Morning Brew: Yesterday's heat didn't break the all-time record, protesters rally against KPMG cuts, Ford says it's up to us, winning Lottomax ticket still unclaimed, and Jays sweep Mariners
So was yesterday the record-breaking heat wave it was hyped to be? Well, yes and no. While yesterday was definitely hot-tastic, besting the old July record from 1955 at 37.5 degrees, we did not beat the overall record of 38.3 that was set in August 1948. At least, not yet.
This group got together pretty quickly. The Stop The Cuts network rallied yesterday at the KPMG headquarters to protest their cost-cutting suggestions. Apparently it was peaceful and everything, but I don't see the point. It's not like KPMG controls any of the decisions based on its suggestions.
...That's because apparently we do, according to Rob Ford. At the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new TTC rockets, Ford said it will be up to the taxpayers to decide what Toronto is going to look like. But he did add that having a safe city is priority, meaning a police officer will keep his job over someone who waters the city's plants.
Despite police refuting their story (not to mention all the online chiding), two Ontario men continue to claim there was an alligator in their local mill pond. Police hinted that the photograph of the reptile "may not be what it seems," but one of the men still swears he saw the creature with his own two eyes. It's times like this when I wish Robert Stack was alive to help solve this mystery.
