All the rules and fine-print can be found in the original announcement post on the blogTO Flickr page. One thing to add, however, is that the voting period ends at 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, after which the winner will be contacted with the good news.
The video in question is described by both publications as having been recorded in a well-lit room some time in the last six months. The narratives generally match: Rob Ford is seen, incoherent, warming a glass pipe with a cigarette lighter and briefly speaking to those around him. He calls the Don Bosco football team he coaches "fucking minorities," Liberal leader Justin Trudeau a "fag," then "inhales deeply."
In a sensational blog post, John Cook, the site's editor, claims he visited Toronto with the intention of buying the tape and was able to see a few seconds where Ford "seated, in a room in a house. In one hand is a a clear, glass pipe."
Leading the intensification plans is RioCan's $100 million overhaul of Yonge Eglinton Centre on the northwest corner, currently home to two stern office towers and a small underground shopping mall. New renderings show the in-progress project replacing much of the grey concrete with angular glass and steel while adding a significant amount of retail space.
I think the key to focus on here is "ready to." The area is not yet bursting with life by any means. I'm sure some would debate my assessment, but I'm pretty sure I saw a tumbleweed billowing by as I checked out the development site. An elderly lady glared at me from her rundown porch as I scoped the scene. She was the only human I saw. That said, no one can wholly predict the direction a section of the city will take.
The standout features here would have to be the incredible amounts of natural light and the washroom pictured below. If my lowly blogger self could gain access to this urban palace, I would throw pool parties in that tub with all of my vagabond companions. No question.
