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. Ed. Note: Sorry for the absence, folks. Should be back regularly now!
• John Lorinc muses over the necessity of the bicycle helmet. The Toronto Cyclists Union just rejected a motion to mandate them. Lorinc proposes a pretty interesting alternative solution involving a 3-year phase-in period.
• RIP Pages Books & Magazines. Toronto loses yet another specialty bookstore. Artists and sinners alike mourn.
• Toronto embarks upon a new unified zoning project which essentially re-determines the urban fabric of the city. Sparsely attended public meetings help no one. Please attend your local ones. :)
