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really want to compete in the new global economy we need to innovate; sticking our head in the sand or relying on outdated statutes doesn't cut it.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.
Toronto's been getting a lot of love this year. Lonely Planet named it one of the best cities to visit in 2015, and now the city is ready to show the world what it has to offer when it hosts the Pan Am and Parapan American Games in July. With so many summer things to do in Toronto, it's no surprise that locals are calling it the best summer ever!
With the record industry as we used to know it continuing to fall apart, small upstarts like Buzz Records are primed to become the main source of new music that doesn't sound factory-made.
April 12, 2015 will undoubtedly be remembered as one of the boldest statements in the history of the storied Toronto Maple Leafs franchise. A new front office, new coaching and scouting staff, a new approach and certainly a lot of new players are just the beginning.
Toronto's police board has gone from refusal, to resistance, to resignation, to recognition of the problem, to partial resolution (the PACER report) and now, to retraction, recalcitrance and regression. What happened to the commitment to a fair and equitable society, to bias-free policing? The TPSB is set to vote this Thursday on a policy that is offensive and insidious. This new policy not only eliminates the requirement to issue receipts, but it takes us back even further than we were a few months ago. Is this the direction of an oversight body and a civilian boss that was once committed to diversity and fair treatment?
