Is Eglinton the next Bloor Street?

Maureen Sirois walks down Eglinton Avenue on a sunny Saturday afternoon, past the clothing shops, butcher and bakery to her own store next to the Eglinton Grand theatre, pointing out the changes she hopes to see in the neighbourhood. That the city’s Toronto Parking Authority (TPA) is eyeing the Green P lot in behind that stretch for redevelopment is a sign of what’s to come.

The Comedy Issue: Kenny Hotz

For our Comedy Issue, we interviewed seven of the city’s top comedians. Today, we present the loveable loudmouth Kenny Hotz. Between grossing us out on Kenny vs. Spenny and making us laugh so hard we totally blew past that red light with Sirus XM’s Kenny Hotz Live, he’s always gravitating towards the largest microphone he can find. Here, Hotz tells us how he ended up offending the masses on-air.

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?
