    Get ready, Toronto A "toilet-themed dessert bar" is headed to Canada. The aptly named Poop Café Dessert Bar is slated to open in mid-August in Toronto's Koreatown, according to the Toronto Star. Menu items will include chocolate soft-serve, pudding, and traditional Asian desserts like patbingsoo (shaved ice with red beans and various other toppings). Per the Star, "All of the poo-ticular items available at the café will be brown, formed like a stool and served in toilet-shaped dishes." What a world. Owner Lien Nguyen says she's "trying to make poop cute," as evidenced by the restaurant's poo-themed murals accompanied with...

    Toronto’s legendary Pride Parade is a festival of inclusiveness – a good-natured rainbow coalition that embraces every letter of the LGBTQ alphabet. It’s so inclusive that even straight people march in it. Its message is: Loud, proud and unbowed. Nobody can bully us any more. Well, almost nobody. The new bully on the block is Black Lives Matter, a tiny group of noisy activists who borrow their branding and their belligerence from the United States. They’ve proved they can bully just about anyone, including city hall, the mayor and the provincial Premier. The Pride Parade was a pushover. Black Lives...

    Pride agreed to the group’s demands, including the removal of police floats and more funding for black performers, after Sunday’s shutdown by activists. Black Lives Matter brought Sunday’s Pride parade to a standstill on Sunday to force the annual celebration of LGBT equality to answer for its “anti-blackness,” the protesters said. The group, an honoured guest at this year’s parade, stopped its float and marchers at Yonge and College Sts. for more than 30 minutes, refusing to move until Pride officials met their demands. “We are under attack,” Alexandria Williams, one of the group’s co-founders cried into the megaphone. “Pride...

    The Ontario lottery corporation recently started advertising its newest scratch-and-win lottery: tickets cost $30 (the highest price among its lotteries), and the top prize is a cool $2.5 million. Now, if you want an indication of how bad traffic is in the GTA, consider that Transportation Minister Steven Del Duca announced a lottery of his own on Thursday: tickets cost $180 each, though you only pay if you win. The prize? One of 1,000 permits to drive in an uncongested highway lane for 16 kilometres between Burlington and Oakville. The ad copy writes itself: Imagine the freedom of cruising at...

    OTTAWA CITIZEN ^ | 06.04.2016 | Lee Berthiaume, Ottawa Citizen and John Ivison |
    OTTAWA — The Liberal government is intent on buying Super Hornet fighter jets, according to multiple sources. Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s cabinet reportedly discussed the issue last week, and while no formal decision was taken, one top-level official said: “They have made up their minds and are working on the right narrative to support it.” Rather than a full replacement of the air force’s aging CF-18 fighter fleet, it’s believed the purchase will be labelled an interim measure to fill what Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan has warned is a pending “gap” in Canada’s military capabilities. The Liberals promised during the...

    A provocative $4-million documentary by Toronto filmmaker Simcha Jacobovici claims to have found archeological evidence verifying the story of the biblical Exodus from Egypt, 3,500 years ago. Religious Jews consider the biblical account incontrovertible — the foundation story of the creation of the nation of Israel. Indeed, they celebrated the Exodus Wednesday night and last night with the annual Passover recitation of the Haggadah. But among scholars, the question of if and when Moses led an estimated two million Israelite slaves out of pharaonic Egypt, miraculously crossed the Red Sea ahead of the pursuing Egyptian army and received the Ten...

    Keith Richards was facing seven years in prison in 1977 for a massive drug bust at his Toronto hotel room. The night before he was sentenced, he headed to Toronto's Interchange Studios and recorded several songs he'd learned from his late friend Gram Parsons. The highlight was "Sing Me Back Home," a ballad Merle Haggard wrote about his time at San Quentin. For our upcoming issue, Richards spoke with Rolling Stone about his appreciation for Haggard, who died earlier this month, who he calls "one of the great country singers of all time and a hell of a guitar player."I...

The attacker attempted to move farther into the building, but was taken down by a group of between six and eight soldiers, the chief said. The suspect uttered the word "Allah" the Toronto Sun reports, citing police sources. A source with knowledge of the investigation has also told CBC News the same thing.

    The recent spate of shootings in this city has a lot of people asking why it's happening and how concerned we should be about our safety. After two people were killed and three more injured in Chinatown early Sunday morning, those questions are being asked more and more. The shooting happened on Spadina near Nassau Street, when a gunman opened fire on a group of men outside a restaurant. It's the ninth homicide in the city this year. Eight of those killings involved firearms. That brings the number of shootings up by about 100 per cent over this month last...

    Toronto police have found several guns and a religious book in the trunk of a car that was abandoned after a crash. The single-vehicle collision happened at Allen and Transit roads, north of Wilson Avenue, around 4:30 a.m. on Friday. The routine investigation turned into something much more when police arrived to find no one in the car. However, they did find a machine gun with a silencer, two handguns, one silencer for a handgun, and a small amount of ammunition. Police said the religious materials do not appear to have any connection to the investigation, and it is likely...

    TORONTO — Outside the quarantine zone Tuesday, life carried on as usual. Cars backed up. Fire trucks idled. Men (and women) went about their business. But inside the cordon, in the heart of Toronto’s financial district, things were oddly, eerily calm. A lone police officer stood on Bay Street, looking bored and chewing gum, while outside the tape, office workers looked up, craned their necks and gaped. Toronto Police blocked off a congested clump of streets in the commercial core for more than 24 hours Monday and Tuesday. The culprit: a wonky, but as it turned out perfectly safe, spire...

    HOV is good; HOT is even better. As we saw during the Pan-Am Games, High Occupancy Vehicle lanes were great for cars with three or more people and other designated vehicles. The trouble was that they went largely unused. High Occupancy Toll lanes solve that problem by opening up the designated space to cars that don’t have the numbers but whose drivers are willing to pay for the convenience. Premier Kathleen Wynne has hinted that she’s willing to implement HOT lanes, but has not been specific about where and when. If the U.S. experience is anything to go by, however,...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK) WATCH ABOVE: At 21, Austin Lewis of Toronto lives his life in a wheelchair. Now, as Sean O’Shea reports he’s also dealing with another obstacle when it comes to getting a subsidized apartment: he has the wrong religion. TORONTO — A disabled Toronto man had his name removed from the waiting list of a subsidized city apartment because he does not meet the main criteria for living there: being Muslim. “It doesn’t make any sense; I lived in Texas, that doesn’t make sense even there,” said Austin Lewis, 21, who is paralyzed and confined to a wheelchair.

    Unconfirmed reports suggest that two people in Toronto have killed themselves over the Ashley Madison hack, local police said in a briefing providing details about the beginning of the leak. “As of this morning, we have two unconfirmed reports of suicides that are associated because of the leak of Ashley Madison customers’ profiles,” Toronto police service staff superintendent Bryce Evans said at a press conference on Monday. Evans said the nature of the dating site for married people was “of no interest to us as the investigative teams”. Security analyst Brian Krebs said last week he feared exactly that outcome....

    Jihadis? Non-Muslim Leftists? No way to be sure at this point, but the scream of “F–k Jews” suggests Islamic anti-Semitism more than just opposition to Israel. However, the hatred of Jews that these men harbor almost certainly derives from “Palestinian” jihad propaganda, which is rooted in the jihad imperative to “drive them out from where they drove you out” (Qur’an 2:191) and destroy Israel utterly. “Toronto Jewish community on alert after threats by hooded men taking photos of synagogue,” by Toby Trompeter, National Post, July 28, 2015 (thanks to Stephen): TORONTO — The greater Toronto Jewish community is disquieted and...
