are bright lights and tall buildings -- all the stuff big cities are made of -- but stories that shed light on our city's past and provide us with some common narrative seem pretty hard to come by. Even harder to keep around.
It was another busy week. The local news captivated me with football, mayorality disgrace, stolen toys and Justin Bieber's wardrobe malfunctions. All train wrecks.
If you're from some non-Toronto region of this country, you may best know Mayor Rob Ford as that guy who stars in all the breathlessly outraged stories your hipster Ontario friends post on Facebook -- not anymore. On Monday he was removed from office. Perhaps he should consider running for the Green Party. By my estimation we can thus anticipate a Green majority government sometime around... 6632 A.D.
According to Bason, taking off from Tuesday to Tuesday is your best bet.
What an exciting time to be a political addict in Canada. Who says Canadian politics is boring? People who aren't paying attention, that's who. First, the Mayor of Toronto, Rob Ford, was removed from office. Second, we find out that Mark Carney got headhunted to the U.K. And elections, you know, the best sport ever? There were three! And they weren't boring, at all.
Mr. Ford should not be treated differently than anyone else. I am not implying that he should be above the law. We should be fair when applying the severity of our legal system. Other politicians who have been involved in much more serious offences should have been treated as such. With respect, I consider the sentence against Rob Ford to be a little too harsh.
The Argonauts and Stampeders will battle it out on the gridiron for CFL supremacy on Sunday, but which of the finalists in the 100th Grey Cup game hails from a better city for travellers? Vacay.ca looked at how Toronto and Calgary stacked up against each other in seven categories. Here are the results...
I won entrance into the pre-shop for the highly coveted Margiela collection at H&M the night before it opened to the public. We had four in our group, but it was everyone for themselves on the second floor. I did quite well climbing through racks and saying "sorry" compulsively to trick people into thinking I was polite and not a blood-hungry Margiela fiend.
The Toronto Blue Jays pulled off a historic 12-player deal with the Florida Marlins. As last evening wore on, the hype and hoopla on Sports Talk Radio in The Big Smoke was ratcheted. Ah, but Toronto being Toronto, all that giddiness, all that love, all that manic mirth was short-lived. By the time I turned on Sports Talk Radio this morning at 6 a.m., confidence in the trade had turned to caution.
