TORONTO—Canadian Tire has announced that its nationally recognizable store currency is going digital. And the prospect of rainbow-colored Canadian Tire money becoming obsolete triggered a gasp that was heard from one side of the country to the other.
When Canada’s Anti-Spam Law (“CASL”) came into effect on July 1, 2014, Canadians were dancing in the streets. Parliamentarians would have us believe that this was entirely due to the exhilaration of promised freedom from advertising for discount Viagra and Cialis; you, I and the family dog know that it obviously had more to do with the previously scheduled Canada Day celebrations.

TORONTO—Every February since 1986, a bright light has shone on the darkest part of the Canadian winter: Tim Hortons Roll Up The Rim To Win contest. And now that this glorious time of year is winding down, I find myself at a loss.
As a Canadian, Tim Hortons is part of my genetic make-up. And as an Ontarian, seeing a Timmies is like coming home. But I feel cheated by the annual thumb-numbing prize fest.

TORONTO—New video footage of the Sammy Yatim shooting has surfaced, Mooseclean’s has learned. This time in crisp, clear high definition.
TORONTO—Addressing media at a press conference late Tuesday, Mayor Rob Ford expressed anger and embarrassment over his police department’s fatal shooting of a young man on a Toronto streetcar.
Viewers of the George Zimmerman second degree murder trial are on the fence about whether or not they should’ve invested 3 weeks of their lives into the show.
Steve Lamonte would like to make it clear that he has no idea what to do with your baby’s stats and would appreciate it if you just kept it to yourself.
In many ways, Voice of Fire is not unlike a childhood acquaintance. We grew up together.
Barnett Newman’s progeny, birthed in time for Montreal’s Expo ’67, looked entirely alien to my young eyes. An American expatriate, Voice came to Canada that same year on a visit with his father.
