[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: walking on Yonge, Ford Country, Doug Ford, Finch West, Airbnb

  • John Lorinc considers walking in Toronto, on Yonge Street, in the wake of the van attack, over at Spacing.
  • This classic Toronto Life tour of “Ford Country”, the Toronto landmarks in the career of the Ford brothers, is quite relevant in this election year.
  • Royson James is quite right to note the limit of Rob Ford’s outreach towards black and other minority youth, over at the Toronto Star.
  • blogTO reports on the start of construction of the Finch West LRT line. I sincerely hope it won’t be disrupted by election year change in the way the Eglinton subway was by the Harris government.
  • Sean Grisdale at Spacing notes the highly concentrated, and negative, impact of Airbnb on housing in downtown Toronto neighbourhoods.
