We have a pent up, unsatisfied demand for cycling in Toronto. And what a good thing that is -- less pollution, less noise, healthier population, less congestion, less carbon and happier people. So why can't we get it right? While we rip up, at great cost, the one real bike lane that was created and sit and debate whether to build a subway or LRT for the 47th time, bikers are getting killed and congestion becomes unbearable.
The Toronto Maple Leafs have blasted out of the blocks like world-beaters -- currently sporting a sparkling 6-1 record whilst sitting alluringly atop the National Hockey League's Atlantic Division -- and Leaf fans are naturally feeling all the appropriate emotions of supporters of a squad that's really on a roll. That is anxiousness, apprehension, fear, dread and paranoia.
He says "You don't believe I'm a nice guy? Here. Look at this." And that's the moment I knew...I have to get the FACK out of here! He's showing us pictures of him getting beat up by the cops! I don't know why he would show us these to prove how "nice" he is.
Toronto has launched a long-term, fully integrated, renovation project aimed at bringing back life and business to its beleaguered waterfront. Unlike other rehab development projects of the past, this one will offer a new wrinkle: An ultra high-speed fiber optic pipe with an IBM custom-made portal.
Les Misérables is a bonafide phenomenon of the stage. That 25th anniversary tour is the basis for this new Canadian production that Mirvish is currently presenting in Toronto at the Princess of Wales Theatre. This new version is completely re-thought and re-designed.
I've been doing a lot of flying in and out of Toronto recently, and using the city's convenient two-pronged Billy Bishop downtown island airport almost exclusively to do so. The past four times I exited the ferry to catch a flight out of Billy Bishop, I witnessed the exact same behaviour of my fellow passengers:
I tell him he looks way younger than 43. "You don't look 34 either," he says. "Yay! We're just two people, defying age! We must look young, because we avoid things like marriage and babies!" He coughs a little. "Actually, I've had both."
Ivy Knight knows where to eat, drink and party in Toronto. She sat down with me to dish on the best spots the city has to offer.

The 2015 Pan Am and Para-Pan Am Games are fast approaching. Is Toronto ready? A recent blog written by Paralympic athlete and Canadian wheelchair tennis champion Joel Dembe suggests there is reason for concern.
With events on all six habitable continents and 24 cities participating in Nuit Blanche events across 2013, Toronto's edition is North America's largest, boasting over one million visitors in 2012. That number is expected to continue growing in 2013 and beyond as the event gains more traction with Toronto and its neighbouring cities.
Red and Yellow Boar, Indigo Rose, Striped Tonnelet, and Striped Marvel Zapotec Tomatoes and Marigolds, a useful culinary flower, all from 12...
This was a big week for hockey fans with the NHL season opener ringing in a brand new set of Stanley Cup hopes and dreams. But no sooner had the fun begun than Montreal Canadiens enforcer George Parros got into a fight that ended with him bashing his face straight into the ice and being carried off on a stretcher. Fortunately, Parros was in good enough shape to be discharged from hospital the next day. However, the concussion he suffered means he is out "indefinitely" (the Canadiens' word), and the whole question of whether the NHL should crack down on fighting has been raised afresh.
As I approach the address of the restaurant, I see a sandy blonde hair dude standing out front of a nonexistent restaurant. There's just a big fence and a "Coming Soon" sign. Oops. Nice choice, Christina. Pick a bar that doesn't open for another two months, why don't you?
The TTC has a branding problem. Let me explain. One morning, Premier Kathleen Wynne was late for question period. Why was she late? Well, why are any ...
Now I know I should immediately block this guy. Still... I'm oddly intrigued. My show ends around 10:30 p.m. I check my phone, and there's a message from him. You're my little nasty girl. I take a deep breath, and pray he's just kidding.
