The rise and fall and rise of St. Lawrence Hall

In 1966, Toronto’s St. Lawrence Hall was in terrible shape. The venerable old neoclassical building at the southwest corner of King and Jarvis streets was partially derelict—its stonework and chimneys collapsing, the roof leaking, and window frames rotting. Years of grime and dirt caked the glass and the clocktower sagged five centimetres off centre. The stores […]

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.
