Morning Brew: Buddy and Pedro might be expectant fathers, Book of Mormon coming to Toronto, plastic bag fee debate rages on, Leafs win again
The Toronto Zoo might have an announcement to make soon, according to the Star. A zoo official told the newspaper that eggs have been laid in the zoo's penguin palace, which happens to house same-sex penguin "friends" Buddy and Pedro, and their "mates," as well as a third penguin couple. The zoo will not confirm the news.
Singing Mormons are coming to town next year. Yesterday, David Mirvish announced the Tony Award-winning musical, "The Book of Mormon," by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, will be coming direct from Broadway for their 2012-2013 season.
And the plastic bag fee debate rages on. The Sun (of course) reports that Rob Ford's executive committee will hear a proposal from councillor Michelle Berardinetti next week about finding a way to encourage businesses to donate the nickel towards the city's emerald ash borer effort I have to admit, this proposal might make the most sense, but after this, can we just stop talking about it?
So now that Ontario Place has been shut down, the National Post asked nine local architects, urban planners and urban critics how they would spruce up the place. Some ideas: Turning it into an experimental community that serves as the origin of Toronto's farming revolution; making it as original as possible (meaning no casinos); make it the floating city it always wanted to be.
