What's happening in the GTA (and sometimes beyond):

Sports fans in Toronto are abuzz on news of a bid to bring the NHL's struggling Phoenix Coyotes franchise to the GTA. How cool would it be for Gretzky, the best player to ever play the game, to coach a team near his birthplace?

One of the accused "Toronto 18" has done the unexpected, and has pleaded guilty to charges related to the alleged terrorist plot to bomb Toronto [G&M]. Does this change anything, everything, or nothing?

You know that weird center lane on Jarvis that sometimes allows drivers to go northbound and other times allows drivers to so southbound? It's slated for removal, as Jarvis Street goes from 5 lanes down to 4, and pedestrians and cyclists get more room.

Issuing false documents to allow people to cheat the EI system is about as asinine a crime as any, especially when the system is failing honest people. A Toronto employment consultant is accused of doing just that [Sun].

And SMS is back on Twitter for Rogers and Fido customers!
