Quiet For Toronto

Be warned: I’ll be in Chicago for the rest of the week so things will be pretty quiet around here. I’ve got a number of stories I want to run — on the land transfer tax; on Ford’s populism and the so-called “silent majority”; on Coach House Books’ Local Motion and the things I learned from reading it — but I’m going to hold them until next week. I do have some Toronto Spoke videos queued up to auto-post in my absence.

For now, I’d recommend reading some of the amazing columns and tributes to Jack Layton and look at photos like this one, of Nathan Philips Square covered in chalk messages. Celebration and mourning go together so well.

Ford For Toronto will return.
