Morning Brew: Extra TTC cash likely going to Wheel Trans service, Massey Hall gets more space, and the tiny cube house sells for over $350k
That five million that Josh Colle and Co. were able to save the TTC looks more and more like it's going to towards the maintenance of Wheel Trans service for dialysis patients around Toronto. Karen Stintz had initially indicated that her desire was to see the funds be used for the purchase of new streetcars, but that didn't sit too well with those who thought its best application was to reduce service cuts to bus routes. This new strategy is a compromise, it would seem. Is it a good one?
Thanks to a land donation from Toronto's MOD Developments Inc., Massey Hall now finally has the chance to have patron amenities that we often take for granted. You know, like more washrooms and bars â fancy stuff like that. The development firm recently bought the Canadian Bank of Commerce Building, Massey Hall's neighbour, and plans to donate 4,804 square-foot section of land to the concert hall.
Turns out dinosaurs were good parents. According to new study by University of Toronto and Royal Ontario Museum researchers, dinos were a compassionate sort, even nurturing their babies during the embryonic stage. The study was seven years in the making after the team discovered the oldest dinosaur eggs ever discovered in South Africa's Golden Gate Highlands National Park.
So Toronto's tiny cube house that looks like a stack of Legos sold for "well over" the asking price of $349,000. The little house was in high demand â the winning couple, with a child, beat out five other bidders for the house. Not bad for a house without a kitchen.
