Morning Brew: Police warn against RIDE tweeters, the city's underground river tunnel system, save your Christmas tree for another week, Ryerson reviews the Grid, and Ford wavered on garbage contract
Police are asking people to refrain from tweeting RIDE checkpoints during the holidays, especially for this New Year's Eve. Those who do the tweeting argue they're saving sober drivers the traffic headache, but police say their actions could cost people their lives. Though the tweeting isn't illegal per se, it just makes sense not to do it. Doesn't it?
We've covered this before but that doesn't mean OCAD grad Jeremy Kai's latest look at the river tunnel system underneath our city isn't worth a read. Besides looking like something from "Indiana Jones", the system reveals layers of Toronto's character and history, as well as paves the way for the new $1-billion project-that-sounds-like-a-rapper, the Wet Weather Flow Master Plan.
Thanks to the holidays and the unwrapping of all our gifts, our blue boxes are filling up fast so the city is asking for us to keep our Christmas trees for at least another week before putting them out for recycling. On average, the city collects 100,000 Christmas trees a year.
