[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links, from Ken Pagan to Stepgate to House of Lords to the TTC to rent

  • Torontoist takes issue with the positive take CBC provided of Blue Jays beer-thrower Ken Pagan, softpeddling racism.
  • Councillor Shelley Carroll does a great job deconstructing “Stepgate”. (You get what you pay for, to start.)
  • House of Lords, a hairdressing shop a half-century old on Yonge below Bloor, is set to close. The Toronto Star‘s Jaren Kerr reports.
  • Mayor John Tory would like to freeze TTC fare increases for 2018. Can his government pull it off? The Toronto Star‘s Ben Spurr reports.
  • Rents in Toronto are near the level of Brooklyn, two thousand per one bedroom, and tenants are desperate.

Another non-exhibit at Nuit Blanche, this column of balloons stretching out to a traffic pole in front of the House of Lords hair salon at 639 Yonge Street caught my eye. Pretty colours in the night.
