CHFI plagiarizing articles from other Toronto web sites

Posted by Staff / September 13, 2014

chfiCHFI has some explaining to do. Just check out this Reddit thread and you'll see they're clearly plagiarizing content from other sites including us. On Friday we posted an article about the impending closure of Sunrise Records' two downtown locations. What did CHFI do? They not only reported on the same news, but they used our photo and text verbatim.

CHFI. What do you have to say for yourselves?

Posted by Liora Ipsum / September 13, 2014

BLT TorontoThe best BLT sandwiches in Toronto follow a simple formula: Salty, cured meat layered onto bread with crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes and creamy mayo. The classic combination leaves little room for improvement - but that hasn't deterred Toronto sandwich makers from trying.

Posted by Derek Flack / September 13, 2014

late night booze torontoPlotting where one can find late night booze in Toronto is bound to be a frustrating task if only because there are so many places that offer post-LCBO and post-last call options that absolutely do not want anyone writing about them for fear of legal repercussions. I also don't want to spoil the fun by idiotically revealing the location of an after hours or which booze delivery services will come to your apartment at 4am. This information, for better or worse, will have to remain confined to word of mouth.

What I can do, on the other hand, is sketch out some of your options when it comes to securing liquor after the typical LCBO closure time of 9pm and what some of the more official options are when it comes to securing booze after most places have shut down.

tiff 2014Not everything at TIFF can be great. Given the volume of movies that appear at the festival, everything being good would be statistically impossible.
