So the next time something happens on the streetcar -- because it will -- find something beautiful to see. No, it won't solve the communication and planning problems that create unannounced short turns and painful detours, or the management and electoral problems that make Queen Street at rush hour possible. But it might ease a few things onboard, while we wait.
On Tuesday, Leafs president Brendan Shanahan fired assistant general managers Claude Loiselle and Dave Poulin, and hired Kyle Dubas as assistant gen...
Jamie Heath simply wants to drag John Tory through the mud by any means -- to the benefit of Ms. Chow. This, of late, is a consistent "best practice" of many official agents in both the Chow and Ford camps. The premises of his argument however, do deserve scrutiny.
Mr. Ford and Mr. Tory share something else. Neither wants to work to the plan we have, preferring instead to draw new lines on maps. It's never easy to decipher what, precisely, Mr. Tory believes today, but it seems he no longer supports the Sheppard or Finch LRT's. And he certainly no longer supports the subway relief line that is the TTC's top priority, which is odd because getting it built allegedly propelled him to run.
Food. Some see it as a functional thing. Some see it as a ritual. Some see it as a way to break bread connect with family, with friends, with stranger...
I think back to the ice storm and realize it has killed something I so loved, a sound that soothed me; a sight that reminded me of the freedom nature lends to our lives. How was I to know that with the magnificence of the ice storm, destruction ran ramped in ways I had considered, in ways that would change things forever outside my window, for me and for others?
Our interview was scheduled on the same day as the Mayor's Arts Lunch, and a day before her opening reception. We had an HBO documentary crew, a DOP, a secondary videographer, handlers, a boom operator and a 20-minute hard stop. Within those 20 minutes, I hoped to demystify an icon.
On Canadian Rivers Day, I joined my neighbours to learn more about Toronto's largest watershed, the Humber, thanks to the Loblaw Water Fund.
Led by Dykes on Bikes, the World Dyke March on June 28 included a rainbow of marchers from women's health collectives and craftivists, to Canadian unions and individual dykes. Some marched for politics. Some just for fun.
Anyone who has been down to the Harbourfront recently knows that Queens Quay is under construction. The streetcar tracks are being replaced and Waterfront Toronto is building a new tree-lined promenade that will be spectacular once complete, but creates traffic chaos in the meantime. Although I expected the construction on Queens Quay, nothing prepared me for the trifecta of traffic interruptions that followed. Traffic was already heavy because it was the season home opener for the Argos. That would have been fine, if the rest of the transportation network had been working.
Today, the Earth got a little hotter, and a little more crowded. Daily Climate Change: Global Map of Unusual Temperatures, July 5, 2014 H...
Canada celebrates its 147th birthday on July 1 and Vacay.ca has team members in the nation's four largest metropolitan areas. Here's what's happening on Canada Day in Toronto, Montreal, Calgary and Vancouver.
Some transit experts argue that commute times by high-speed rail transit are shorter. It is true for individual trips, but not for the entire communities. Commuters in transit-dependent communities, with ready access to subways, can take faster transit to their destinations, however shorter duration trips are enjoyed only by those whose trip lengths are shorter. With $29 billion in transport infrastructure spending already earmarked for Ontario, Steven Del Duca and Kathleen Wynne, will receive tons of unsolicited advice. They should, however, base their investment decisions on sound analysis rather than conjecture.
Toronto is more than Ford Nation, true, but it is also so much more than the Core. Let me tell you about my Toronto. Toronto is getting a Jamaican beef patty on a fresh portuguese bun at Eglinton and Oakwood. Toronto is getting congee rice porridge in North Scarborough. Toronto is so much more than the Core or the car-centric suburbs.
There's a lot of speculation that the Ottawa Senators and Toronto Maple Leafs will be active this free agent season. Both teams failed to make the playoffs last year and will likely pursue new players to get them back into contention. But taxes can be a roadblock to attracting new talent.
Luke Hayes-Alexander has been dubbed the "boy-wonder" of the culinary world, and, while this title might be cheesy, it's hard to describe Luke any other way. At age 11, Luke devoted himself to cooking so intensely that by age 15 he was executive chef of his own restaurant, Luke's Gastronomy in Kingston, ON.
