  • This U>long-form CBC article looking at Ken Pagan, the man who became infamous through his beer can toss, has insight.
  • I like Christopher Hume’s article describing changes of zoning around apartment highrises, to allow shops.
  • John Lorinc’s suggestion that taxes collected from foreign buyers be put towards social housing is provocative.
  • Robert Zunke is the man, sometime construction worker, assembling shrines on the Leslie Street spit.
  • Torontoist describes Blockobana, the queer black space at this year’s Toronto Caribbean Festival.
