[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: Hodo Kwaja, King Street, HQ2, TDSB school trips, Ontario Place

  • This CBC article highlighting Hodo Kwaja bakery in Koreatown and the delicious walnut cakes it makes is superb.
  • VICE shares the story of a man who went nightclubbing on King Street to gauge the effects of the transit experiment. (His judgement? There’s change, but this change is natural.)
  • Trudeau is going to play up Canadian diversity to Amazon as part of the Toronto bid for HQ2, reports The Globe and Mail.
  • The TDSB has loosened restrictions on school trips to the United States, with some qualifications. (If any one student is blocked at the border, for instance, the entire trip is off.) The Toronto Star examines the issue.
  • The further expansion of parkland at Ontario Place, as announced by the provincial government, is inspiring. The Toronto Star reports.
