jackpines: I’m going to be moving to Toronto just in time for another brutal winter, I guess.
FYT: That is every winter. And summer. It’s actually 98% brutal weather with a couple nice afternoons thrown in.

“We’re looking at the T-Rex of winters,” Jack Burnett, editor of the Old Farmer’s Almanac, said on CTV’s Canada AM on Thursday. Burnett said forecasts show that while Toronto and the surrounding region will experience a deep-freeze, it’s going to be drier this winter, with “fluffier snow.” CTV

"This tunnel is a great urban mystery. When workers were excavating the foundations for Roy Thomson Hall in the 1980s, diggers struck something solid in the buried remains of the old Canadian Pacific freight office that used to occupy the site. It was a tunnel leading to a room under Simcoe Street. Inside was a table, a chair, two empty cups, and a locked safe. The sealed container was craned to the surface where it quickly vanished, never to be heard from again. “A lot of people were treating it as a piece of junk,” Eugene Blain, the project manager on the site told the Toronto Star. “We had planned to force it open, but it wasn’t a priority.”"

"Rob Ford has been diagnosed with a rare and aggressive form of cancer. The Toronto mayor has been hospitalized since last week for a tumor in his abdomen, which doctors now conclude is a malignant liposarcoma. “It comprises about one per cent only of all cancers. It has about 60 different cell types,” said Dr. Zane Cohen at Toronto’s Mount Sinai Hospital. In the next two days, Ford will begin two rounds of chemotherapy, which will last approximately 40 days. Doctors have also found a “small nodule” in Ford’s buttocks, which is part of the same tumor discovered last week. Ford has a long and public history of drug abuse, but he went to rehab this past summer and planned to run for re-election. Ford withdrew from the mayor’s race on Friday. His brother, Doug, will run in his place."

Rob Ford withdraws from mayor’s race, Doug files to take his place | Toronto Star

fycanadianpolitics: Fucking hell. If Torontonians had any decency, this would collapse the Fords’ support, but I’ve no faith that’s going to happen.

[…] Mayor Rob Ford (Open Rob Ford’s policard) has ended his re-election bid but his brother, Councillor Doug Ford (Open Doug Ford’s policard), is replacing him in the Toronto mayoral race.

The Fords made the surprise move Friday before the 2 p.m. deadline for candidates to add or remove their names from the ballot for the Oct. 27 vote.

Rob Ford’s withdrawal came just before 1 p.m. After some problems with paperwork, Doug Ford was confirmed as mayoral candidate after 1 p.m.

Rob Ford is now candidate for Ward 2 Etobicoke North, the seat he held from 2000 until 2010. It is expected that the Fords’ nephew, Michael Ford, will withdraw as a council candidate in that ward.

Rob Ford was polling, after a chaotic, scandal-filled term, in second place, behind John Tory but ahead of Olivia Chow, when stomach pain sent him to the hospital Wednesday.

The head of his health-care team at Mount Sinai Hospital told reporters Thursday that Ford has a “fair size” mass in his abdomen […]
