Federal finance minister Jim Flaherty, wielding a bloody axe, announced a 1% cut in the GST (it'll be just 5% in the New Year). Is this the final stake in the One Cent Now campaign's coffin?

Developers, the city, and resident community activists of West Queen West have reached a few deals that will bring new rental units, new affordable housing for artists, and the conversion of a haunted church into a theatre space.
