[URBAN NOTE] Five Toronto links: Metropass, Dial-a-Story, Brickworks, South Etobicoke, NEWFOUNDLAND

  • Transit Toronto notes that, sadly, at the end of 2018, the TTC’s venerable Metropass will be no more, subsumed into Presto. I bid this card a dear farewell: I will miss it!
  • Emerald Bensadoun at the Toronto Star writes about how the Toronto Public Library’s Dial-a-Story program has been helping children learn English for decades.
  • Christopher Hume at the Toronto Star writes about the renovation of the Evergreen Brickworks’ kiln building. I’m excited to see this place again.
  • This paid advertisement highlighting the attractions of South Etobicoke actually does seem to do a decent job of explaining the attractions of this part of Toronto. I’d buy a condo by the Humber.
  • blogTO notes that 1537 Queen Street West, in Parkdale, is set to host a new store, NEWFOUNDLAND, catering to Newfoundlander expats.
