Morning Brew: Aquarium seeks sharks, a cardboard Toronto, the Toasted Tangerine is deadpool, meditating on Bay Street, synth heaven, and Jays snap losing streak

The hunt for sharks to fill Toronto's new aquarium is on. A team of expert biologists is in South Carolina to catch 10 sand tiger sharks for the main tank at Ripley's Aquarium, currently under construction near the CN Tower. Some Elasmobranchs are about to find their world got a whole lot smaller.

Stephen Velasco, cereal box sculptor extraordinaire, has continued to plug away at his remarkable model of Toronto. After three years of work, he's made a highly-detailed replica of Toronto's downtown skyscrapers within the Gardiner Expressway, John Street, Yorkville Avenue and Yonge Street area. Awesome.

The Toasted Tangerine - a popular Toronto food truck that specialized in toasted sandwiches - is, sadly, disappearing from the city's mobile eats scene. A message posted on the company's website announced the news Saturday without giving a reason for the decision.

A flash mob of meditating financial workers took over the corner of Bay and King Saturday morning to protest economic mismanagement in the financial sector. A photo of the scene appeared on Reddit.

Finally, synth fans rejoice. Pianocade, a homegrown musical instrument that looks like the unholy offspring of an arcade game and a keyboard, is launching Wednesday in Toronto. Check out the demo video and relive your years spent on the NES or Sega:
