Postcard From Toronto

It's diet time for the city's mayor and other news

In Toronto:

  • The mayor (and his brother, who holds a seat on city council) will go on a very public diet, complete with public weigh-ins. The aim is to raise money for charity.
  • According to a new report, the city's economy will grow just 2.6 percent next year, lagging behind Saskatoon, Edmonton and Calgary.
  • In a fantastical movie set at a local bookshop, books spin, dance and fly. It's an ode to the magic of books.
  • National Public Radio produces a thorough analysis of whether Drake, in fact "runs Toronto."
