19:00 The Daughter at Friday, July 29, 2016 at 7:00 »Tonight at City Cinema
Only 4 days left to see this film.

Rated: 14 Accompaniment (Coarse Language, Sexual Content)
Runs: 96 minutes
Director: Simon Stone
Country: Australia
Starring: Geoffrey Rush, Odessa Young, Ewen Leslie, Miranda Otto, Anna Torv, Sam Neill

“Director Simon Stone makes an impressive feature debut with this loose reworking of Ibsen’s The Wild Duck. Geoffrey Rush and Sam Neill play ageing patriarchs of two intertwined families in a small-town drama loaded with secrets, lies, guilt and betrayal. From these two downwards, the cast is superb - from Paul Schneider, as Rush’s prodigal son, to Homeland’s Miranda Otto, and Odessa Young as the titular offspring. Subtle and skilled, this simmers for long periods until its highly satisfying finale.” - James Mottram, Total Film. “I don’t usually like to make predictions about movies. But for once I’ll stick my neck out: Simon Stone is going to have an important career as a film director and Odessa Young will be an international star. The Daughter is a new Australian film of great distinction: Young plays the title character, and Stone proves with his feature film debut that he is completely at home with cinema. Not just at home, but able to expand the medium with inventiveness and considerable skill... The entwined relationships and histories are presented by Stone with dazzling economy and skill. The entire cast responds to the director’s subtle and intelligent vision, giving performances that resonate long after the film is over... I don’t know if there’ll be a better Australian film released this year, but for now all I can do is to recommend in the strongest terms this fine, powerful, emotional piece of cinema.” - David Stratton, The Australia

We’re done with the US political conventions.

00:49 [MUSIC] Frankie Goes to Hollywood, "Relax" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
Over on Facebook, David got me caught up in a meme. His link to Massive Attack's excellent "Teardrop" came with a challenge to his readers, to select and share music as an antidote to the grimness that pervades. All we had to do to take part was to Like the post, David then giving us a letter for a musician, band or artist. I got F.

Some scans of a directory of music groups brought me to Frankie Goes to Hollywood. What better song of theirs is to pick but "Relax"?

What better song is there to pick in these dark times but one devoted to pleasure? It's worth noting that the music video I remember seeing on MuchMusic back in the day is much tamer than their original video.

19:40 [URBAN NOTE] On the averted desire of Rob Ford to rip out the throat of Justin Trudeau »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The National Post reports on the identification of Ford's intended victim.

Well, Ford lost his window.

We finally know who Rob Ford was referring to when he said he needed just “10 f***ing minutes to make sure he’s dead.”

The late Toronto mayor was looking to get in the ring with none other than Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, according to a report in the Toronto Sun.

During Ford’s four tumultuous years as Toronto mayor, shocking cellphone camera videos of the mayor became almost commonplace.

The video shows a slurring Ford ranting and raving that he wants to “murder” someone and “rip his f***ing throat out.”

But it wasn’t intended to be taken seriously, one witness to that night in June 2012 told the Sun’s Joe Warmington. Instead, it was Ford, who was a big pro-wrestling fan, joking around WWF-style that he wanted to fight Trudeau.
19:38 [URBAN NOTE] "Why are Young Torontonians Moving into Tiny Micro Condos?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The title of Alina Bykova's Torontoist article is a rhetorical question. Downtown living is really worth it.

When Sean Solowski saw his 27-square-metre apartment for the first time, he was struck by the huge windows and the flood of natural light. It was 2009, and Solowski had just moved from Ottawa, where he had been studying, back to his native Toronto. The apartment was on the second floor of a building dating back to the early 1900s near Dundas and Gladstone, and even though it was considerably smaller than most studio apartments, it was perfect for the 33-year-old.

In Ottawa, where he received his graduate degree in architecture from Carleton University, Solowski lived in a 51-square-metre apartment, and sizing down meant getting rid of some of his belongings. “It really makes you think, ‘What are the essentials of life?’” he says. Because the apartment only has one closet, he put many of his possessions on display. Two shiny motorcycle helmets are perched on the wall above an orange swivel armchair. A streamlined and expensive-looking Cervèlo road bike hangs from another wall. “Plan for things to have more than one function,” says Solowski, who made the best of his tiny pad with a futon couch that folded into a bed at night and a work desk that doubled as a dining table.

Solowski isn’t the only Torontonian purging his belongings and sizing down into a tiny apartment. Today, condominium developers are turning to micro condos to satisfy a growing need for downtown real estate.

