19:00 The Meddler at Friday, May 27, 2016 at 7:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 8 days left to see this film.

Rated: Parental Guidance (Mature Theme)
Runs: 100 minutes
Director: Lorene Scafaria
Country: US
Starring: Susan Sarandon, Rose Byrne, J.K. Simmons

“The Meddler follows a retired widow, Marnie (a fantastic Susan Sarandon), who moves to Los Angeles to be closer to her only daughter, Lori, as writer who is trying to get her first TV series off the ground. As you can guess by the title and much to Lori’s dismay, Marlie isn’t good at understanding boundaries. The film’s secret weapon is Scafaria’s skill at conveying Marnie’s loneliness and keeping things entertaining at the same time... A fantastic cast help transform into a true crowd pleaser.” - Gregory Ellwood, HitFix. “Adorable and incorrigible. In Lorene Scafaria’s crowd-pleasing bicoastal comedy, Sarandon is a well-meaning widow who fends off her grief and procrastinates in getting on with life by meddling in the lives of her daughter and various pseudo-offspring. J.K. Simmons gently excels as a patient ex-cop, chicken-farming suitor.” - Brad Wheeler, The Globe and Mail. “The Meddler is Susan Sarandon’s best performance in 20-plus years... Sarandon’s performance as a middle aged, eccentric, neurotic, Jersey mom that moves to L.A. is hilariously spot on.” - Jordan Ruimy, Awards Daily

17:44 [URBAN NOTE] Four links on the Toronto police raids on marijuana dispensaries yesterday »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's David Rider and and Christopher Reynolds covered the raids yesterday in "Toronto police and drug squad raid marijuana dispensaries"

Toronto police raided dozens of medical marijuana dispensaries Thursday, sometimes kicking in glass doors, after condemnation from Mayor John Tory and written warnings from city staff about adhering to current laws failed to halt the free flow of pot.

Officers swooped down with warrants on locations from Kensington Market to the Danforth, laying charges and leaving with bags of drugs, iPads and other seized items.

Some residents passing the storefronts thanked police, while others called it a waste of time as Ottawa prepares to legalize recreational marijuana next year.

Police, who worked with city licensing staff, refused to say how many shops were raided, how many people were charged, whether the charges involve city bylaw infractions or Criminal Code offences, or how much marijuana was seized, in what was dubbed “Project Claudia.” The city said licensing officials visited 45 storefronts.

Chief Mark Saunders will disclose details Friday morning, Const. Caroline de Kloet said, adding that the raids “targeted various locations that have been identified as trafficking in marijuana outside of the marijuana-for-medical-use regulations.”

Vice's Manisha Krishnan reported from the scene of one of the raids.

VICE witnessed two plain-clothed officers raiding Eden dispensary on Queen Street West at around 1 PM Thursday.

Inside, at least eight employees sat in handcuffs while cops went through the product inside, placing large quantities of bud into large plastic bags. They were also using scales and cameras to conduct the raid.

An employee with the city's licensing department also showed up, but said he could not comment on the situation. Speaking to an officer and an employee in cuffs, he said he would need a "declaration."

Eden customer "Pastel Supernova" who stopped by to pick up some weed was surprised when she realized a raid was taking place. She told VICE the dispensary is clean, friendly, and knowledgeable. "I just think it's lame, there are bigger crimes," she said of the crackdown.

NOW Toronto's Michelle Da Silva spoke with the manager of one dispensary on the Danforth.

We have a number of products, not only cannabis. We have oils, tinctures, edibles, other alternatives when patients can’t smoke or don’t want to get high but still need the healing powers of medicinal marijuana. The only thing we’re being charged for is anything with marijuana in it.

I’ve been answering the phone calls today, I’ve been informing all of our customers what has happened. It’s unfortunate that we had to tell them that temporarily, they’ll have to find medicine at a different location. Most likely they would run to the streets, which is very harmful and scary for me. I’m quite sad. When they took all of our products, they were mixing the bags. I can’t sell that no more. When people are looking for a specific type to treat a specific treatment or condition, now I’m unable to offer our services until we reassess and buy new products.

Global News was one of the many sources reporting on the appearance of protesters at Toronto police chief Mark Saunders' press conference today.

Saunders was repeatedly interrupted by protesters who questioned the motivation for police to shut down the dispensaries and the evidence behind the claims the chief made.

“Is that an assumption or do you actually have documentation from hospitals and stuff?” one protester shouted.

“These clubs have literally been around for 20 years and literally the medical marijuana has been around for hundreds of years and have literally never killed anybody. So how do you justify that there’s a health concern when really it’s the most benign substance you can ingest?”

Saunders attempted to respond to the barrage of questions as protesters, including marijuana legalization advocate Jodie Emery, shouted over him.

“You have 54, 55 complaints but what about the thousands of people that these clubs are helping? Where do you suggest that these people go today?” the unidentified protester said.

17:35 [URBAN NOTE] "Toronto’s new Cycling Network Plan: What’s in store for Scarborough?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Spacing Toronto describes the benefits of Toronto's planned bike networks for east-end Scarborough.

