Anastasia Lomonova is a Montreal-based designer whose shows at Montreal Fashion Week attract a cult following. The unveiling of the "tribal warrior femme" for her spring and summer 2013 collection at Galerie Arsenal on Sept. 4, 2013, did not disappoint.

Earlier today, Toronto City Councillor Georgio Mammoliti caused a stir when he discounted an independent report by Toronto's esteemed Ombudsman, Fiona Crean. In her report, she found that the appointments to city agencies and boards had been "compromised" by political influence. As a public servant, Mammoliti has advocated ideas that are disturbing at best. In a heated exchange, Councillor Perks spoke for all of us when he told Coun. Mammoliti, "Shame on you -- get out of this chamber" and called him a "bully."
When was the last time you can remember global warming being the top story on the evening news? Yeah, I don't remember either. Have you ever wished that a weather person on the news would "go rogue" and express his or her fears about all the extreme weather?
