    Views from the Toronto-Dominion Centre Observation Gallery

    I found this TD Centre handout at my father-in-laws. He toured the observation gallery with a cousin visiting from Netherlands sometime in the late 60's (there's a photo of them with the city behind that probably has the date on the back that I forgot to take).

    Which professional Toronto sports team will be the next team to have a parade down Yonge Street after winning the championship for their respective league? Argos: 15 Grey Cups, last in 2004. Missed 2009 playoffs and were pretty lousy all season. Blue Jays: 2 World Series wins, last in...

    B.C.'s billboard pokes fun at Toronto

    Sorry if this was posted elsewhere. Source I think it's kinda funny, although having the Vancouver Olympics logo on it raises my eyebrow a bit. As the article says, nothing unites Canadians more than slagging Toronto, but maybe not at this time leading up to the Olympics being held here...

    Development Index

    The links in the Development Index section appear to be all wrong, or at least the few I tried. For example, when I clicked on 'Quantum (Minto Midtown) it took me to the Bohemian Embassy thread, and RBC Centre took me to a St. Lawrence Performing Arts thread

    Gooderham Building (Flatiron) renovation?

    I noticed today that the Flatiron building had scaffolding up around it. I don't know how long it's been up since I haven't been in that part of town for some time so it might not be new news to some. I figure it's for some renovation or restoration. What struck me as odd was that the mural on...