In the last year alone, the number of micro condos in Toronto’s new housing market has risen to 11 per cent, up from five per cent, according to a study from Urbanation. Micro condo units appeal particularly to the younger crowd—people in their late 20s and early 30s who want to live and work in Toronto’s vibrant downtown core. The condos are smaller, cheaper, and easier to clean and organize, ideal for a young person who has recently landed their first professional job and may want to find a beginner’s footing in the city’s expensive real estate market.
19:37 [URBAN NOTE] "CMHC adds new cities to its list of overheated housing markets" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
This, as described by the Toronto Star's Tess Kalinowski, is not at all good. Hamilton, too?

Canada’s housing agency says there is evidence of increasingly “problematic conditions” in the national home market, prompting it to upgrade its assessment of the country’s troubling signs from weak to moderate.

One of those signposts has been planted just down the road from Toronto in the neighbouring city of Hamilton.

A third-quarter report from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. (CMHC) on Wednesday said overvaluation in Hamilton was similar to that of Toronto’s property market.

That means home prices are higher than would normally be explained by factors such as population, employment and income.

There’s no specific data proving Torontonians are moving west on the QEW in search of cheaper housing, said Abdul Kargobo, CMHC analyst for the city of about 520,000 people.

“But if we look back to 2013, we do see that Hamilton is attracting some buyers that are priced out of Toronto because Hamilton is relatively affordable,” he said.

The economic development department in Hamilton recently reported its average home price of $451,000 was nearly half that of Toronto’s $940,000.
19:34 [URBAN NOTE] "Why does Toronto’s east end hate everything?" »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
The Toronto Star's May Warren introduces readers to the possibility of east-end Toronto being NIMBYish.

Over the years, residents in the east end neighbourhoods of Leslieville and the Beach have complained about everything from breweries to music festivals and even a mysterious hum only some can hear.

But the region’s latest grievance – that toddlers playing in a park are too loud – has some wondering whether the east end doth protest too much.

“NIMBYism at its worst. This is why the Beach has such a bad rep in the city,” wrote one member of The Beaches Facebook group. “Give me a break, get a life. Let kids be kids,” wrote another.

“It’s probably just our demographic here,” said Beach Village BIA director Jessica Wright. “We’re bringing in some younger people but at this point it’s still a little bit of an older crowd.

“They’re used to kind of a sleepy neighbourhood a little bit.”

by Paul MacNeill


It is an emotion comprised of many different fabrics. There is pride in place and community, pride in accomplishment and pride in family.

Importantly, there is also pride in diversity and acceptance. Pride is created when we jointly celebrate the people and events that lift us up and make us a better community.

Montague’s pride, once again, is damaged. Shredded by a town council policy that forbids the displaying of symbols or emblems and the raising of flags to celebrate education raising events such as PEI Pride Week.

Last year, Pride PEI requested Montague fly the Pride Week flag. The request was declined on the basis that there was not enough time to approve the action. Subsequently council implemented a new policy that decrees the town is no longer in the proclamation business, meaning everything from MS Week to Pride Week will no longer find a friendly supporter in the town of Montague.

It is unfortunate that once again Montague, which drew 4,000 people to the waterfront for the Diverse Cities Day, again finds itself in an unflattering public light simply because town council seems incapable of anticipating reaction to decisions before they are made.

While the policy is sweeping in nature, its aim appears to ordinary citizens as an attempt to block the flying of the Pride flag. The excuse put forth by a town official that council does not want to be in the position of appearing to support one side or the other is silly.

Is there really public opposition to MS Month? How about cancer month? What about Alzheimer’s?
16:49 [ISL] The National Post on the cheap real estate of Prince Edward Island »A bit more detail (Randy MacDonald)
"For Sale: Historic P.E.I. century home on 3.5 acres, five minutes from fishing harbour, sandy beaches; $135,000" is the name of a photo-heavy article by Shari Kulha looking at an Island home going for ridiculously low prices, at least by Toronto standards.

This sweet, immaculate home can be a getaway from the big city craziness, a starter home for those looking to raise a kid or two in a less-harried environment, or a home for a retired person wishing to putter in a garden or walk down to the harbour for a chinwag over a coffee with the locals. The house’s history is still evident in the floorboards, doors and more. While the windows, plumbing and wiring have been upgraded, they were done in such a way as to best preserve the authenticity of the old place.

First, the history: As the current owner’s son describes it, “In the decade before 1800, a public building was erected near the city of Boston, Mass. It was well used, but after many years it was deemed no longer necessary and was deconstructed. The remnant pieces – large hand-hewn timbers and wide linen-fold boards – were loaded onto a schooner and sailed north to P.E.I.” The house was destined for the schooner captain and his family. “Those beams and boards formed the historic and unusual framework for [the] house that still stands in Murray Harbour North.”

The price? 135 thousand, Canadian.

The waters of the Northumberland Strait had risen almost to the bottom of the cliffs.
