In December 1954, the railway tracks near Logan Avenue presented the final obstacle in one of Toronto’s first major post-war road building projects—the construction of Dundas Street East through the east end of the city. At the time, Toronto lacked a direct route through the area east of the Don River that wasn’t already dense with streetcar traffic. […]

A new low for the Scarborough Subway champion

For 2016’s annual Torontoist Heroes and Villains feature, I nominated Toronto Councillor Glenn De Baeremaeker (Ward 38, Scarborough Centre) as villain of the year (“Pedestrian blaming” won that dubious honour).

Hi everyone!  I recently attended a CFI Toronto meetup event.  While there, I learned that James "The Amazing" Randi would have some function in Toronto's CFI.  Apparently, he's supposed to be here in September.  In case you aren't familiar with CFI Toronto, here's a link to the CFI Ontario website.


Sorry if this sounds like an advertisement.  I just wanted to let you guys know that Randi is supposed to be here soon.

My group, Humanist Canada on Atheist Nexus has been approved.

I have posted a short discussion article from Progressive Humanism (with a link at the bottom) to stimulate some discussion on the attitudes towards Humanism vs. Atheism.

Please join the group and consider joining our Facebook Group at!/group.php?gid=3916780925&ref=ts
