Each Tuesday, Spacing Montreal will share some posts from our sister blog, Spacing Toronto. We hope it will fuel constructive dialogue on the urban issues faced by both cities.

• How delightful! Creative new ways of using already-pasted posters are making appearances around Toronto. A mysterious artiste is carefully ripping, wrapping, and re-pasting these posters into cones, filling them with dirt and planting the pockets with flowers.

• An introduction to the breakout work of Richard Florida, The Rise of the Creative Class which reduces urban demographics to monetary values. A recent Creative Class Struggle debate last week, proved some criticisms are better than others. Also to be featured in the next issue of Spacing Magazine.

• John Lorinc’s weekly column asks : Is the strike costing the City of Toronto money, or is it generating a financial windfall for the Corporation?
