    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    The spanish flu also doesn't have a memorial day, people tended to get on with things instead of ruminating on tragedy.

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    My family plot finally ready at Prospect. I dare say alot of people are learning about pursuing final arrangements. Still can't believe it. Thought it would be the cancer not some stupid virus. That and the hospital holding onto him for 3 1/2 weeks because no donations were being accepted...

    Mayor John Tory's Toronto

    Oh Glory! So happy to see the traffic on Jarvis, feels like some kind of normal! Yes, it is a pain, the dust, the grit, the frustration but it feels like years since I could choke on petrol fumes! What world is this?!

    Megxit (Prince Harry & Meghan Markle)

    I have given you two high profile examples of Harry disrespecting the military. That is where my conclusion came from. Also FYI, when in uniform and on duty you do not hold you SO's hand like they are falling off a cliff. It's protocol and considering how much money they got it would not be...

    Megxit (Prince Harry & Meghan Markle)

    Maybe if he had gone to the memorial for murdered Marines in Deal Kent instead of attending a Disney film premiere with Beyonce the military would want him. The last appearance they made at the Mountbatten Music Festival, he was in dress uniform, and she decided to ignore protocol and also wear...

    Miscellany Toronto Photographs: Then and Now

    It's a bit unfair that this is his legacy. The only photo he ever sat for apparently. In those days you had to sit still for some time and you couldn't see the result until much later. He might have been a bit of a joker, sitting still wasn't his forte.

    They are looking at late 2021 or into 2022 by all accounts. It will be worth it when it is occupied, the neighbourhood is awesome!

    Novel Coronavirus COVID-19 (nCoV-2019)

    Family member in hospital since August, myeloma and complications, then gets covid. I got it too, but managed to get thru it. Family member died 13 Dec, I told the hospital that he wanted to be donated to science, he had paid York University when he made arrangements many years ago. So the...

    St Lawrence Market

    The last thing the area needs is more lighting. The new stuff on the market is shockingly garish, such a beautiful building and yet lit up like Las Vegas.

    Toronto | 11 Macey | ?m | 3s | CreateTO | Montgomery Sisam

    Glad that they have some disabled suites. Hope the new tenants can take this opportunity to build a new, healthier and more connected life. No more fear, no more pain, no more negativity, just keep your eyes on the future, don't look back.

    Rogers Centre Renovations

    Can you imagine the noise and chaos to dismantle this arena? All that cement will have to be drilled out, and hauled out and all that steel - the mind boggles at the inconvenience to locals. There is more traffic and residents downtown now than back in the day. How is that these supposedly...
