IN THE NEW ISSUE
In the cover section of our Spring 2018 issue, our contributors set out to document the unique aspects of urban life that have turned Toronto into a 24-hour city. We explore the culture of ordering “cold tea” (places that serve booze after last call), why Toronto needs a “night mayor” like other international cities, how local sex workers are trying to combat violence, and where to look in the night sky to find the Toronto Asteroid.
IN THE BOOK
Ask any Torontonian and they will tell you about their love-hate relationship with the city’s public transit system. But lurking behind the stories of no-show streetcars and subways stuck in tunnels are little known secrets and tales: a never-used LRT platform built into a subway station’s bus bay, a bullet-proof streetcar loaded with cash toiling through the streets, and a beaver who dispensed safety tips to children. Discover the legends of Toronto’s public transit in our new book, 25 Toronto Transit Secrets. Available on our web site for purchase or in the Spacing Store.
