Toronto’s enviro report card

There are many ways in which the GTA is making great strides toward becoming a world-class sustainable city. In the past year alone, we’ve seen many initiatives to create more green space, ban environmentally hazardous products and practices and generally make our city a healthier place to live.

Turner on Real Estate: a slow and steady march to the bottom is well underway

Each spring, they migrate back to the well-treed ’hoods of North Toronto, flitting from property to property in a fecund frenzy. You can stand there, quietly watching, certain there’s but one obsession on their minds: Nesting. These are the house hornies, the drivers of GTA real estate.

Release your inner style sleuth

I have a new addiction. My new addiction is checking out houses. Not necessarily to buy, but for decorating ideas.

The Comedy Issue: Harland Williams

For our Comedy Issue, we interviewed seven of the city’s top comedians. Today, we present comedic jack-of-all-trades Harland Williams. This Bayview native frequently switches hats, not only from standup comedian to movie actor, but he’s also an illustrator, a children’s author, a painter and a musician. Here, Williams dishes about his youth in Toronto and starring in the CityTV sitcom Package Deal.

Public input on transit is vital

Public opinion is sharply divided between those favouring subways and those who want light rail transit [LRT]. That’s what I thought until last month when I hosted a two-hour transit information session when residents chose subways and LRT.

Illegal rooming houses a concern

It took three years to get rid of an illegal rooming house on a street near Sheppard and Willowdale. Relatively speaking, that’s a success story because, in most cases, the city can’t gain entry to get evidence that would hold up in court.

Singer sparks donations

The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation and SickKids Foundation have 17-year-old Carley Allison to thank for a recent boost in donations, spurred by a video of her singing a cover of One Direction’s “More Than This.” The Bayview Glen Private School student was recently diagnosed with a rare throat cancer that necessitated a tracheotomy. The YouTube piano cover has garnered more than 23,000 views as of March 21.

Publication of year-old plan rankles community

You may know it as “Young and Eligible” or you may shorten it to “Yonge and Eg,” but no matter what you call it, the intersection of Yonge Street and Eglinton Avenue has become a battleground for clashing ideals.

Sewell: sure, a casino in Toronto could create jobs, but at what cost?

That a disaster is good for a local economy sounds counterintuitive, but an example shows how it works. When a section of Finch Avenue West was washed away by a flash flood in 2005, the city had to immediately rush in to bring the situation under control.

Rise and shine: Dina Pugliese on celeb gossip, Justin Bieber and being a morning person

When it comes to interviewing morning television hosts, there’s an unwritten rule in journalism. It goes like this: the writer asks the star how they manage to be so lively at 6 a.m., the star claims not to be a morning person, and jokes about caffeine addiction ensue.

Sewell: ranting is fine for the radio, it’s but no way to govern a city

Those public hearings the city held about casinos? I didn’t attend. The chance of learning anything new about casinos was limited. The chance of the meeting being hijacked by one faction or another was high. The chance of influencing any politician was nil. Why spend a few hours getting frustrated?

Rob Stewart: the outspoken filmmaker on the repeal of Toronto's shark fin ban and his new movie, Revolution

At the much-anticipated 2010 Hong Kong premiere of his hit documentary Sharkwater, filmmaker Rob Stewart held a standard post-screening Q & A. When the lights came up in the theatre, he called on a young woman who thanked him for a beautiful film but then bluntly asked, “What’s the point of stopping shark finning if the UN predicts that by 2048 the fisheries are actually going to be all wiped out?”