On May 16th, the City of Toronto Public Works and Infrastructure Committee (PWIC) recommended that City Council increase annual capital funding to $16 million for the proposed Ten Year Cycling Network Plan. This figure was recommended by Transportation Services staff and roughly doubles the City’s annual spending on cycling infrastructure. The plan calls for a total of 525 km of new cycling infrastructure throughout the city, including 280 km of bicycle lanes or cycle tracks on what the staff report refers to as ”Fast, Busy Streets”, 55 km of sidewalk-level boulevard trails also along ”Fast, Busy Streets”, and 190 km of cycling routes on ”Quiet Streets”.

In a previous post, I highlighted what Scarborough residents could expect from this new plan. To re-cap, building cycling infrastructure on major corridors like Kingston Rd., Danforth Ave., and Midland Ave. would improve transportation options, especially in southwest Scarborough, which has the highest levels of cycling mode share.

Therefore, it is promising that sections of both Danforth Ave. (between Broadview Ave. and Danforth Rd.) and Kingston Rd. (between Danforth Ave. and Eglinton Ave. E.) are slated for major corridor studies during the first three years of the plan in 2017 and 2019 respectively. A major corridor study is used in locations that would achieve an important cycling network link but where the streets are already intensely used for a wide range of existing activities. As part of the study, traffic impacts are assessed and affected stakeholders, such as residents and business owners, are consulted before new cycling infrastructure is introduced.
17:32 [URBAN NOTE] "'Waterfront reset' examines way to extend transit to new neighbourhoods along the lake »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's Ben Spurr writes about proposals to extend rapid transit networks to the booming neighbourhoods on the Toronto waterfront.

In the next 25 years, the lakeshore area south of Queen St. is expected to add nearly 280,000 residents and 190,000 new jobs.

The number of public transit projects being built along the waterfront to serve them? Zero.

It’s a future city planners hope to avoid. That’s why on Wednesday night, the city launched public consultations on the “Waterfront Transit Reset,” a joint effort between the TTC, Waterfront Toronto and the city planning office to jump-start transportation expansion along the lake.

Consultation documents obtained by the Star in advance of their release online show the options being considered include an LRT in its own right-of-way on Lake Shore Blvd. West and a pedestrian tunnel from Queens Quay to Union Station that could include underground bike lanes and public art.

The goal of the reset, approved by council last November, is to provide options for a continuous east-west connection to serve areas such as Liberty Village, South Etobicoke, Fort York and CityPlace, all of which have seen unprecedented waves of development in recent years but no transit to match.
17:29 [URBAN NOTE] "No sign of High Park capybaras as search continues" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
First, a capybara update from the Toronto Star:

Today is day three of the citywide hunt for two “timid” rodents that escaped High Park Zoo Tuesday morning.

A bait, consisting of corn, fruit and the recording of low clicking sounds capybaras are known to make, was “unsuccessful in luring the escapees back into their pen,” said Megan Price, a spokesperson for the Parks, Forestry and Recreation department.

The capybaras, described as “skittish” by the zoo keepers were born in Texas six months ago and had not yet been named. They were being brought to the zoo to replace a male capybara, Chewy, when they managed to slip out of the pen.

According to Price, many people from all over the city reported of seeing what seemed to be capybaras, but they were mostly groundhogs.

“The difference is when a capybara walks you can see their legs,” said a Facebook post by High Park Zoo.

12:04 [PHOTO] Two photos of HTO Park »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
HTO Park is officially spelled HTO. This is, as Wikipedia notes, "a play on H2O, the chemical formula for water, since "TO" is commonly used to refer to Toronto and it is a waterfront park." Since most people don't use subscript, I'll stick with HTO.

The HTO Park is a lovely one, a carefully designed and popular urban beach park built on reclaimed industrial land. I really like the yellow umbrellas planted in the sand below the condos. I can see this being a huge hub in summer, even if Lake Ontario is not accessible for swimmers.

The below photo is one of my favourite from Victoria Day. (I even managed to catch a seagull mid-flight.)

Umbrellas of HTO Park #toronto #lakeontario #harbourfront #htopark #umbrellas #beach #cntower

Looking down from the CN Tower's Skypod, the HTO Park's layout, beach in the front and grassy area in the back, is clear.

HTO Park from the Skypod #toronto #cntower #htopark #parks #lakeontario #skypod

Sean Marshall's June 2007 "Toronto’s Waterfront takes a big step forward", published very soon after the HTO Park opened, provides what I think is the canonical Toronto take on the park.

HtO is billed as “Toronto’s Urban Beach” – its centrepiece is a long sand pit extending along the water’s edge, with metal yellow beach umbrellas providing shade, and Muskoka chairs pitched in the sand. On the edge is part of the new wooden boardwalk that will front the lake throughout the waterfront, with only a short metal rail separating it from the water’s edge.

The Toronto Star’s architecture critic, Christopher Hume, praised the park, but in a separate article, also highlighted the glacial pace of redevelopment (funding was promised while Pierre Trudeau was Prime Minister) and all the bureaucratic red tape and modifications made to the urban beach. Apprently the metal umbrellas were considered a safety risk should children decide to climb on them, and modifications were made to eliminate the steps leading into the water.

Despite all the setbacks, the incomplete park (the western half is still under construction) is a huge success. On the first Saturday night, the park was full of families, children were playing the sand pit, Afro music playing and gathering a crowd, others people walking along the water. There were at least three or four different uses that I saw at one time. Apart from not being able to swim (swimming in the inner harbour is both illegal and dangerous with all the boaters), it really feels like a beach.
