Morning Brew: Lawyers argue Ford lacked authority to cancel Transit City, Real Jerk seeks injunction against eviction, and take stroll along the new Don River Park
Rob Ford had no legal right to cancel Transit City â at least according to lawyers Freya Kristjanson and Amanda Darrach, whose legal opinion was solicited by councillor Joe Mihevc. In a report that 's to be publicly revealed later this morning, it's argued that Ford really had no right no entering into a non-binding memorandum of understanding with the province that authorized a new transit plan. If that's the case, his new transit plan shouldn't be acted upon until it's approved by council. Stay tuned.
Looks like the Real Jerk isn't going down without a fight. The popular Caribbean eatery has hired legal counsel to seek an injunction to delay the eviction from their Queen Street and Broadview location. The restaurant's been ordered to leave their building on Tuesday â fingers crossed roti lovers.
The Post's Peter Kuitenbrouwer takes a tour of Toronto's newest hill and details his walk in the park. Don River Park is 9-hectares of greenery and trees that lies between the Distillery District and the Don Valley Parkway. The hill was artificially built and serves as a great vantage point to view all the new development in that corner of the city, including the old Unilever soap factory that's due to be turned into an office park and the section of land set aside for the athletes' village for the Pan Am Games.
For lovers of improv comedy, the news that Bad Dog Theatre has finally found a new home, is a relief. Since leavings its Danforth home last year, the theatre company has finally found a new home at Comedy Bar. Their new exclusive partnership will see Bad Dog providing in-house classes, as well as performing several weekly nights of shows at the bar. Evening classes will, however, remain at Fraser Studios.
